The Big Doozy


The big doozy.

Just going in for my hopefully last surgery for awhile. This is the one that includes a stay in what I am sure will be a luxury suite at Petaluma Valley Hospital.
For the first time since I got on this crazy cancer train I have some anxiety before surgery. I just keep thinking that my poor body has been through so much in the past 12 months. This will be my fifth major surgery in a year. Hoping that my creaky old body can handle this next one, the big doozy.
There is a huge reward for it if it decides to go along with the plan. Morphine. That is the gold medal at the end of this race.
My wonderful son Tommy is hanging out with me while we wait for them to wheel me back. He is resisting the urge to push buttons and turn dials on all the gadgets around here. Thanks Tom. Stay strong!
Alrighty, time to go to sleep. See you all later with my new improved boob and less ribs than I have now.


  1. Huge hugs, positive thoughts, prayers and mucho Auntie Power going your way from this Crazy Canadian friend of yours.
    Love and hugs………Judy

  2. Love you! It will go great! Hopefully the last surgery for a long, long while! Prayers are flying up your way from Southern Cal….

  3. The energy around you is all good Gen. We all look forward to this being the last of these surgeries. Lots and lots of “pringles” are headed to Petaluma. Good on Tommy for hangin’ with you and not messy with all the buttons. Love and hugs are with you Gen!

  4. You had every right to that anxiety. Just know there is so much love and prayers surrounding you today and always. My prayers are all the way from the far east in South Carolina they travel far and wide. Lots of love, gentle hugs, constant prayers.

  5. You’ll look just like Dolly Parton when you are done! All will go well and we’ll sneak in some bellinis for you to help pass the time. Sending jingles from our house.
