Back to the doctor!

Back to the doctor!
My plan this morning was to head north to the high mountains, staying there for several days. However, this morning while shaving, I noticed a new and separate growth about 3mm from the initial basal cell carcinoma [BCC] growth. At my examination last Monday, Dr. Robles identified a 2nd BCC 15mm from the initial BCC.

Although metastatic BCC is rare, my having three separate growths in such a short period of time is alarming. So, this morning I am heading back to Dr. Robles' office again for another examination.

11AM - Doctor is out.
Upon arriving at the office of Dr. Robles, his receptionist informed me that the doctor is out of the office and will return at 3pm. So, MsTioga and The Team made a Camp in a field nearby to wait.

Our friend Weng.
While waiting, we took the opportunity to go online and visit the website of our friend Weng. Have you been following Weng? Her last post was really terrific. Very interesting as she described how Fran arrived and all that happened.

You should really take a look! [link]

3PM - Dr. Robles.
Back in the office with Doctor Robles, I explained my concerns about what to me appeared the rapidly growing carcinomas. Dr. Robles examined my nose once again. He reassured me that I should not be concerned. I have a lot of faith in Dr. Robles. As I told you before, the doctor comes highly recommended by my friends in Tequisquiapan.

So, I will wait for 10 August which is the date for my appointment to have the cancerous growths removed.

Dr. Robles visits MsTioga!
You may recall that Dr. Robles is very interested in the RVing life! During my initial visit, I gave him a Tioga-George business card with our internet and email address. The doctor has been reading our blog and many MsTioga Magazine pages too.

I invited Dr. Robles to visit MsTioga parked a short distance away. However, I forgot to let Little Mavicita take the doctor's pic during his visit!

By the way, Dr. Robles has been reading your ShoutBox posts, and commented to me about several of them!
