Mr. Spots marks the spot on my MRI

I have been diagnosed with breast cancer. November 19, 2004. The news came
over the phone, clean and simple. Not much more to know other than a tumor
exists and it has to be taken out to save my life. Saturday I had an MRI to determine the size of the mass. It was a long and tedious procedure. Dye was injected into my right arm while I lay face down, perfectly still, as the cool fluid made its way to the source. The room was cold and held nothing but the big mass of machinery that cupped me while the hum and whirl of perfection rotated around the sun of my being.

Mastectomy scheduled for Friday, December 3rd.
