"TWoS" DaY: MY DiVa

My Diva
Three moles
are gone
from her
precious body.

Eleven stitches
that we
can see.

There're more
Under skin
can't count.

First one
I watched
Her scalp
Her tears
The shot.
The pain.

Held hands
Her pain.
Her eyes.
Why. Why?

Pulled Flesh
From scalp
I watched.
Why watch?

Calm, calm.
Be calm.

So much
Blood bled.
A piece
of her
came out.
Sewn up.

That was
Last Monday.

Then yesterday
Two more
were taken.

I didn't
choose to
watch then.

Instead I
held her
hands tight.

She cried
of course
again yes.

But not
so much
this time.

She knew
what to
wait for.

Brave girl
My daughter.

I slept
with her
last night
long time
in case
she needed
her mom.

Or maybe
It was
that I
needed her.

Oh I am so sorry that your family is going through this. My prayers are with you and Diva. Hope the results come back negative for any kind of ailment....Keep us informed! Sorry, you just broke my heart....couldn't do the twos today. I'm so sorry, Stephanie! *hugs*

Oh Andi, thanks! It probably sounds more traumatic than it was seeing as I could only describe it in two-word sentences! She is FINE today in fact, resting in front of the TV--I let her stay home from school--she probably could have gone! The scalp one already came back benign! We are good. Didn't mean to scare anyone! I guess it does come off sounding very dramatic! SORRY READERS AND FRIENDS! : )

I had to have one removed 2x by a plastic surgeon who only took cash or check and charged $500 for 15 minutes of work. Im 100% ok.

My mothers first response was "This is why I wanted you to be a Dr. so you can charge ridiculous amounts of money for a little bit of work." I would have settled for "Hi honey, how are you feeling?"

Mama Smurf said...

Dramatic or not it was very sweet and touching.

Your Diva
So Brave
So Tough
Oh Me
Oh My
You Should
Make Her
And You
A Pie!

Kirsten said...

I'm a dork, sorry. Pie was the only rhyming word I could come up with. You actually deserve wine, we all know how hard it is to watch our kids go through ANYTHING hard. I hope she is feeling better. :-)

Kate said...

I hope Diva continues to feel well and that everything comes back negative!

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Thanks everyone, and Kirsten, you're not a dork. Diva was here and laughed and said, "Mom, you don't know how to bake a pie!" Hahahah.

She's doing great, everyone. Thanks so much! xo
