Surgery and Sixteen Sessions Complete


 

surgery and  

sixteen sessions complete 

 

was this a bad dream 

did I have breast cancer 

 

time to wake up and live 


******



when it all started 

kept my hopes high and fears low 

with faith in medicine 

and support from loving friends 

survivor with an attitude 


******


Alfred wishes on 

the star for all patients to 

be cancer-free 


The ceiling light in the treatment room has a landscape photo of mountains in various stages of sunshine and shadow.  As I always do, I like to find human shapes when possible.  It didn't take me too long to find a caricature of a male face that I named "Alfred" who appeared to be looking at a star.
