Sharing my secret

If you ever have a bone marrow biopsy make sure to sing. Don't wait until you are laying on the table worried. Don't wait until the needle starts poking to drill the bone. Start singing the moment you enter the room. When you are laid on the table, keep singing. As the doctor positions you on the procedure table, be singing. Front end load the procedure with song. Sing from beginning to end and eventually you will hear "all done." And, it will be. And, maybe you will laugh out loud because you won't believe it finished. Then and only then can you shake and cry and know you are through. It doesn't matter what you sing. Just carry a tune.
