I think I have mine under control finally.  We've bombed twice and I am so tired of vacuuming but gotta do it.  The internet says to do it daily for two weeks but I just can't do that much, every other day is the max.  Just a little hint:  In a shallow dish put some water with liquid soap in it.  Sit the dish on the floor with a bright light over it and the little vermine will jump right in.  I have been catching a few and hope that this along with vacuuming and of course Frontline on the cat will take care of things.  It did frost here the other night so that should cut down on the ones we carry in front outside.  Have you figured out someway to kill your fleas without leaving the House?  Hey, Good Luck at the dermatologist this week!!!!!

Try not to worry or dwell on the biopsy too much, I'm getting a biopsy done on Tuesday
yes it's very scary, but let's wait till the test results come back before we start to worry,
However, you will be in my thoughts and Prayers and good luck

CCC, My father has had skin cancers removed many times due to his life of working outside, he was a carpenter. He's even had some melonomas removed.
He has had them burned off, frozen off, and cut off.

I hope you do well.

PS. Advandage is not the best flea removal, frontline is. You can get temporary flea killer for your cats...it's called capstar. It kills any fleas on them for 24 hours. I usually pay $6.00 per dose for my cats.

Yea, my dad's one of those tough guys, too. He acts like nothing bothers him. The only time I've seen him weaken was when he had his heart attack. Even though it was a mild heart attack, he scared the be-jammers out of us all.

Lymp nodes, and will have around 4 stitches and it's done with a local anest. which is the part I hate the most
as it'd be easier if they just would put me to sleep for this, but anyways, will wish you the best for your
biopsy and hope it's not cancer...prayers...
lots of soft hugz

I heard fennel seed repels the little suckers. I'm going to try that on my boys (kitties). It says to crush it up and put in in a spray bottle.

Crazy, it took 4days for me to get mine back< and the Doc himself called and told me to get right back in to him the next day. I was in surgery the following week to have it removed. All turned out ok. It was only a .6......a 2 or a 3, then you need to worry as it can be deadly to you. Lets hope you caught it in time. Melanoma is nothing to mess around with.

also when it comes to Melanoma, tresatment is not to burn or freeze it off. The perfered treatment is to have it removed with surgery, and they cut all the way around it and deep as needed as well. Again its not something to mess with or put off. Just chill...and wait for the report, and hope it comes back ok.

good luck, just had my biopsyies done ended up with 8 stitches geezee, the doctor
originally said it's only be 3, take some tylenol before your biopsy, it has helped...
you might need to call your pm doctor and tell him/her your getting biopsyies done and if it's okay to take some extra
pain meds as it'll hurt...soft hugz to you and lots of them...
(((((((((((((((((((((((CCL))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
now the waiting beings the doc did say today that the results might come back sooner, but still hate the wait...

CCL,

I apologize for not having written to you much in the past. Between classes resuming, dealing with my CP, vision difficulties, & the works, and now being sick, I've been pretty scare since the beginning of September. But I just saw your mention of a biopsy. I want to wish you nothing but the best! That has got to be quite a scary prospect! I hope it goes well & the results are good! Hopefully your MRI today went smoothly as well & will give you some answers!
And I hope you can get those fleas under control! They can be quite nasty!

hugs,
Skeye
