My best friend, Ally C, (yes, I have more than one friend with the same name as me), said, “I hope you don’t die going under the knife!” Of course, that scared me really badly.
I had a birthmark removed from my shoulder this morning. It is a type of mole called a nevi. I was actually very scared about being put under “twilight sleep.” I have had many surgeries on my legs due to my CP but I was very young and didn’t think about things like potentially not waking up.
I’m still feeling very drowsy from the anesthesia but I am really glad that I got this removed. The surgeon said that this was very important because there is an 8% chance that the nevi could turn into melanoma, which is a type of skin cancer. I’m just happy that I got it over with. Unfortunately, I feel like I have a sore throat and this is just not the time to get sick.
My new job starts Monday. Next week I will be working 20 hours at my current job and I will be working maybe 30 hours at my new job. I’m going to be working insanely next week. I think that I can make it but I will seriously be in bed by ten at the latest.
I’m going to lay down again, wish me luck next week.
