Asking for good luck dust for my dh...

I have seen the power of PS dust and I am asking for some now if possible for my dh. A few weeks ago he was diagnosed with a melanoma on his thigh and he is having surgery next week. The cancer specialist says we caught it early (stage 2) and he will be fine but I am nervous all the same so if we could get some PS dust it would be much appreciated!

My dh has been going for skin checks every 6 months because he has a history of basal cell carcinomas which are no big deal, not invasive, and removed by our dermatologist. This past June our derm recommended that my dh go for high resolution photographs called mole safe due to the fact that he has so many of these on his body and it would be easier to keep track of them this way. So, in July, he went for the mole safe test and a spot was flagged as suspicious unbeknownst to us. Our derm's office called us in August (not sure why it took almost 6 weeks for them to call because my dh was told after the mole safe test that he would be contacted with the results and we did not call them because of that) and asked him to come in for a biopsy. The biopsy revealed it was a melanoma and our derm referred us to the cancer specialist with whom we consulted this past Monday and the surgery is scheduled for next week.

I know PS dust will work its magic (along with the surgeon of course)!
Thanks so much!!

Thank you for your good wishes and dust Yssie!

I thought typing it out would make me feel better about the situation (in addition to getting all the PS dust!) but it actually made me feel worse because I got all aggravated again with how mishandled I feel this has been. Thank goodness it is early but it could have been caught and taken out much earlier in actuality as the molesafe test was done back in July! Maybe he was at a stage 1 then and so of course I am all upset again. The whole point of following him as closely as our dermatologist does is to catch something like this (because he is at greater risk) ASAP.

All I care about is that he is OK. I am scared but I am hoping the cancer specialist is right and my dh will be just fine after the surgery. I just wish the biopsy had been done as soon as the mole was flagged in July as it would have been caught so much earlier. Melanomas are very invasive and can grow fast. :((

Thank you so much minmin and tyty!
I know you are right tyty- I just hate the waiting and the uncertainty of it all. As soon as the surgery goes well and the doctor tells us he is just fine I will be so relieved.

Thank you so much amys bling, dancing fire, kelpie, missgotrocks, isaku, lil misfit, okie girl, swingirl, and junebug!
My dh and I truly appreciate your good wishes, thoughts and PS dust! Love the squished fairy Kelpie ;))

He is taking it all in stride and not even thinking about the surgery. Work has been crazy busy for him (working most of the weekends and evenings and early early mornings) the last few weeks with no end in sight and he hasn't even shared this info with the CEO or CFO. Starting Monday (day of the surgery) it is the annual company meeting where the LA people and NY people get together for a week and it's a big deal and my dh said it isn't cool to miss it so believe it or not he plans on going to work afterwards! We'll see how he feels but he is stubborn like a mule sometimes but if he wants to and is able to that is totally fine with me but I think he is not being realistic.
But the PS dust can only help so thanks!!

Lots of dust, Missy... I'm sure this is incredibly hard/stressful.. but it really shows the importance of taking care of yourself. Hopefully his diligence in getting check-ups has gotten him detected early enough that everything turns out well.

Again, dust dust dust...

:(sad This must be so tough for YOU. More hugs to you - I hope the specialist's take on this will ease your mind.

My DH is like that too, it's infuriating, but I'd be more worried if he did decide to take off, so... I'm glad yours is being his usual stubborn self! Please do keep us updated, I'll be thinking of you.
