Skin cancer

   Recently I was found to have Actinic Keratoses which is a precancerous skin growth. It's caused by too much sun over too many years. For it I was prescribed Flourourcil cream which I have apply twice per day.
   There's a two week period of applying the cream. Then a two week break. And then another two weeks of applying the cream.
   If you get the cream on undamaged skin it doesn't do anything. On damaged skin it causes a nasty rash. You'll even have layers of skin peel off. Sometimes you'll feel the cream burn.
   As of now I'm into a week my second two week cream applying period. No burning this time which is nice. The skin is a little sensitive near my glasses bows is all which is nice. I will be glad next Thursday when I completely finish the treatment.
   On a more pleasant subject tomorrow we should be going to Monument Lake. Susan will be fishing and I'll try to get some photos. I'm also finally going to break out the kite.
   Have a great and try to enjoy life.
