For the last year or so I have been bugging Michelle to go to the dermatologist. We are a very white bunch and we have been living a bit closer to the sun over the last 11 years (5 in Colorado Springs and 6 at a slightly higher elevation here in Guanajuato). About 2 months ago we went to see the skin doctor. The doc said she was surprised she didn't find anything on Michelle. Michelle is very pale. Good news, although now I'm thinking my odds don't look so good. It's not a good sign when the skin doc says, "You've been out in the sun a lot!" especialy when you just told her that just a few minutes earlier. After inspecting my upper body the doctor ask me to take off my pants so we could continue the examenation. I normaly don't wear underwear and that day at the doctors was no exception. After alerting her to that fact she said not to worry that we could just start on the upper body and work our way down. I'm a work in progress.
Take 2 they're small.
I stared my treatment with Efudix, 3 and a half weeks ago. Efudix is a cream that gives the paitent a chemical peel. It's also know as chemo-cream. Think of it as chemotherapy in a tube. It's almost as much fun as it sounds. The 1st week you don't notice much. 2nd week you look and feel like you have a sun burn. The 3rd week your skin begins to ooze and sometimes bleed. Ooze is a wonderful word that my girls were unfamiliar with until about a week ago.
It's hard to see the ooze in the foto because it's
kind of clear. And this morning there were no
fresh bloody spots. I'm lookin' pretty good.
This morning when I awoke the areas around my eyes were very swollen. Not sure what that's about. I hope to be done soon.

I have spent much of my 38 years on this planet outside. I would not change that. I would never want to give up all of the amazing things I have experienced in the great outdoors, I would however wear a hat.
