Yup, it's true, she could use a little lovin'...

Dear All,
Robyn commented on my blog today and I've included it in this post because I don't want you to miss it. As most, or all of you know, she's going through a very rough period because her thyroid cancer has returned. Now that she's decided to make it public, I feel relieved we can finally discuss it openly and hopefully other dear friends will have words of wisdom and support for our darling Robyn. She's a remarkable, tough lady and we all love her, so let's give the biggest group hug to an amazing lady, and one of the most crazy-ass waitresses to ever step foot in Brian's Cafe (the other of course, Gig!)!!!. Robyn, that sexy little number you strutted your stuff in is still hanging on the bathroom door at the Wild Onion!!! We all love you beautiful and await your return. Hang in there baby.

What do my eyes spy...all the awards that bloggers have bestowed on my friend Suze!Suze!
Life has thrown me a loop and today like most I feel as if I can barely keep my head above the water line. The news on my situation keeps getting worse by the minute. No a tumor, yes a tumer. AAGHGHH! I have had more blood taken then you can imagine. I have done all types of xray machines. Full body scan,pet scan, WBC scan, Bone scan, Cat scan, chest xray, head CT...and the list goes on and on and on. Has it spread, where is it...what are we going to do! Chemo, no radiation, no back to chemo, surgery. I now step back and hold the gun to my temple...yesterday was that day. ENOUGH ALREADY!Suze, I will get most of my results Monday. I think some type of surgery will be in order and then probably both chemo and radiation will need to take place. Am I scared??? Shit yes...will I survive! HELL YES! I am not taking any of this sitting down. I am too much of a fighter to let this do me in...but there are days Suze...where enough is enough, you know what I mean?! I am sorry I haven't blogged or changed the current posting. It just seemed pointless a bit. With me fighting this battle and trying to be strong for others, I have been exhausted. I promise, and let everyone know that I will email them all back soon! I just needed to do all the tests and rest and find a anger outlet...KICK BOXING! And need the results so I can let my friends and family know what the hell I am up against! I love you dear one! And soon, very soon I will email you.Give my love to everyone! And here are some extra hugs for everyone. Talk soon! Promise!Love you!

The clock on my computer says it's 1:57. I woke up a while ago and can't get back to sleep. Damn menopause. Damn her.

All the cats got up with me and behaved as usual. Carnival time in Vegas. I've realized they're all such a spoiled rotten group of hooligans just out to impress me. Then T-Bone got up and went out for a pee. I told him to hurry because of the skunk (yup, feed her too!). He listened. Now I'm here for one reason and one reason only. To get everyone to settle down. It always works. Why? Who knows, but it does. I sit, they sit. Robyn won't mind. Right baby?

So nice to see the three of you here. Gig, especially nice to see you over here. We miss you terribly. IV's birthday's next week and the joints going to be jumpin', so you may have to put your apron back on because you know Jorge isn't going to lift a finger. I love that man. Oh, and there's the birthday boy sitting on the sofa in all his glory. For God sakes man, can you put a towel down and can you cover that tatoo with something before I have to come and admire it? And there's Leah out dancin' with Severus. My how she loves that boy toy. Okay, everything normal.

I was hoping that Robyn's personal issue wasn't this. I'm here. count me in too.

Best wishes dear,


Suzanne said...

Robyn, just be you and put it out there and help will arrive. You are so loved. Just reading this blog makes me smile, and it's just the 4 of us!!! Allow everyone in and let them help you get through this. Please blog about this because just as posting photos brought overwhelming joy, this will too. You have an amazing group of friends just waiting to support you.

Love you.

You have to take one day at a time and live like there is no tomorrow, because none of us really ever know for sure what tomorrow will bring. You just need to realize that you have a very large, strong network of friends that you can rely on for strength, love, and support. Screw the job,if you can. Get on temporary disability while you are fighting this. There is no need to add extra stress to you life. This black hearted disease is stress enough. Go to where Jim is and be with him every day. Lean on him for the support that I know he so desparately wants to give you. Simplify your life, who give a damn about your credit, the bills, ect. All of that is material. Life isn't. Just know, Robyn, that we are here. You have my number, call me if you need someone to talk to. We love you dear.

And Suze, we love you too. Thanks for posting this. It is a fabulous post.
Gig, Leah, IV, Skeeter. It is so nice to see all of you here. You are all such wonderful people.

Skeeter, how's the arm doing?

I.V. how's the beer doing?
Gig, how's the gk's doing?
Leah, how's the S&M with Snape going?


Now, I am still suffering from a damn headache, so I'm going to go lie down. Have a great day everyone.

Robyn said...

LOL! Well I come here to get on with some type of party and what do I find! I big ol' photo of moi!

Well...I am overwhelmed! Thank you all for being here for me. I have had some fantastic news through all the crazyiness that I had just gone through.

This is whats up...Yes! Confirmed I have thyroid cancer and it has spread to my parathyroid and left lung. BUT! The cancer is not in tumor form only cell form! As Cecile will tell you that is FANTASTIC! It is easier to treat. And with that being said, my 'cancer crew' have decided on Pin-Point Radiation or Radiation. It is where I will have a beam of radiation target those specific cells(areas) once a week. For a I think 12 weeks.

Side effects: Redness like a bad sunburn, being tired.

My feelings: OVERJOYED! Yes, who could think that someone could be overjoyed with having cancer...well aleast this type of cancer. I will take cell form over tumor form any day!

I am not out of the woods quite yet but at least I am on my way out of them!

Thank you again for you all encouraging me. I can't tell you enough how much you all mean to me. Each of you are very special. I hold you all very dear in my heart!
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!
