A good friend of mine does. But before I go into the details of this special day for her, I need to backtrack a little.
Yesterday, I blogged about a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. The next step after the biopsy that diagnosed her was for her to have an MRI to stage her (to find out how far along the cancer was) So, she had her "girl" MRI'd, and, let's just say, you don't have this test done with many clothes on.
Let me have her tell you (with her permission!) what happened next.
Of course, after it was over and I was standing in my little cubbyhole [not dressed enough for public display], the fire alarm went off. I finished dressing, peeked out and lights were flashing and the PA system said, “Code Red in Atrium”, but nobody was running away. The fire trucks were there, too, but guess it was a false alarm.
And you thought YOU had a bad day.
Well, when she saw the surgeon, he told her that her lumpectomy would have to be done on a Wednesday, because he only does lumpectomies on Wednesdays.
For my friend, it's Lump Day. Hopefully, the hospital won't have a fire alarm in the middle of her surgery.
My friend loves puns. And so, I'm busy trying to round up greeting cards with pun themes. I've got one I will send out to her soon.
There is nothing funny about cancer, yet, her stories have a way of making me smile.
My friend reads my blog regularly, so those who left well wishes or offers of prayers yesterday will be read by her, and appreciated. Thank you.
You, my readers, are the best.
