An explanation...

Why Foob? I had a double mastectomy, and at the time, the plastic surgeon put "expanders" under the muscles in my chest. Every 2-3 weeks, they were filled with more saline, in preparation for my reconstructive surgery. They were very full and hard. Uncomfortable. One time, one of my sons gave me a hug and then said "Your foobs are hard!" Hee, hee, hee! My kids have this endearing habit of combining words. So, "Foobs" are fake boobs. Which I will still have, even after the reconstruction.

Foob Babe - that would be me!

"I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains."

I just found this quote by Anne Frank. Keep in mind, I'm not comparing cancer to the holocaust - this quote just really touched me. It made me think of everything that I've been through - the misery - and that even though my body is different physically, the beauty - what I truly am inside - remains.

  1. And even though we have cancer we have the beauty of each moment of life and being able to savor family, friends, home, etc. Anne Frank was one of those beautiful people.
