Yo Ho Yo Ho

I will warn you, the faint of heart, or if this is one of the occasional visits to my blog by Son number one or two.  You may not want to read this one about Mommy.

I had my gynecology visit today, couple different reasons, get my pap smear, routine check under the hood, and just make sure everything's ok down under.

Muffy aka va-jayjay just hasn't felt all sugar and spice and everything nice since chemo.  Nothing huge.  Not like a yeast infection or a bladder infection.  Just a little sumpthin sumpthin, a little giddy missing out of my giddy-up.

So I bravely did my duty today, saddled up, feet in the stirrups, and held on to the pillow under my head in case the horsey bucked.  Wasn't so bad.  Hell, not with what I've been through.

Turns out Muffy indeed does have a little cold, so to speak.  Ever heard of bacterial vaginosis?  Not to be confused with delusion halitosis.  Hey, you try finding something that rhymes with vaginosis!  Anyway, bacterial vaginosis is the most common of vaginal infections, caused by an overgrowth of bacteria normally residing in the vagina.  Too many cheerleaders at the party.  I guess it can be common during and after chemo, when blood counts of the good bacteria get low.

Let me break it down for you.  After the flora and the fauna in my lovely muffy meadow were NAPALMED, the pirates looted the place.

In order to restore my treasure, I was given a prescription antibiotic cream to use nightly at bedtime for seven nights.  The wonder cream inhibits bacterial growth and returns peace to the kingdom.

So there you have it.

Just one more damn reason added to the million and three reasons not to get breast cancer.

One million and four.

That's so irritating :( I'm sorry that that has to happen.
Is it part of the journey to health? Like, it's just another way that your body is trying to go back to homeostasis?

Hell little mermaid, I hope my body is returning back to homeo sumpthin, as long as it's not homeo cancer. Thanks for coming here and putting shells and pearls on me. wgd

Valentines Comment of The Day, by M1 aka slurpee, sending my vajayjay a get well message "Hey.... have a wonderous Valentines Day with your Hubby/Family!!! I hope things are going better for you with your vjayjay and whatnot, but even if it's not, I don't think that's what the V in V-day is all about anyway. ;-) It's just about love. And it seems you've got the corner on that market 365 days a year." That for the record Folks, is the first get well wish out of nine months of cancer treatment for my vajayjay! I love it!!!!!!!! Love you slurpee. wgd
