SIX MONTH FOLLOW UP – CANCER SURGEON

All good with Dr. Lim as well. Had a slight vertigo attack in exam room, but it was sparked by them adjusting the table. Still fine. I have no complications from the lymph nodes or the breasts. She, too, said it was one of the best outcomes she’s seen. She asked what my girlfriends thought and I realized I didn’t have any kind of celebratory whatever I’m supposed to have. I never showed anyone and just went about my business. Something about this made me sad and just highlighted how isolated I’ve become. I’m trying not to be pitiful, but I’m horribly depressed at times. Anyway, the cancer stuff looks good. I will go back again in six months.

Houston-based writer making contributions through truth- and story-telling. Sometimes dark, often insubordinate, and always raw, a balance is struck in each conclusion that evokes a sense of resolve to the absurd drama so intricately woven into our human experience. You will find short stories sometimes based in truth, true stories sometimes based in harsh reality, musings that may strike a nerve, writing prompts just for fun, and a novel or two in the works. Welcome, and thank you for reading. Christine Cadiz was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad in 1964. She was a kid in the Florida Keys and an adult in Miami. She's been writing since she was nine-years-old and was a Journalism major before quitting college to earn a living. Christine worked in marketing and advertising for seventeen years. She stayed in Florida for forty-three years before relocating to North Carolina and then Texas with her family. She is married and has three daughters and a dog. They currently reside in Houston.
