Colleen's thoughts on writing, directing and coaching, and her unique take on life itself!

Today I'm undergoing surgery that is going to alter my life in such a great way: breast reconstruction and reduction.

It's ta ta to my ta-ta's!

After undergoing four operations on "Shirley" (right) to remove the cancer, she was much smaller than "LaVerne" (left). Following months of chemotherapy and radiation, the cancer was beaten out of my system - but Shirley shrank even more.

And neither started out unnoticed.

Let's put it this way: when I went jogging, my face took a beating when LaVerne and Shirley whipped back, smacking me with every step!

When I emerge this afternoon, the Girls will be small enough for me to run like the wind, do cartwheels, backflips and lie *flat* on my stomach!

I admit, it will be a new for me to start at ground level when I do push-ups. That was a decent "up" side to generous mammaries. I was already raised halfway to the "up."

I've lost quite a bit of weight, too, so when the surgery is complete, I'll have a different body than I did a year ago!

Two friends are taking me, staying through the surgery, bringing me home and staring at me this evening when I'm home to make sure there are no complications.

So, Beloved Reader, when next you check in on my blog, I'll be the new CP Lite!

In fact, after recovery, I'm going to feature current photos of me and me in action on my website!

Wish me *well!*

    Good luck on your surgery! I noticed mention of Shattered on your site, so I read through your postings. Interesting and very full life, filled with lots of great action. Hope all goes well today for you.
