A Humorous Look at the Bright Side of Cancer... and There Is One

Yes, I’m Wearing Lipstick To My Mastectomy

No, I haven’t had anything to eat since 10:30 last night, nothing to drink (including Vodka) since 11:00, I haven’t shaved for two days, I refrained putting on deodorant this morning, I’m not wearing a bra, wrote “NOT THIS ONE” on my good breast, left my jewelry off, leaving my purse home, have no perfume on, have a zipper-jacket on… let’s see, what else did the doctors and nurses say to prepare for this momentous occasion?

I was walking into the kitchen trying to remember everything and thought, “Hey, they never said I couldn’t wear lipstick.”

Not two seconds later, my youngest son, Jonathan, gave me a hug, and then, out of all the things he could have said, asked, “Mommy, are you going to wear lipstick?”

Yep. Jane Iredale hot pink: Renee.

  1. You go, girl. Everything’s better with hot lipstick! Love that you remembered the magic marker on “the good one”. Thought about you at work in between little girls with stomach flu and naughty little boys. Hope all went well and your family is taking good care of you! Blessings—-
