Tomorrow, I go in for pre-surgery bloodwork and an information session, head to Cosmopolis for the long weekend, and then I have my hysterectomy on Tuesday afternoon. I've been nothing but whiny when writing about this cancer thing, so I thought that I should write something positive before I am freed from this journey through cancerland. Nothing sucks completely.
Even if I were to be run over by a lawn mower, I am sure that the newly cut grass would still smell sweet.
