Wednesday 4th September
Today I should be driving to school for the first day of the new Autumn term. Instead, my husband is taking me to Exeter for an appointment to fill in forms, take blood pressure (a little higher than normal), test urine and to listen to an explanation of what to expect on Monday.
Sentinel lymph node biopsy is a staging procedure to find out whether the melanoma from the primary site (the mole on my left foot), has spread any further. The first port of call being the lymph nodes in my left groin.
Reality is beginning to kick in.
