My boobs were recalled while I was breastfeeding. And you can bet I lost a lot of sleep over how many cancer cells my baby ingested from breastfeeding before I knew I had cancer.

It’s been less than a week since I became a mother.  As you might guess, my time is spent a little differently now: feeding baby, changing diapers, doing laundry, trying to remember to feed me, quick naps…  but most of my time is spent staring…

I see the smile in your eyes
when you see my belly
strangers fall over themselves to get the door
my husband holds my hand as we cross the street
then doesn’t let go
