Seeing Beyond the Bandaid

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

When I look in the mirror lately, all I see is the bandaid and the incision where the cancer was removed from inside my nose. I know that I need to see the rest of me. I know that I'm still a beautiful person even though there's a bandaid on my nose.
The cancer was removed on April 1 (no fooling!) and I've kept the incision clean and changed the bandaid several times a day. I've made sure to drink my water and get my rest. I stay away from crowds. I've been careful to change the bandaid when exercising outside.
Today is my first IEP meeting since 4/1. My face will be front and up close on Zoom. I'll be wearing makeup for the first time since adding a bandaid to my face.
It's time for me to see the beautiful and not the bandaid. My body is healthier with cancer gone. That is my focus!
