Before & After Cancer Surgery Pics

For those of you who follow my blog on a regular basis, you will remember the post about my Mom's cancer surgery. Below is a photo of my Mom the day after the surgery.

Here is a follow up photo 2 months later. AMAZING!!! My Mom is still somewhat dismayed that her nose is now a different shape. Other than that, she's happy to HAVE a nose. It will be several more months before the nose is totally healed. Eectrolysis will be necessary to remove stray hairs that keep popping up on the nose. This is because the flap of skin used for reconstruction was close to the hairline and some hair follicles have transplanted themselves onto the tip of the nose.

My 79-year young mom.

Thanks, Laquita! She's doing well and by year's end, there should be no signs of the surgery. God is good! He keeps us strong during those difficult moments that life presents to us.
