51. The Mimosa Lady

Tuesday was busy at Texas Oncology.

Two ladies ended their chemo

with confetti and bell ringing.

Another lady

threw herself a party, complete with mimosas,

right there in the infusion room.


She said she’d never had a break from chemo,

and now she’s Stage 4, so she’s breaking out

the champagne and orange juice.

Mom called out, “I’m Stage 4!”


“Then have a mimosa!”

the lady shouted back.


Mom shook her head. “I’m can’t.

I’m still fighting.”


The woman shook her head right back

and said, “I’m dancing!”

Go right ahead.
