After the first finding, after the mystical peering inward, after the cool knives and the fierce hot chemicals and the waiting, after the gathering of friends and family, after the bearing of the weight of loss, after dark-thirty in the morning, comes a great shining. 

I got the best number on the Cancer Bingo card. B-9! What great news for a Valentine. A clear mammogram is a big thrill.

Great day in the morning.

OK, now all that’s left is seven weeks of radiation. Piece of cake. Chocolate frosting.
