flapper,
How are your treatments going? My mother was diagnosed with metastic melonoma last week as well and begins her treatments right after Christmas. She was Melonoma free for 12 years and then out of no where it moved into her eye and now her lungs. Praying for you and hoping for the best. Please let me know how you are doing and what the treatments are like.
