I could've gone my whole life without saying those words.
I have had a "spot" above my right eye brow. For a long time I thought it was the remnants of a bad eyebrow waxing job; that my face was paying for my vanity.
However... it didn't go away. It didn't get better. It turned into a source of denial.
And then it started hurting occasionally.
My doctor didn't like the way it looked and referred me to a dermatologist. Two and a half months later I got to see a Nurse Practitioner at a dermatology practice. She was very nice until she started saying words like biopsy and cancer and using initials that some might not know, but that I do know.
Now I wait for a pathology report. And pray that I will be peaceful, no matter what (join me please). And wear a hat. And sunscreen.

My flesh and my heart fail;
But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
