"Good news today? The biopsy on the tip of my nose shows it to be a pre cancerous Actinic Keratosis and the doctor will treat it with nitrogen on Thursday morning. This was the best news possible for me and I am really thankful I didn't wait any longer. The small sore that never healed has been on the tip of my nose for at least three years. I just couldn't bring myself to deal with it the last year while Karl was still with me and even over a year after his death. It was foolish on my part but it looks like everything will be alright after all.
Tomorrow, I am going to Shark Valley in The Everglades National Park so there won't be any painting but. . . . . life is GOOD!"
