I've been tagged for a photo meme by Suzanne from Colorado Lady. It's super-easy.
1. Go to the the 4th folder where you keep your pictures on your computer.
2. Post the 4th picture in the folder.
3. Explain the photo.
4. Tag 4 fellow bloggers to join in the fun!
So, what is this gross, but kind of cool, picture? The fourth folder of My Photos is Cancer and this is the fourth photo. It is a picture of the underside of my right arm. We have been documenting the growth of the sclerosis on my arms and legs for several months. >Graft vs. Host Disease is one of the side effect complications from my bone marrow transplant that I had 2 1/2 years ago. The new bone marrow kills the cancer, knowing that it's a foreign body, but then it sometimes attacks the patient's body, because that is foreign to the marrow also! Since our largest organ is our skin, that's where it shows up first. It looks like a big scar, it's very hard and doesn't squeeze, and it really is those colors of yellow, purple, and pink! I have a smaller one on my left arm and I used to have them on my calves but they went away. This hardening is now on the outside of my lungs, which restricts their expansion and my ability to get enough oxygen, which is why I have a tank.
