I feel like shite and it’s great!!!!

I got zapped by the big bug zapper. It was awesome. They discovered a brain metastasis. It was not awesome. I got a great prognosis of 95% chance of full recovery. It was awesome. I go back next week for results. I hate waiting. I am writing this from my phone. It is not so awesome. I got the coolest drawing ever from Dean at deanzdoodlezdeanzdoodlez

Needless to say: awesome.

I feel like complete shite. I’ve never felt better in my life!!!!

I love you guys! A few days to get back on my feet and I will be the neighbourhood terror once more. Thank you everyone for the love, support and well wishes. You mean the world to me.

  1. I didn’t realize the world of hurt you were in. I’m so grateful for the great prognosis. Ionia rules! Welcome back, dear lady. Now please rest!

      1. Only to my sanity. It’s a Q&A video for Youtube that another author suggested. Need questions and time/space to record. The book trailer is paused until I can find someone to put it together.

      2. It is, but I can handle it. Need to decide if I really want to put myself out there like that. I got time. I have a babbling shadow for the next 3 weeks, so I won’t be getting to it for a while. πŸ™‚

      3. No, silly. I follow you, so you can’t be my shadow. I mean the toddler that has taken to running like a ninja around the house and hiding in the ‘sewers’ aka under the couch. I think I created a TMNT fanatic.

      2. Holding on to all my blessings! I have made so many beautiful new friends here – I feel very complete. I am blessed. You’re particular cancer impacts me. I am therefore holding on to you VERY tightly and sending all sorts of positive energy your way. Look at you – ill, and thinking about everyone else. You are so easy to love and care for.

  2. This is so cool, girlfriend. I mean, not that you had a brain metastasis, but that they got it! We love Dean’s doodle of you too. You have never left the neighborhood BTW, and you are anything but a terror. You are a gracious, witty, charming, and butt/cancer kicking friend to so many of us. We love you.

      1. There are some cold places there in winter. I’m pretty fucked up in the head without it. And you have an even more legitimate excuse. You can now have license to blame everything crazy you do or say on the doctors.

  3. Glad to hear the news is mostly good. Although when I read brain metastasis I thought differently. Recuperate, get better and get back to doing what you do best.

      1. I’ve got three major short stories in mid-stream. The Lobbyist is one of them. I’ve started converting it to alternating narrators, but that’s it so far, while I pay a little bit of attention to the other two stories. My greatest regret these days is the incredibly small window of time I have each day to write and having to decide what to work on.

      2. I’ll make the cupcakes. What kind do you like? You see, when I retire — or better yet, win the lottery and get to quit working — one of my missions is to bake every day. Mostly I do breads (well, I don’t actually “do” breads, I bake them), but … oh, never mind. Anyway, cupcakes would fit quite nicely into the image I have of retirement/winning the lottery.

  5. I am so glad you’re smacking that shite with tuna! I lost Mom to cancer and so it’s especially hard for me to see it attack someone I know – it makes me angry, ANGRY I TELL YOU and I want to just take a Jaeger and blast the shite out of the shite and make it go AWAY!!

      1. I’ve always been able to ninja my way into fixing things – ANYTHING – and this was the one thing I COULDN’T fix. That was the worst part of the whole thing, not having the ability or power to DO anything, especially since my older sister had power of attorney and left me out of the loop entirely and ignored any efforts on my part to introduce new treatments. “She’s 75, it doesn’t matter” seemed to be her attitude and I still haven’t let that go it seems…..
