‎17 down, 18 to go….and midsummer reflections upon my left breast

Yes another one done…radiation was only 15 minutes behind today.  Wore my extra bright Pucci-like print pants again and made it a party. Had one of my Shipley gals as escort extraordinaire – Laura.

Left boob is red like a lobster, a little sore some days (like today), itchy others (yesterday) but no blisters so far knock on wood.  (I would like to escape that side effect that I have heard tell occurs) . The breast getting radiation looks like a donut peach that glows right now.

One of my Karens said (tongue in cheek) that is not enough detail and  she has to think of an analogy for her boob, but can’t think of anything that could top “donut peach that glows.”  – Mind you nothing wrong with her figure LOL.

A guy pal from high school Scott said:

 ” ‘An Analogy for My Boob.’  That sounds like one of those Romantic Period poetry titles, you know, on the order of “Ode to a Grecian Urn” or something.”

Giggles all around as Karen’s retort quipped rapid speed across my Facebook page when she said:

” ‘Midsummer Reflections Upon My Left Breast’… the British version”

Proverbial hat tip to said Karen for giving me partial post title.

I have now hit my daily wall of tired and worked a full day to boot.  I have 1 6/8 boobs.

Life and time march on…every day a little bit closer

Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine
