Waiting for Savasana




I got a haircut because it was too difficult to brush it myself and forget about a ponytail. My arms hurt post mastectomy. I looked in the monitor camera thingie and thought, gosh I’ve aged. So I made this face to stretch the wrinkles. And my boys photobombed me.
I will loose my hair very soon but that’s no reason to look like a mess before then.
The hair cut wore me out. I took a two hour nap afterwards and had dreams of cockroaches and bedbugs. All I was trying to do was look for a place to rest but all I found was stink and bedbugs and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I gotta get off these pain meds.

Today has been ok.  I met with my friend Sugar who has been to Hell and back and she gave me hope and good advice.  And she bought me lunch and cupcakes.

And life goes on.  I helped with homework and science fair projects.  We ate dinner.

I’m stressed about the body scans.  I mean I already jumped from suspected stage 1 to stage 3.  Stage 4 may be around the corner…or it may not.  We won’t know until we know and the only way to know is to take invasive tests.  Hooray!

That’s why I’m making this funny face as I sport my super fashionable mastectomy post-op camisole under my baggie hoodie.

This is my life, gotta make a stupid face because I can not fall apart.

  1. Beth, I am praying for you. You are a strong girl, and I know in my heart that you will be okay. I have told my sister Diane about you as she, too, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will be having a double mastectomy on Monday, April 29, in Indianapolis. I am thinking about you always and keeping you in my prayers. God’s blessings…With love, Betty Schoff

  2. I’m so glad you’ve got your sense of humor through all of this. Your attitude and candor impress me! And I didn’t think you look old!

  3. Love the hair, but especially love the photobomb! Thank you for sharing your journey with us all; Sylvia asks about you every day and I am so grateful to you that I can keep her updated on your progress. We’re all pulling for you, Beth!

  4. You look adorable. And your hair looks very much like the last time I saw you *mumblemumble* years ago at good ole LPHS.
