the big C

My mother could not say the word "cancer"
It frightened her just to say it.
Silly, I know.
Equally silly is moi.
I refuse to wear or contribute to the pink little brooches people wear.
I keep thinking it is an invitation, a "bad thought" to invite cancer in your life.
So to my big surprise I found out the hard way that I have cancer.
Contained within the kidney, has not spread, is huge and I need surgery
March 31st is the big day
in the meantime I sleep a lot.
