On Thursday, February 22nd
I had my 9th minor sugery
and was given my 9th scar.
may not have been necessary.
The surgery may have saved my life.
On 2/22/01 I found out for the 9th time that one of my
was too unusual
for my own good.
"Irregular mole, severe dysplasia"
said the doctor.
She tried to compare the
on my back
to the ones in pictures
taken by my previous dermatologist.
they were poor black and white copies
of the original.
Now I am taking the pictures and telling the stories.
