Circle of Friends Hydrangeas by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Circle of Friends Hydrangeas is a new painting drying in Flower Mound Studio. It is dedicated to everyone who has sent notes of support and thoughts of strength and good wishes for my breast biopsy tomorrow.

My procedure is just a little blip on the radar of what many of you have been through, some of you multiple times. I am embarrassed to think how frightened I am, but I am also absolutely certain I will be fine. I will not shriek when they stick the needle in. I will not run screaming from the room when they start laying out the giant syringes on the metal tray next to my left ear. (Can you tell my imagination has been running away with me?) And I will stop kicking myself for choosing the procedure sans anesthesia.

I am going to be brave! It didn't help, though, when the surgeon's nurse called today and after asking me if I had suffered any major traumatic injuries this year such as being struck by a car, she followed up by asking me which breast they would be operating on tomorrow. I pretended I didn't know, because I wanted to be sure she looked it up. If they start prepping the wrong breast, however, I am out of there. Please think positive thoughts for your wimpy friend. And while I'm counting down the minutes, I've added a funny photo below. We all need to laugh sometimes, yes?

A peek at the studio models in situ...

Nancy. I didn't know. I'm going to hit my knees hard. Sending you prayers and wishes and sloppy pug kisses from Paco. Of COURSE you're frightened. I have Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book. I think every woman should have it.

I HATE the whole biopsy/waiting/scary stuff. My heart is with you.

Such beautiful flowers and love the splash of the pink hydrangea. I know that today is your procedure and my thoughts, my prayers, and my heart are with you this day. I've had cysts drained via big strawlike needles in the boob before. They did do a local anasthetic and it helped immensely.

I started out a wimp, but the whole time I was there I was thinking about what each of you had to say. It really carried me. big hugs and so much gratitude and love coming your way! xo
