Crazy sexy cancer surgery


Yeah, so, goodbye, Lefty. You’ve been a great breast friend, but I think it’s time we parted ways, because you’re killin’ me. Literally.

My mastectomy and reconstruction surgeries are first thing in the morning, so by this time tomorrow I will be missing my left boob as I currently know her. “Time for a little nip tuck,” as mighty, mighty good man David says. He also likes to talk about me getting a job at Hooter or posing for Jug magazine.

We think cancer is hilarious in this apartment. Still, I’m a little bummed tonight. It’s sad to have a part of me removed. I looked in the mirror this morning when I got out of the shower and thought, “I wish I could save you, Lefty, but you have betrayed me. Now I have to cut you off and save myself.”

I feel like there’s still a little bit of good in her, but sadly, most of her is evil cancer, so the good part must be sacrificed. Sorry, Lefty, you have to take a hit for the team.

In honor of Lefty, today at work I was rockin’ my Crazy Sexy Cancer T-shirt.


Crazy sexy cancer, indeed

Crazy sexy cancer, indeed


More than the surgery itself and the extended recovery process, I’m scared that I will wake up from the surgery tomorrow and the doctor will tell me that the cancer has spread; that more surgeries and chemo are in my future. I believe that will not happen. Even the doctors are optimistic that is not the case. Still, it lingers in the back of mind.

I know that when I wake up in the recovery room tomorrow I will immediately ask two things:

1) Can I have my glasses, please?

2) Did it spread?

I’m hoping the answers will be yes and no, in that order.

Once again, I am asking for your positive thoughts, your good vibes and your prayers! Also, just like last time, David will be Twittering throughout the day, updating followers with my progress, at Soniasboob.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
