Well it has been a week that is for sure. Thank you all for checking in and for the prayers it means alot.

I am going to get up on my soap box for a minute here and tell all my female readers that your health is something that is very important most of us are mommas, wives, sisters & daughters we tend to put ourselves last.

You need to know that can be a very dangerous thing. My friend Toni who passed away was diagnosed and died from cancer all within 15 days.

Can you imagine that 15 days....there were some warning signs like the serious weight loss and you all know that after 25 losing weight is like chiseling concrete off your ass that fat just wants to hang out and spend its golden years with your butt cheeks. Toni lost almost a 100 lbs in a year doing NOTHING....ladies it may sound like a miracle but it is not. She also complained of no appetite and abdominal pain all something we experience but if it lasts longer than a week or so go see your doctor.

Toni's pathology reports came back on monday during the palliative care conference and the results were unbelieveable. The specemins were sent to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and came back she had 3 different kinds of cancer. 3 KINDS!!! 2 different types of Ovarian and Pancreatic Cancer.

God Speed Sexy Mama I will miss you

*You see the chin tilt that was her thing doesn't she look proud?

I guess God had big plans for her and was hedging his bets. I do not know what else to think

Wow! 15 days. I agree with you. We have to listen to our bodies when they tell us something is not right.

She does look very proud.

Both of my parents died of cancer. I've had a scare myself not too long ago. I actually have to go for a re-check next month.

Geeezus Melissa,

I'm sorry girl, truly. Cancer is so non discriminatory and it seems to pick on people we love most.

My sincerest apologies to you and everyone who knew her.
