Off we tootled yesterday to see the surgeon. He was rather haughty, and looked closely at Mme Thumb, and decided that he wasn’t quite sure how to deal with her, but he wanted to do it asap. So I am now on the urgent list 8|
He said that he wasn’t convinced that it was a melanoma ‘in situ’ – which is the less sinister melanoma that is only in the top layers of the skin. He was going to hack off most of the thumb pad and then have another histology report. It might be invasive melanoma instead, he said, which is much more serious and I could die from it 8| 8| 8|
Why couldn’t he have been more direct and to the point, I wonder: :lalala:
Anyway, if it is, then I would have to go back and have more of the thumb off. Sounds a bit longwinded to me – I’d rather have it all done in one fell swoop :yes: Vive Madame La Guillotine!!
We shall see. Meanwhile, poor old Hub was having a rough time. He’d dropped me off at Outpatients and gone to park the car. A woman was just backing out so once she was clear, he started to move into her space. At that moment a guy in a car just beyond her drove straight into Hub’s car, on the driver’s side.
They both got out. The other driver was foul-mouthed and abusive. Shouted that he had agreed with the woman who had just gone that he would have her space (oh yeah??) That he was going to call the police. That it was Hub’s fault.
Hub pointed out that the other driver was the one that had gone into him, not vice versa. He said he would welcome a call to the police. And could he have the other guy’s insurance details?
He thought the other guy was going to hit him. In the end he said if he would give him the insurance details then the other guy could have the space. The other guy refused and stormed off. Hub took down his number plate, and arrived in the waiting area rather upset and shaken up.
For many years now we’ve had a policy of celebrating the downs as well as the ups … 😉 … so we went home and had chocolate cake and tea and I went for another paddle :>>
