    Okay firstly let me thank you all for your amazing support. You are truely a wonderful group of people........ Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
    Secondly - an update..........
    The specialist has rung to say the melanoma is 2.6 mm deep. It also has alot of dividing cells and ulceration. This is not a good thing. He is organising a plastic surgeon, as i type.
    DH needs to have a dye injected around the melanoma site on the morning of his op. This dye will track back to the affected lymph nodes, which will be taken out later in the day under a GA. The plastic surgeon will also excise the original melenoma site with a 2 cm margin . It will take over a week for the lymph nodes to be checked, and heres hoping they do not have any signs of cancer within. However if they do, that is a story i don't want to tell for now. So another week or two of waiting anxiously.
    We are hoping that the plastic surgeon will fit DH in this week, but i am sure that my boy won't be the only person on the waiting list. It is so hard in this world of instantaneous results to have to wait.
    Anyway troups thank you again. I will be off line more than on, but will try and update when i can.
    My love to you all
    Tracy x

    Hugs to you Tracy, this is a very traumatic situation that you both are facing. It does sound as if you are getting the best care possible, I hope the surgery is scheduled very very soon and goes as well as possible in the circumstances. Love and blessings xoxox

    been working on my power cleans today at the gym. i went up 5kgs, so power cleaning a whole 30kgs LOL which sounds like nothing. it is all technique and not at all like that slow weight lifting i am used to which is why i am doing it. i almost got myself across the neck a few times. i still think i am doing it wrong as i can flick the weight up without any leaping around. either that or i am doing too light a weight. i have a bar at home so i will practise with some you-tubes. my grip is improving too. i still havent needed the silly fluffy adidas tennis wristbands for any reason other than decoration. up to being able to farmer's walk 66kgs ( 2 x 33kg dumbells). more than i weigh!! and if i add on the 10kg weighted vest which i can still do. even more than i weigh and then some!!! i am going to try lunging them next week just to see if i can.

    Secondly.....we have an appointment with the plastic surgeon tomorrow. 3 pm. This is just an appointment to organise the operation, so another day gone......... I must remember that this plastic surgeon possibly has a waiting list as long as your arm, with people like my DH waiting for an op........ Must be patient....... But it is easier said than done.
    DH is talking death and dying, and he's not gonna see his wee boys grow up, and he's not gonna see where his girls go with their lives. Hes not afraid of dying, but all these things are zooming through his mind. I am trying to say ......whoa.......... You are jumping the gun, but he is convinced that this is the end of the line.
    I have spoken with someone who deals with cancer and she has said that this is quite normal, until it becomes un normal. As in if he stops eating, or showering or continues on and on about dying......... Then i need to deal with it.
    Holy guacamole....... wasn't born into this role.
    I is struggling myself!!!!!!!
    Anyway i have managed to get sleeping tablets, so DH is sleeping, but i am tossing and turning a weeny bit myself.


    Anyway just drunken thoughts of a raging alcoholic Gwamma !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I shall hopefully report back tomorrow night.
    Take care everyone
