Diagnosis C44.91 – Basal Cell Carcinoma of Skin

    I just heard from my doctor’s office.  The lab results are back and the place on top of my head is a Basal cell carcinoma.  They are going to get me an appointment with a Dermatology doctor in Fort Worth.  

 

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. The two most common types are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. They usually form on the head, face, neck, hands, and arms. Another type of skin cancer, melanoma, is more dangerous but less common.

Anyone can get skin cancer, but it is more common in people who

  • Spend a lot of time in the sun or have been sunburned
  • Have light-colored skin, hair, and eyes
  • Have a family member with skin cancer
  • Are over age 50

You should have your doctor check any suspicious skin markings and any changes in the way your skin looks. Treatment is more likely to work well when cancer is found early. If not treated, some types of skin cancer cells can spread to other tissues and organs. Treatments include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy (PDT), and biologic therapy. PDT uses a drug and a type of laser light to kill cancer cells. Biologic therapy boosts your body’s own ability to fight cancer.   ICD-List Diagnosis Code

  I just wait now for the doctor’s office to inform me of my appointment date.  I was told that it might be five or six weeks before my appointment.

Trump’s budget would cut a billion dollars from the Coast Guard

 President Trump’s budget would cut $1.3 billion from the U.S. Coast Guard!
The USCG has a budget of about $9 billion.  
President Trump wants to take that USCG money and give it to the Department of Homeland Security.  He wants to give that department a 6% increase and make their budget $43.8 billion.

  President Trump talks about giving the “military” more money.  President Trump talks about his love of and support of law enforcement.

   The United States Coast Guard (USCG) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the country’s seven uniformed services. The Coast Guard is a maritime, military, multi-mission service unique among the U.S. military branches for having a maritime law enforcement mission (with jurisdiction in both domestic and international waters) and a federal regulatory agency mission as part of its mission set. It operates under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, and can be transferred to the U.S. Department of the Navy by the U.S. President at any time, or by the U.S. Congress during times of war.
  

 

  The United States Coast Guard is a military and a law enforcement.  We need to hold down military spending but I do not think we spend enough on the USCG.
   
   I fear that cutting money from the USCG is going to affect their motto:  Semper Paratus (Always Ready).

At last I got a few hours of sleep

At last, I got a few hours of sleep.  The cold has prevented me from getting any sleep for the last few days.  I just got a few hours of sleep and it is 6 AM.  Now that I am up .. I think I might be a little better.
My nose has been running non-stop for days.  Plus I had other problems.
I attempted other say of sleeping ..none of them worked.
I been up for a few minutes and hope I am on the road to normal.

There are no OTC medications that someone with my medical conditions should take.  Hilary did searching on the web and could not find anything for me to take.
I could not stand it any longer and asked her to go and get me Contact.  She came home with Contac and Coricidin.  

How long does it take to get a cold from someone?

On March 1st I went to my doctor to have a biopsy done on a place on top of my head.  I also had him remove a large thing on top of my shoulder.  I will get the report on the biopsy in 4 or 5 days.  The doctor said he is 95% sure it will come back as cancer.

The doctor had symptoms of a cold.  I asked if had a cold.  He said no.
Today I have a cold.  I have a runny nose, scratchy throat, and a fever now.  

So I looked up “How long does it take to get a cold from someone?” 

You will typically begin to notice symptoms, such as a runny or stuffed-up nose, coughing or a scratchy throat about two or three days after you become infected with the virus that causes the common cold. Other symptoms of the common coldcan include: sneezing, a fever, headaches, watery eyes and fatigue.

Trump Uses Navy Seal’s Widow As Political Prop

Look to see much more of this in the coming years. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go

“The lasting image from President Donald Trump’s first speech to Congress was that of widow Carryn Owens, crying as Trump honored her late husband, Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, with an extended standing ovation.

Trump cast as a success the U.S. military raid of an al-Qaida affiliate complex in Yemen, despite Owens’ death.

“Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation,” Trump said on Feb. 28. “I just spoke to our great General Mattis just now who reconfirmed that, and I quote, ‘Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemy.’ Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity.”

The raid, which took place in central Yemen on Jan. 29, was Trump’s first counterterrorism operation after taking office. Administration and Defense Department officials have praised the operation for gathering intelligence from documents and electronic devices in the house, and for killing at least a dozen combatants including Abdulrauf al Dhahab, a leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

But the event and its aftermath have been more controversial than Trump’s description let on.

Some lawmakers, pundits and news reports have criticized the raid — saidto be an intelligence-gathering operation — because it turned into a lengthy firefight that killed Owens and potentially dozens of civilians, wounded three American soldiers, and destroyed a $70 million helicopter. They have also questioned the quality of the intelligence gathered.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., called the operation “a failure” because the terrorists were allegedly tipped off in advance.”*

Shooting of Indian Man at a Bar in Olathe KS

Back in the early 70s, God I am old, I worked  for a security company as a patrol officer.  I forget the name of the bar but it was in Olathe (KS) and near the  Olathe Naval Air Station.  I had to go into the bar at about 2 AM and clear everyone out.
The bar always had a lot of people from the military base.  I did not look forward to closing a bar filled with marines but it was my job.  I can remember a few young USMC men saying they were not going to leave.  I was in my 30s.  I think any one of those 18 year old marines could have kicked my ass.  I just told them it was my job and they were done drinking for the night.  If they got up from their chair I just turned the  chair over and put it on their table.  
I made it without getting into a fight.  But I was glad when I moved to a different job.

I wonder if that is the bar where the Indian man was killed the other day.  Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was shot at a bar in Olathe.  It was a hate crime.  

See the CNN story.

  The shooter is reported to have said “Get out of my country.”

My comments on a video about Donald Trump and Ivanka

 

 A policial hate site on YouTube called “Trump Truth Watch” made a very sick YouTube video about President Trump and his daughter Ivanka.
  You all know I am NOT a President Trump supporter but that video caused me to create and post this video.
   
   I made this ranting and raving video a couple of days ago.
Today I went to YouTube and the About tab and I found this:

64,461 subscribers 35,599,599 views 

Exposing the truth about the Trumps and all their allies. I'm into politics, conspiracies and the truth. I also post news clips related to the president, including of Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer and Stephen Miller.
