Thread: OK THIS IS MY 999TH POST AND WANTED TO SAY TO ALL MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS......

mrsyankweed - 8/1/2008 at 06:13 PM

OK, THIS IS MY 999TH POST, SO AM I GONNA MAKE IT SHORT, AND SWEET...
FIRST OF ALL, I WANTED TO THANK ALL MY BRO'S AND SISTAS, FOR ALL THE POSITIVE VIBES THAT RICHIE AND I HAVE BEEN RECEIVING.

AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, ABOUT A MONTH AGO, I WENT TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM, BECAUSE, I HAD A TIGHTNESS ON MY CHEST.. I THOUGHT BECAUSE, I HAD LIFTED TWO CASES OF BOTTLED WATER THE DAY BEFORE, I HAD STRAINED SOMETHING...
WELL, AFTER AN X-RAY, AND A CAT SCAN, I WAS TOLD I HAD A TUMOR RIGHT ABOVE MY HEART..10 CENTIMETERS.. ABOUT 4 INCHES..AND THEY SAID IT WAS "LARGE"

NOW, FOR UPDATES ON MY HEALTH, ORIGINALLY, I WAS TOLD I HAD A RARE TUMOR, THAT WOULD BE OPERATED ON...WELL, I WENT TO SEEK A SECOND OPINION, AND WAS TOLD TO HAVE A DEEP CORE BIOPSY DONE. LAST WEDNESDAY, I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH HODGKINS, STAGE 2A. WHICH HAS A 98 PERCENT CURE RATE... I UNDERWENT MY FIRST CHEMO TREATMENT ONE WEEK AGO. THE ONLY SIDE EFFECT WAS BEING TIRED, AND HAVING A HEADACHE.. APPETITE INCREDIBLE..

RICHIE AND I JUST WANTED TO THANK EVERYONE ON THIS SITE FOR THE AMAZING, UPLIFTING, GENUINELY SINCERE VIBES THAT WE HAVE BEEN RECEIVING... IT'S JUST SO NICE TO HAVE PEOPLE AROUND YOU IN YOUR LIFE THAT GENERATE THIS KIND OF A FEELING.. YOU ARE ALL SUCH A GREAT BUNCH OF PEOPLE,RICHIE AND I WANNA THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS... YOU ARE GREAT, CARING, KIND PEOPLE, THAT YOU JUST DON'T FIND EVERYDAY...SO THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN, AND WE ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE MET SO MANY OF YOU, LOOKING FORWARD TO MANY MORE TIMES TO MEET AGAIN...

P.S. RICHIE, YOU MEAN THE WORLD TO ME, THANKS FOR GETTING ME THROUGH THIS!!! I LOVE YOU BABY!!! RATDOG AND ABB JONES BEACH...HERE WE COME!!!

LOVE AND KISSES FROM THE MISSES
XOXOXOXOXO

Cindy - glad to read your and uplifting post. You are going to be just fine with that positive attitude and the support system you have. Good to hear that you are not getting the butt kicked too hard with the meds! Stay strong and well and hope you enjoyed that Return to Forever show the other night!


alanwoods - 8/1/2008 at 06:17 PM

Keep the attitude. It helps as much as anything to generate you own good vibes. Good Vibes from the family that you know and don't know.


Haisija - 8/1/2008 at 06:18 PM

As someone else around here reminds us constantly...Know that you are loved.

I'm so glad you went for the second opinion!

Hang in there, girl

I'll see you again at Wanee in '09, if not before.
