Now Playing Tracks

Is it painful? Why yes it is! Even after my Husband found that lump, even after all of the Drs talked to me, even after the surgery…I never felt like I had cancer…until I had to recover from it. For the first time I understand that I (I won’t say I’m sick. Can’t gp there) have a “condition.”
I was diagnosed over 2 months ago. Jumped through the apporpriate hoops. Waited. Waited and Waited. Everyone telling me that I had cancer. Yet, only now, am I starting to feel the impact.
I am not dying. Nowhere close. I hit a speed bump. Blew a gasket. The Universe stepped in and stopped me in my tracks. And..I am tired to my bones. And angrier than you can imagine.
I know that there’s a reason this happened. Will have to figure that out as I greet my 3rd week of recovery.

Sorry if this offends anyone, but…This is what breast cancer recovery looks like. I am just finishing with my 2nd week in recovery. Still don’t know about chemo. Hopefully will just be put on hormone blockers to keep everything at bay. Had 1 drainage tube removed last week. The left side continues to be troublesome, though.
I have grown weary of seeing women covering up their non existant breasts in ads and on line posting. I feel it’s important that women (and men) really know what it looks like. Especially recovery which has been the hardest part of my battle, so, far.

On January 22, 2014 I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. My boob didn’t neccessarily hurt. It just had a hard, smooth lump in it that my Husband found. It was that simple. And suddenly my Wonderful Life in Narnia got very complicated very quickly.

I will be posting about my journey here as I recover from a double masectomy and await further treatment.

2014 certainly started off with a bang

Away Again

He’s Away again
But now it’s kind of okay
He’s Away again
We’re in a Married Way

Now

He’s Away again
I look at my simple ring and know
He may be Away again
And he loves, loves me, although

Now

I wish he was home with me
with his deep brown Brazilian eyes
Telling me I am Beautiful
Filled with everything but lies

Now

He’s Away again
And it’s kind of okay
He is My Husband, My Smile
He can be Away. Away from me
For a while

He’ll be Home soon
To hold me and make me well
Until then
I try not to howl at the moon

Now

I will close my eyes
Whisper “Good Night, Meu Marido”
Tuck myself in on my side of the bed
And wait for the surprise

Of when he comes home to me and it’s Us and

Now

SUPER GIRL

Super Girl has found her Folly
Upon finding Him Exclaimed
a simple “Golly!”


Never saw him there
Never thought he’d be
Here.

 And yet here he stands
Never perturbed by my stupid
demands

Listen to me, Make me well
A smile in his eyes
He replies
Everything about you rings a Bell

He makes me wonder and shake my head
And then I exhale and realize
that My Husband has removed the dread

The dread that I lived with for far too long
til I walked away
and became strong
someone who would not be swayed

I was Super Girl and fixed All
Well, all that was worth fixing
And then He was there, all handsome and Tall
Our temperaments were ripe for Mixing

And so it was was Super Girl
Met a Man that mad her
Unfurl
Fall in Adore
Retain her Powers
Allowing herself to embrace her gits
without it seeming a chore

Because someone found her, loved her and reminded Super Girl that she is Indeed Super.

The Minute a woman’s face
Crumbles in despair
that’s when you
know she is there
She is Present
She is Whole
She is Effervescent
She is young
She is Old
She is here

She is Now

She is yours to hold,

Don’t let go….
