This patient came to see me because she was concerned about an area on her eyelid where she was losing eyelashes. I recommended a biopsy of this area because of the irregular eyelid contour and loss of lashes. Pathology revealed a basal cell carcinoma (the most common type of skin cancer of the eyelid). She will now see a MOHS surgeon to have the cancer fully excised and return to me for reconstruction of the eyelid.
Sometimes eyelid cancer can present without an obvious bump but with changes in the eyelid contour, loss of eyelashes, ulceration or bleeding. Make sure to schedule an evaluation with your eye doctor if you note any such changes or any lumps or bumps on your eyelids!
I had an amazing night @lalunact in Branford, CT with @lowkeyglutenfree. Pictured here is Terra & Mare-
New York steak with grilled shrimp topped with wild mushrooms in a gorgonzola cream sauce served with potato and vegetables. Not only was the presentation stunning but every last bite was as well. It was perfectly cooked medium rare just how I like it! The mushrooms and gorgonzola were such a nice compliment to the steak. The shrimp was so tasty and perfectly cooked. Even the veggies were great! I highly reccomend this dish if you visit La Luna! I was one happy and full girl after this meal! #thehangryitaliangirl
I love this cat so much. It’s been 17 years and 4 months since the last time he was the only cat and his first time ever as the only pet. We’re finding our way through this household transition with some extra morning snuggles and evening playtime/grooming. The rest of each day seems to be the usual routine, including napping in the sunshine. #branford#oldmankitty#catsofinstagram#sundaysnooze#petsgrievetoo
What happens what you throw down a St. Patrick’s Day challenge to an awesome sushi chef? You get an incredible green theme lobster wasabi roll good enough for the St. Patrick himself (if he ate sushi). Thank you @superwen_1008 for accepting the challenge and making this an awesome night (again)! #sushi#ct#branford#ctshoreline#zagat#foodie#nomnom#stpatricksday

It's #worldsleepday today, and we turn to #JosephPilates ' writings on how to get quality #sleep when we are struggling! "If your sleep is disturbed, rise immediately and perform your [Pilates Mat] exercises. It is far better to be tired from physical exertion than to be fatigued by the 'poisons' generated by nervousness while lying awake…..Particularly beneficial in this regard are the spinal rolling and unrolling massage exercises which relax the nerves and induce sound, restful sleep." #pilates#pilatesmat#fitnessonthewater#fotw#fitness#ct#westbrook#branford
In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day we will be serving this delicious dish tonight and tomorrow night. Beer battered, local NON-GMO tofu cutlets, served with colcannon over sautéed greens and topped with horseradish sour cream.
Come celebrate with us!
