Cancer Strikes at 46

On February 27th, 2009 i had a suspicious mole removed. On march 10th i got the word "malignant melanoma"!!!
UPDATE 3/30: The biopsy was clean, I now have to have biopsies taken of my lymph nodes on April 29th.
UPDATE 4/29: I had 2 lymph nodes taken from my armpit and 3 moles taken off my back.
UPDATE 5/6: Three scars and a lot of pain later I'M CANCER FREE, Praise The Lord!!!
Although i'm cancer free I'm suffering from a lot of post surgery complications, please
keep me in your prayers. My armpit filled up with fluid and they drained about a quart
out of it on 5/13. They put in a penrose drain.
UPDATE 8/1: All healed up!!!

On a side note: I lost my vision in march, the doctor checked my blood sugar and it was 460.
I had no idea i was a diabetic. With the help of a pill a day and learning how to eat right,
my eyesight has come back plus some, and my blood sugar is back under 100.
UPDATE: April 29, 2012 - Its been over a year since i've taken any medication for diabetes. Praise The Lord again!!!!
