December Update


I’m enjoying my break from chemo
and my blood counts have improved.
CT scans show tumors are stable, but
I want them completely removed!

Reciting, singing, volunteering,
are what I continue to do,
gardening, when energy permits,
baking and entertaining too.

No pity party for this gal,
that wouldn’t help me to heal.
I don’t dwell on side effects either
which improves the way I feel.

Creativity is endless,
I still write a poem every day.
Yes, I still have challenges
but I envision them going away.

I am not my diagnosis
nor an “average” statistic,
I’m on a healing journey from cancer
which, for me, is realistic.

Have a wonder-filled Christmas Season
