well snarklands question of the week last Monday was "How’d you get that scar?"
(why do elboes look so ugly)
And since I have one of the best scars I think I've seen though I would show it off. I started writing this before snarklands next question and here it is Thursday so I better hot foot it and finish it. The scar was cased by removal of an invasive tumour that was wrapped around and through my elbow - There are actually two scars as the first time it was removed they didn't get it all. I was about 10 at the first operation and I think 11 at the next. It was benign and thankfully has not grown back and I never really gave it that much thought as a child - but now I probably think about it more. The older I get the more I think about cancer - the whole am I more likely to de from cancer as I have had a tumour before? and since Kaelyn was born I think more about how it might have impacted on my parents - because when I went in for surgery they had no idea whether it was benign or not - I'm not sure I even knew that much about cancer - certainly I don't remember being worried. But being a parent I can only imagine how scary that would have been for them.
