Tomorrow is a day I dread.  It's a day I've dreaded too many times since my diagnosis a little over 2 years ago now.  At first it was a follow-up every few weeks to take out stitches and remove other funky moles, and then every 3 months and now it's every 6 months unless something changes.  Tomorrow is my first 6 month follow-up, my 2-year (a little late) post-cancer appointment.
And I dread it.
Because I have yet to go to the dermatologist for a full check since being diagnosed with melanoma and NOT end up having to go back in for surgery.  So yeah... bad track record on that.
I've got faith this time, that it will be different from every single other time... but I still have that sense of dread to go along with it.

So here's to fingers crossed.
Here's to hoping.
There's always a first time for everything right?
I think tomorrow should be that day!
