New Skin Doc

I went for a skin check at my new dermatologist. I liked the old one well enough but want to use the doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering so we're all on the same page. My diagnosis of melanoma in October means I have to be alert, and have my skin checked every 3 months. I also have to examine my own skin to look for anything suspicious. I'm good at this. When my former oncologist said it was chemo burn, I went to the dermatologist myself.

Dr. Mario Lacatoure (I keep think "locatelli") said there was no sign of cancer on my skin, but he was going to prescribe various ointments for my skin tightening and flakiness. I'll give it a try, especially if I can ameliorate the rock-hard feeling in my arms and mid-section.

Tomorrow I head for Rhode Island to stay with my friend Sue. On Wednesday I have an appointment at the Boston Foundation for Sight to see why my new lenses are misbehaving. It's always something.

Hope the new creams work. I have a drawer full of them. And sorry the lenses are misbehaving. What does that mean, anyway?
