No, I have not been discomboobulated yet!

Yes, I know that word only has one “o” but in my case I think it should be a double. FINALLY, two weeks from today, I will be at MD Anderson in Houston, finding out the fate of said boobies.

I say “boobies” because where one goest, I think the other should goest. After all, they are a matched set, unlike my daughter’s whose set doesn’t match at all. I’m not giving away secrets here. To see the disparity, one only has to look at her — when she’s naked, which hardly counts at all since she is a workaholic, doesn’t date, and isn’t married. I mean, the girl is hardly ever naked nowadays, even though she works from home and could be naked 24/7 if she wanted to be. [This paragraph is a test for my daughter to see if she REALLY reads The Texas Woman!]

Anyway, I don’t want to have to go through life trying to keep my chest level or equally poufed. I’m too old for vanity, too young for cancer, which reminds me of my cousin Janice who says she's too light for heavy housework and too heavy for light housework. I always liked Janice. I should keep in touch more often.

I won’t miss my C cups at all. At least that’s how I feel right now. I might feel different when I wake up with nothing. Nada. Zip.

I have been busy while waiting to be summoned to The Big C Hospital. M-I-L has been critically ill…twice. We’re talking with Hospice today to put in motion her next steps through life. Such sadness and, between her situation and mine, such pressure on my poor husband. Thank God for his strong shoulders and loving heart.


  1. I can understand wanting to keep them evenly paired. This coming from a guy who has to keep all his bills facing forward in his wallet and in exact order by denomination. So, yeah, I "get" that need for a sense of order and balance.

    Praying for you, your M-I-L and IT Guy.

  2. Still in my thoughts & prayers! Thanks for the update!

  3. I'm thinking of you, but I'd do both too. Not worth it to keep 'em both poofed

  4. We all know you are more than just a little throwed off, so why be off balanced too?
    I'm keeping you in my prayers and I'll add your MIL. Hospice is wonderful organization. I'm willing to bet you are already as familiar with their work as I am.
    Watch that sweet man of yours. Thank God for loving husbands with broad shoulders! Every woman should be so lucky.

  5. With an outlook like yours , you could cure the world! I love it!

  6. Hey, breast friend! It is so good to hear from you! I have been thinking of you and praying for you. I am so pleased that your sense of humor still reigns supreme! All I can say is do what you gotta do and get on with life. You keep us informed, okay? I am still available for whatever you need! We can even watch The Young and Breastless together! :)


  7. Glad you can still laugh while keeping all the balls (or should I say breasts) in the air. Things will work out, just a day at a time girl! Your in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong, okay?

  8. I love this post! I was "dicomboobulated" a few years back and, oh the pleasures of going bra-less! For almost a year, I had one, but not the other. I looked like I was in a constant state of winking (with my chest) So, the other had to go- plus I'm a Libra (hey, see the "bra"??) and I must be balanced. So, not to worry -with all the money saved on bras, you will have so much fun!!!

  9. You are still funny even in the middle of all you are going through. That's what I like about you, you have a smile and still add humor to it. I'm praying all will go well for you!

  10. Just keep your options open, know what I mean?

    Also and too bless your heart and IT> Like you don't have enough on your plate. I'll keep you in my prayers and meditations.

    Also and tutu - Did she read it?

  11. What comes to mind is how glad I am that you are a TEXAS WOMAN.

    What comes to mind next is I have two daughters who work and play hard and are not dating.What's wrong with guys today?

    Let's have a raffle!


    I will deny I wrote this if they ever find out!

  12. Oh my, can you pile any more on your plate woman? Hubby must be a gem. Boys have hard times with losing moms though, so I will add IT Guy to my prayer list. Had a girlfriend who donated left breast to the cancer fund. She went 3 years until she couldn't stand it anymore and went and had the other majorly reduced. She said now it isn't as painful to sleep at night and always having trouble with clothes and uncomfort. She is so glad she just got rid of the other too... she says now she can move on... Best of luck with any and all your decisions and just remember they are YOUR DECISIONS... xo

  13. Morning, Glad to hear when and where you are going...will this just be a consultation?

    Your daughter should kill you.....

    Sorry about your MIL and Lori is right, mem have a hard time losing their mothers. Holler if I can help.


  14. Hey, I've been thinking about you! I've always found a sense of humor served me well during trying times. Make sure you keep a diary and document everything for your self. Keep us posted!


  15. i love your cousin Janice's quote. i think that will be what i will live by from now on... my family may not agree, but oh well!

  16. I am praying for friend was just diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I think at some point I will direct her to your blog. She needs support, she will be havong surgery next week then chemo after that. I am just sad for her. You have a wonderful spirit about you, you life others up with your wit!! Hugs, Janna

  17. Ok... where to begin....1/2 a cup size disparity is not the deformaty you describe; its the DD and DD1/2 thats intimidating. As for always or never NAKED... oh the humanity, you do remember your grandson is only 17 and still living at home. If I had my druthers, 'OFF WITH THE CLOTHES', after all like mother llike daughter.

    Keep the positive attitude! Like everything else... attitude is 98% of the game. We will get through this as a family and all be stronger for it.

    Your Only Daughter CodeWoman

  18. I'm sorry about your MIL. Your poor husband should reach 'sainthood' (is that a even a word? doubt it!) soon. Keeping your family in my prayers. Go easy on your daughter. You never know what pictures she may decide to post of you. :-)



Your opinion doesn't count, but I'd like to know what it is anyway! Please leave a comment!
