Eve of Battle

Tomorrow I start the Taxol chemotherapy.

My specific prayer is that this battle I was so frightened to take on accomplishes shrinking down this tumor smaller and smaller for a successful lumpectomy in the not to distant future.

Having now pulled strength from God and His Son Christ who died for even me, and knowing the love from so many of my immediate and extended family's prayers, best and good friends' prayers and positive thoughts, victory over breast cancer is and shall be my outcome.

Please keep praying, y'all. I feel all of them.

Oncologist Tomorrow

Will find out chemo schedule. Twelve weeks of Hell already on the calendar. Stay tuned for specific day for systemic ruination of my immune system, which was half ruined already.

Half Sick of Shadows Already

John W Waterhouse is undoubtedly my favorite of all of the Pre-Raphaelite artists. This piece is "Half Sick Of Shadows, The Lady of Shalott," painted in 1888. The scene was inspired by Alfred Lord Tennyson's Victorian ballad of the same name, written in 1833. 

Her story told by Tennyson is beautiful, yet bitter-sweet, ranging with emotions most can relate to. At the time of this posting, I was doing that very thing: Reflection. 

Waterhouse painted many oils from the Ballad's stanzas. This is just one of them.
