Sorry it's been so long since I've checked in....Things are going great!! At my last checkup at Vanderbilt, I did have a new spot that my kids nicknamed "smiley mole", I'll post a pic below so you can see how they got the name...anyways, the new spot had some irregular vascular patterns that my Dr thought was unusual and warranted a biopsy. Thankfully, the smiley mole was removed because the pathology came back as a moderate dysplastic melanocytic nevus (in other words, on it's way to becoming another melanoma). Good news is, it was caught very early and my Dr excised the lesion with clear margins, so no more surgery. I go back to Vandy in early August for another routine checkup

In other news, I ran my second half marathon (13.1 miles) with a time of 2:03 on April 6 in Xenia, OH. It was a beautiful run with some amazing friends from my running group. This was definitely a "shove it in cancer's face" moment :-)
