1945 ..... ?????

KAZ - January 2010.
(KAZ = 0 CANCER = 1 )
Booooo!

You'll never know how much all those comments meant to me - You are so wonderful and I even love a few of you.

I'm too weak to blog but I can manage a Tweet



Bluntly -
  • Ovarian cancer diagnosed JAN
  • Chemotherapy went wrong
  • MRI (emergency ambulance) for a month.
  • Didn't eat at all for weeks
  • Now refusing any more treatment.
  • Still bedridden but now eating so found a bit of energy.
I'll tweet again.
KAZ

Joanna Lumley - eat your heart out! What a funky do!

Fuck cancer indeed. Let's all ask the cosmos to 'Fuck Kaz's cancer' at 10pm tonight and see if the power of thought can help.

If it worked for Noel Edmonds to get a hit show aka 'Deal Or No Deal', why shouldn't it do something for you?

So sorry to hear you've had such an appalling ordeal on top of the scary news. And to think they all swear the hippocratic oath of 'First Do No Harm' when they qualify!

Big hugs from me. Your blog has been an inspiration and will I hope continue to be for a long, long time. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

PS: Have just been reading a book about angels that a friend made me read.

Apparently there are a lot of redundant angels out there 'cos not enough people believe in them to ask them for help with stuff.

So they could probably stretch to a squad for you right now!

So sorry to hear the bad news. Why is it that bad things always happen to the nicest people?

I read your blog but I'm one of the silent majority that never comment. I wish I had now.

You've got to fight it, KAZ, as cancer has taken too many already.

Blogger Milady de Languor said...

Greetings from across the pond, Kaz. I've lurked over here a bit in the past, but am here today 'cause Savannah sent me. I'm truly sorry that you've been going through such an ordeal, and salute your immense courage. I've not dealt with cancer myself, but I'm an ex-nurse, so have witnessed plenty of battles. The fight itself is certainly not for wimps, but the decision to cease treatment is hugely courageous and worthy of boatloads of sincere respect. All of the positive vibes that I can muster are winging their way to you today from windy Winnipeg.

Some people will do simply ANYTHING to have a bit of a lay down, won't they?

Much love and many hugs, as ever.

Do know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

You don't know me from the proverbial Adam missus, but you are a friend of Sav's and therefore a friend of mine! Cancer & chemo are old friends of mine, so I wish you hearty hugs, heartfelt humour and most of all my heart! I mean that missus! :¬)

Kaz, I found the news from MJ. I came here to say that you are an incredible individual and a smart and beautiful person on the inside and out. I've always enjoyed reading your posts and your comments over at MJ and other places we share on the internet.

I wish you so much strength and serenity. I wish you much love and good health. I really do believe that you can recover and return to to us stronger and better than ever. I have faith you'll soon find your way to enjoy sunny Spain again.

Take Very Good Care of Yourself, Kaz. I want you to know that though we can't be there for you physically to hold your hand and give you a hug, you are in our thoughts and in our hearts. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and sending you good vibes and best wishes and much love.

Ah, shit, Kaz... I'm so sorry to hear this... I have unending respect for your decision and offer you all the love, hugs, support and nursey healing vibes I can. You're a beautiful woman, inside and out. I'm pleased to hear you're eating a bit more and gaining a bit of strength. Guess I'll have to get back on twitter to hear from you. xoxoxoxo

I know you only from comments on other blogs, you are like the glamorous woman at the other end of my local's bar who I've been too shy to speak to so far, but for this I must say: FUCK. And add to the collective good thoughts and best wishes.

I don't know what to say. I knew it had to be serious, or you wouldn't have gone MIA for so long.

You've been my blog mate pretty much since I started and I'm gutted at your news.

Well, we got MJ back. 'They' said collective action doesn't work anymore. 'They' can shove it.

I'm sending you positive vibes, a crate of white wine and a tub of olives.

But not much to report yet.

PS Kaz...don't you just hate it when two visitors sit by your bed eating your grapes and talking about you in the third person? You hang in there chuck.

10:31 am  
Blogger Roses said...

Thanks for that Rog, now stalking you both.

Hey, be fair. I bought grapes in the form of white wine, far more palatable and I don't touch the stuff, so I might as well, much through Kaz's. If I can see them through this forest of flowers and balloons.

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments and e mails. It's so great to know that you're out there.
Particular thanks to Rog, MJ and Savannah who linked to the post. I met new bloggers and even Old Knudsen.
I'm looking forward to picking up those kisses from Geoff and Richard.
Special appreciation to those who didn't give up on me in the comments after 'PAXO'.

I’d like to remind you of a poem I wrote for you once upon a time…

A good time gal from northern Blighty
Table dances in her nightie
She loves her vodka, she's a lush
Her antics make the punters blush


And this poem you wrote for me…

I'd like to thank my pal emjay
For greetings on my special day
For lunch it's vodka down the pub
Then pole dancing at the 'Obsessions club'


May you heal soon so we can meet down at the pub and the club again.

Cancer makes me want to see it outside and punch its light out on your behalf. And I would you know, if you'd hold my coat.
I do hope a bit of something you can eat, and rest, basking in the love of all these witty people who think you are the bees knees, help you feel a little better.
Big smacking kiss on the side of the face.
