I was brushing Mooch's hair the other day when I noticed a freckle that came out on her hairline a year or so ago, had changed color and had gotten slightly bigger. I studied it a bit more and the edges are slightly uneven. Mooch has blonde hair and is fair complected, and plays outside 90% of the time. We are ok with sunscreen .. the kids always have it on summer days, but we could be better about re-applying. And Mooch tans ... where The Mister and I will burn, she turns this deep honey-caramel color and her hair bleaches out to white-blonde.
Cancer is not a stranger to our family ... my Grammom died of lung cancer and my aunt died of colon cancer. My mind almost immediately goes to "the big C"
I touched the freckle lightly, then kind of dragged my nail across it and asked Mooch if it hurt. She said it did not. I don't know if this says anything or not - it just made me feel slightly better.
We are going to see our pediatrician today, who I know will probably not tell us anything, just give us a referral to a dermatologist.
Please, send us whatever good vibes, prayers, thoughts, whatever. Please think of our little family and especially my Mooch today.
