MOHS surgery for Miz Boo

Sleepy Donna

This is my going home bandage.
I will leave in on for two days.  Then I have regular band aids with Vaseline.

This bandage was putting pressure on the wound.

I felt I was cared for.
She cut the outside of my nose more than I ever imagined she would.
So I cried and the assistant ran off to get the doctor.

(The Doctor got all the cancer in one try.  So I only had to wait for results once.
I was thankful that I did not have to stay another three hours. )

The Dr. showed me samples of how the body heals and she showed me dramatic pictures of before and afters.  She didn't feel I needed to see a Plastic Surgeon tomorrow.  She asked me to come back in to see her in two or three weeks.  She felt quite sure I would heal well.  And if things need help we will consult a Plastic Surgeon then.

It just shocked me and so I cried.
The Doc was sweet and rubbed my arm and tried to reassure me.

I was sleepy and wobbly from the medicine.  I did not say strange things but I did sleep in the lobby like a champ.  (I can not sleep ANYWHERE)
Patrick came with me and was very sweet.  He marveled at his sleeping wife and brought me a Pink Drink.

I feel ya Jack.
I feel ya.

Thank you for the thoughts and prayers.
I'm doing okay.  
Still a little dopey from the medicine.

Lots of love
Donna Elsie


  1. Glad you cried where someone with knowledge and experience could reassure you. It would have been sort of fun to see you sleeping in the lobby. And YAY-PRAISE GOD for getting it all in one fell swoop. Sleep tight tonight and thank you for the update.

  2. I echo Anita’s comment. Good bye cancer and let the healing begin! Love you. Mean it.

  3. Sending love and prayers, and encouragement: many are praying for successful healing of the wound. Rest like it's your job, dear Donna :)
    Hugs xx

    1. I love that...."rest like it's your job."
      I'm an excellent rester :o)

  4. glad to read they got it all.🙏for a great healing. I think we all would feel the same way about having a big bandage on our nose. Happy Sunday! I'm in Michigan visiting my oldest son and his wife. 😊
