As I watched my son being strapped into his Manual wheel chair...I said to myself silently;"My son is a Paraplegic..I'm about to loose both breasts...I'm still hell bent on calling God and giving him this good news!". Then I burst into tears and I heard the Nurse's voice;"Ma,the last thing Emmanuel needs right now is Pity.Let's help him love himself and get through this period!"...I looked at the nurse and quickly imagined how perfect her life wud be..Young,Beautifull,Two firm boobs devoid of cancer,No paralysed son,A perfect love life!...then I screamed at her;"His name is no longer Emmanuel,I'm not sure God is with us!"...Emmanuel wiped his face with the back of his hand as the nurse adjusted his leg bag and wheeled him out the room...did I hear that nurse say "Pyscho"?no.I must have mis- heard. I can't help myself,how on earth can I help this little boy adjust to his new life that consists of ;Not being able to walk,Not being able to pass urine and empty bowels except with the use of a catheter and whole lot more! And look at me;I'm dying and I will if I don't get my two breasts cut off,M son's father calls me psycho,the love of my life;my only son is now going to be on a wheel chair for the rest of his life! ..hot tears again...lump threatning...teeths gnashing...fingers grabbing a cell phone...brain calling God! "Hello?...If you have made your decision,then let's discuss it not through the phone,pls"...oh,God...Ow else can I discuss with you?...then I quickly replied screaming"I'm changing my son's name frm Emmanuel!You are nt with us!" ...and I ws breathing so fast until he replied and said..."Calm down,ma.This is that obsessive disorder that comes with anger and fury...breathe in"...then I realized I had just called my surgeon,doctor,therapist,counsellor....he's almost evrything only he can't be my son and my breasts..but at least there some1 who doesn't think I'm a psycho!!!
