By all the good vibes and support. Thank you, friends - your energies are not wasted!
The doctor said he could see why I was concerned, that the freckle definitely had a slight color variation and the edges were ragged. He referred us to a dermatologist, who we will see Monday morning at 9:00. The Mister is an absolute wreck - he almost stayed home from work yesterday, and he just keeps hugging her. She's a little confused about why she's getting all this attention - I tried explaining it as sometimes you have moles or freckles that can make you sick, and it's important that a dermatologist look at them and make sure they are ok. I will cross the burning-off-the-offending-spot bridge when I come to it. Given that The Mister had to physically restrain her as she kicked the nurse while getting her lead-screening blood draw, the Goddess only knows how THAT will go. I'm going to start stock-piling bribes.
While my rational mind still says it's nothing, and if it is anything we have caught this very early, I can't shake this cold pit in my stomach. I give full props to any parent who has to deal with a serious illness in their child's life ..
Thank you for all your continued prayers and healing energy ... you are all a blessing!
