That's wonderful

Even if it takes a lot of courage, it is always better to try to stay optimistic. It keeps your mind open to wonderful things, and maybe even causes them to happen.

Those tattoos probably won’t be noticeable as she grows up.

Evelyn will be a hit in the medical journals, for sure.

(Do tell though ... are these medical tattoos permanent? I've never heard of that before!)

Hugs and kisses to Baby Evelyn!


Yes, they're permanent.. they're tattoos. They're just little dots about the size you might see from poking a pen or pencil straight down onto a piece of paper. Their purpose is to show the radiation tech exactly where to aim the radiation so it's in the same spot for each treatment. Not sure if they do this for every radiation patient or not - maybe only when it's critical they hit the exact same spot every time.


What a badge of honour in this case!

While not scars per se, I think the sentiment still applies.

Well, she will have surgical scars from the tumour removal & where they made an incision on one shoulder to take a piece of muscle to fill the tumour void with. Things were cleaned up by a plastic surgeon but there will still be scars.
