Because the Tea Party only allows rich, white, old men. Just ask Marco Rubio.

My wonderful friend D who was supposed to bring me lunch yesterday (plans changed) came by early this morning and took me out for breakfast at Perkins! How nice was that? I couldn't eat much, but it was delicious. Then I came home (9-ish) and immediately went back to bed, as friend was texting me at freakin' 6 a.m. about breakfast.(His girlfriend has to work at 4 or 5 a.m.)

Biscuits and gravy. Yum.

Don't worry folks, I'm not going to turn this page/site into Angela Cancer Central. I started a caring bridge page last night to get ready (so FB doesn't get icky).

Not definitively. But the paperwork says "Probable carcinoma." I'm expecting the worst but hoping for the best.

I won't expect to know anything until Wednesday, and I expect I'll feel too lousy to be online tomorrow night after having my lungs drained and going under general anesthesia, so I'd be surprised if you heard from me tomorrow night.

One friend on FB the other night posted about not having a salad spinner and some other items and made some joke about it. Well, I already have a will started (long ago) and today, I added "Salad Spinner: Taya" to the list! That cracks me up!

They're wrong, Angela. You'll see. It's some dumb tech's thumbprint.

Pneumonia -- okay. I can see that.

After my chest xrays, I texted my friend: "I can tell from my xray that one boob is bigger and hangs a little lower than the other," and she responded with "Is Jimmy Hoffa hidden under there?"

Well, it's official. Bears suck. Oh, I'll still watch them all season. My punishment for living in the Chicago area. As if the cold, snow and ice wasn't enough.

Damn non-existent offensive line.

Hey...How good are the Colts, eh? I'm loving watching Peyton Manning carve up America's team, and in Dallas...even better.....lol...

I haven't finalized it yet-- just set it up to keep myself occupied, and it was a concrete way to not crap all over FB.

But I will post it here!

True story.

My ex-husbands 2nd wife ( previously a good friend of mine as well) was a long time smoker. She had a bout of pneumonia which was not responding well to drugs so they took a chest x-ray and found some shit on her lung. That turned out to be a lucky break because the doctors caugt it early enough to effectively treat her. I heard the story perhaps 3 years ago and it was not real new at the time. As far as I know she is still around. Her LinkedIn account is still current and showing her working.

How is your Mom taking this?

Just caught up....sorry, Angela.
Hope it's all stupid and easily fixed!

I had a suspicious liver lesion that was an anomaly--they happen. If not, hope they caught it early and you beat this mother!

Good point, chel!

PE: I think my mom is a wreck because having nursed my dad through his cancer and now her boyfriend, she knows what her kid is in for if it's cancer. She texted me that she was thinking of me every minute.

I feel like shit tonight and I made her brownies with walnuts I toasted. Is that insane or waht? I've swept up cat hair, picked up, etc., so she doesn't see how bad I've let the place go in the last two weeks when i've been sick.
