MIL has skin cancer on her lower eyelid...
Along with COPD, diabetes and CHF. She went to meet with surgeon today and I was under the false impression that the cancer was on her eye BALL, not lid. She met with dermatologist that would be doing the surgery and said that it will grow but it is not affecting her vision nor causing her any other trouble at this time and she said to think about the surgery before proceeding. She said she would not be put to sleep for this (her cardiologist said no more surgery that would require her being put to sleep) and that it would take all day and she would not be sedated. Just locals for the surgery and that the instruments that would be necessary to protect her eye would be "uncomfortable" (Don't you love when a doctor says that??)
She has had 13 stints in her heart and has had quadruple bypass and even has stints in the bypasses! She is 82 years old and I believe she is considering not having the surgery.
Between her and my mom, we are busy taking care of them!
