And how is my girlfriend Susan Santsche doing tonight? She’s been on my mind.
July whatever! I don't wantto know… Dallas, Tx 201
Amazingly, last night we spent hours shooting video tape for a project I'm involved in, and to be fair, no, I haven't mentioned anything to you yet because I'm sort of living a quarterly life! I say this while today I'm sitting in the waiting room of my oncologists office. I sit and give new meaning to the words "waiting room!" As we're all aware, I'm not the most patient patient!
I figure, if I make it out alive this first quarter and they change my status to living a bi- monthly life instead…then I'll spill the beans on the video stream! Just know that there were a lot of clothes taken off and put on, a shadow box, lots of laughter and heels! Wow! That would make a great book title! "A Shadowbox, Laughter and Heels!" Oh My!
I'm sitting here being what I think is Entertaining, but please understand I'm truly scared to death. In fact I couldn't believe my blood pressure was 100 over 60 because I thought I was having a heart attack just from the anxiety of not knowing the outcome!
So, at least we know I can handle pressure, laugh and be entertaining while I'm a nervous wreck- but the favor I ask of You is to cross your fingers and if you were blessed with long toes, cross them too! I could use a stroke of luck! And of Course, this Doctor, my dear friend, saves me for last because I'm her favorite patient! So? I Wait!!!
Just in case you missed this: Tomorrow is the day I get both of my ports out!
I will finally be able to wear my dresses again! Next step- hair will grow back and no more hiding my Martina’s from my Doctor!

I've been chemo-free for two weeks now! I made a promise to you that if I beat Cancer's ass- I'd do a "happy dance!" (Make sure you click on the link, considering I almost put myself back in the hospital while doing this dance!)
I want to thank you for following my story of trying to win this battle, while at the same time taking the time to look out for yourselves, health-wise. Your support helped me to get here, and I adore you.

If you have been following my blog, you’ll know that 2 days ago I posted I was to go in today to have 4 chemo injections done in a 6 hour session. You know I have dreaded this- but they felt as I felt- I couldn’t handle the week to week any more. My body felt so filled up with chemo that I just knew I was the equivalent to being “Done!”
FOR ONCE- Something has gone MY WAY in this medical nightmare!!!
I woke up to a voice message from my Dr’s PA (no, that is not something you listen to music through! It stands for Physician’s Assistant, you radio/DJ nuts).
The message read like this: “Robin, I’ve sat and gone through your chart, took it tothe Dr, and she agrees: We Miscalculated! You have already completed 6 cycles of chemo- YOU ARE DONE!”
Picture me- in bed, listening to this message on the day that I felt would be the worst day of my life-… I sat straight up… literally threw the covers off and started jumping up and down!!!
I’M DONE!!!! I’m a SURVIVOR!!! You Helped me through- and I can’t Thank you enough for all the support that has come my way!!!
All this on the day before my birthday!!! WHAT A GIFT!!!! Holy Shit!!! Hey- I’m allowed to swear, it’s MY Birthday. Hmph!!!
This weekend I’m going to see my mom! 🙂 Finally….
The only bad news is, I’ve been choreographing my “happy dance” and figured I still had two weeks left- so I’m gonna’ have to wing it, which won’t be difficult since I’m pretty much dancing in my seat anyway!!! Be watching for my Youtube video! LOL!
I seriously don’t think I’ve ever written a piece and used so many exclamation points in my life. Improper, but who gives??
This is the best birthday gift I’ve ever received in my life.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes too, and NO- you’re not late! It’s tomorrow. My life begins again, today, said the Sugar Mom! …. <3
Love you all,
