|Teal Ribbon : |
Meaning: This color is a symbol
for ovarian, cervical, and uterine
cancers as well as sexual assault,
polycystic ovarian syndrome,
and tsunami victims. What fun!
Let's back away from the edge of darkness for a moment, to look at the bright side of things. Just as modern medicine saved me once, I have very competent professionals on my side, and every reason to believe that I will emerge from this to live to see my daughter reach adulthood. She was more interested in the timing of my surgery (two days before Thanksgiving) than in any of the concerns that we adults have. "How many days are in November? November is a long ways away. What holiday comes first, Halloween or Thanksgiving?" And, then, she pushes her torso up on her shoulders (this was in bed) by standing on her tippy toes on the headboard and challenges me to push her down. She'll take anyone's mind off the heavy details.
