Anniversary. Fibonacci 88.

Anniversary (April 14)

1    One  /
1     year /
2     ago today, /
3     the surgeon shot /
5    blue dye into my breast /
8     prior to removing a chunk of it and /
13   also two blue-dyed healthy lymph nodes. A nurse had both offered and recommended
21   Valium.  It was my first time to take it, and we got along famously.  I was amused by everything, especially the
34    race through the halls to surgery. I recently learned that after surgery they asked what I'd like to eat, and I replied, "Orange jello with whipped cream." (Where do such decisions come from?)  I offered a spoonful to Michael, a sweet act of generosity by a happy, heavily drugged fool.
