*this is mostly tongue in cheek(y). tom has been absolutely wonderful through this whole ordeal. but i couldn't resist a bit of a rib....;-)k

So, the doctors tell me
How grateful I should be
Lucky that I made it
I came thru swimmingly

At first, I thought it crazy
The pain so overwhelmed
That morphine didn't kill it
Just made me feel like hell

I had the sad, remorse's
Those thoughts of failure, too
But, my choices had been minimal
Not much more, that I could do

It's been an uphill battle
Yet, I think I won the fight
If I could just maintain my cool
From those flashes in the night

I now fall in that little niche
That Tom has worried cause
For I am thrust into the state
He hates...called menopause

Consigned to taking hormones
Or swing from mood to mood
Good grief! He should be happy
A ‘brand new woman' might be good

And if he doesn't like "that"
Just wait a little minute
I'm bound to change my attitude
And a new one may be in it

I know that I can hear him now
Oh yes, of me, he's fond
But grateful for the wide expanse
And safety ‘cross the pond

For me it's a ‘no brainer'
I think I'd rather live
For hot flashes of this type are best
Than the alternative

Reviewed by Sara Coslett 6/27/2003 have a delightful sense of humor. I bet Tom loved this one. Nothing like a good laugh to get you through the rough days.

You know I had completely forgotten about the morphine. Did it make you itch? I couldn't wait for them to take that stupid IV drip out of my hand.

Krissie, you know this poem took me right back there.

Keep taking it slow, don't do too much because you think you have to show everyone how strong you are. Just take all the time you can to recover.

Hope you are feeling better soon Krissy,the poem was funny but evoked your frustration of the symptoms,you poor thing,I hope they pass soon,you deserve to be well and happy always.
Why do they call it men oh pause?
why not women oh pause...?I think it's because you can never keep a good woman down let alone pause her for long...gals like you just bounce back you have too much spirit to pause,well, that's what I think anyway,keep keeping on mate and say 'hi' to that guy for me,I have not noticed his work here for a while,I miss his poetry round here.
Rest up and get better real soon.
Best wishes always

I know it has been very hard Lady Krissy. But you have done so well. Just take it easy a little longer. Don't work too much or too hard. Remember all your friends and take it easy. Bill

I'm so happy for you Krissy! You are just one tough lady. I'm so glad you are recovering well to write your poetry now. Tom has been great supporter for you, and I'm glad about this.

Good luck and take care!
