This morning I went with my oldest daughter to the dermatologist appointment that had been booked for her by her dr ages ago. She suddenly had all sorts of red marks appearing down the backs of her legs and inner thighs and a bit on the front. I thought that they almost looked like stretch marks, but that made no sense…at her age, for no apparent reason. The dr in town didn’t think that they were stretch marks, they weren’t really sure what they were, so they made the referral to the specialist. Anyway, the dr said that they were, indeed, stretch marks! He thought that they may have resulted in her taking a specific medication, but that wasn’t the case. He said she grew faster, too much growth – too quickly, than her skin was ready for and it stretched the skin. So strange. She’s only 19 and stoop growing years ago! She told me that she has gained a bit of weight since she graduated, but enough for a bunch of stretch marks to appear… I guess. Obviously they did, but it is so bizarre! They can’t really do much for her. There’s a cream that she could’ve bought that is available through them for $80. The cream is to improve elasticity to prevent more. He said we could use Bio Oil, which you can buy somewhere like Shoppers Deug Mart. I Hope that it’s cheaper than his cream. Her other optionis laser treatments. They said that it won’t get rid of them completely, they’ll lose the red pigment and just be sort of skin colour,silvery whiteish. It costs $200 per treatment. She has to call her insurance company to see if it’s covered at all. If not, I’m not sure if she’ll do it.
After her appointment, we got some food and went to the tattoo place to book an appointment for mother daughter tattoos that we want. We are getting the Disney characters Mrs Potts and Chip, from Beauty and the Beast. I’ll have Mrs Potts pouring watercolour tea into Chip, who will be on my daughter. If we put our arms together, you can really see how the scene goes together!! Our appointment is on Wednesday.
From there we went to Indigo Chapters. She bought herself a bunch of books 📚. She bought two blankets that were a reasonable price , with purchase. One for her and one for me…yay!!!!
Afterwards we came home. We watched a bit of TV, then we wè got my son from school. After school, we went to my mom and dad’s house. There we played a couple games and had supper and Birthday cake for me. Yay! My mom made angel food cake…mmmmm!!!
I’m falling asleep as I write, so I’m going to go to bed! Night all! 💤😴
