Monday Motivation

by - February 29, 2016

Sometimes this is what we all need to hear.

My mom is having surgery today. Earlier this month she had a couple of places removed from her leg. One was cancerous. Although the doctor is fairly confident all of the cancer was removed, surgeons are taking out a lymph node just to be safe. While this situation hasn't been as bad as it could, it has motivated me to finally make that long-overdue dermatologist appointment.

I don't have a lot planned for the blog so far this week. Tuesday is the presidential primary for my state so I'll be working a different shift to handle our coverage of that. I am *not* looking forward to the turnaround between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning!

I hope everyone has a good week!

  1. Hi, Ashton!

    I will keep your mother in my prayers, dear friend. You are wise to make an appointment with a dermatologist. My father had fair skin and developed skin cancer later in life which required him to get treatment several times a year.

    I'm sorry you have a challenging week ahead but I know you can handle it. You always do and I admire your professionalism.

    Take care, dear friend Ashton!

    1. Thank you so much, Shady. My mom came through her surgery well. Luckily they found that the cancer had not spread anywhere else.

    2. I am very relieved to get this good news about your mother. Thanks for the update, Ashton!
