GB Gets a Little Serious


No sexy time posts . No weird dating stories. No boob shots. The GB side of me is kind of on the back burner for today (though I guess I did manage to post a shot of 3 ladies in bed).


Out here in California, there are 4 of us girlfriends who are tighter than tight. This group includes me and my dear roommates, The Spaz and Tabbie. The fourth member is our wonderful friend, Leslie.


Today, Leslie is having an alien (aka tumor) removed from her abdomen (we've named it Gwyneth). And you thought my boobs were ginormous? Well, Gwyneth is the size of a CANTELOPE!!!


We found out a few weeks ago about the cancer and have been on pins and needles ever since. We are trying to stay positive, but today is very very scary.


The doctors aren't really sure what they are going to find when they go in there.


So please send some positive thoughts out to Leslie. And if you feel like leaving a drunk dial for me or sending a wacky email or picture, today would be the day to do it. Mama needs distractions and some big hearty laughs.

tracey said...

praying for leslie & hoping somehow the docs were wrong and gwyneth turns out to be some bad chinese take out. i just got an all clear from my doc for my cancer - if the news turns out to be less than encouraging, there's still hope.

Mister Underhill said...

usually, they larger the tumor the more certain it is to be benign. It's crazy how big it is, but she should be fine.

Mike said...

Head on over to my blog, and you'll see some ugly people.

Good for a hoot.

Also, sometimes large abdomen tumours come with teeth, hair, fingernails, etc.

Who knows, maybe Leslie will find some treasures to put on her mantle, to make a conversation piece for years to come?

Thirdly, awesome blog title. Real attention attractor.

TheBirdman33 said...

I will be sending good thoughts her way and I hope to hear updates!

I like the quieter more serious side of GB too.

=)

R.E.H. said...

Ouch... that sounds horrible.

I'll gift-wrap my positive vibes and send them Leslie's way right now...

Thanks for visiting!

Michael Young said...

I can appreciate your anxiety. Be assured of best wishes from Florida.

Ginormous Boobs said...

Bittersweet: We're doing our best to keep her in good spirits.

jo: We're slaying her around 3pm.

slyde: Much appreciated!

Lady: Thanks so much!

TheBirdman33 said...

You look adorable in that pic by the way.

I am a little shocked that you aren't blaming "Gwenyth" on the cleanliness of my kennel!

Ginormous Boobs said...

Some Guy: We have our fingers crossed.

Carmen: She believes in the positive energy thing, so she'll love this.

Jay: Me too.

Mike: I know. I think I need a trip to the Funny Bone after this too.

Tracey: Welcome. Actually, she went to the doctor in the first place because she thought it was bad takeout :) Nice to hear about your all clear and we hope it'll work out the same for her.

Ginormous Boobs said...

Mister: Unfortunately they have already determined it's stage 2 cancer. Blah!

Mike: I';m on my way over to check it out.

Also, I mentioned to Leslie a couple weeks ago that I really hoped it came with teeth. I so want her to keep it in a jar by her bed...or on her work desk.

Birdman: I'll def keep you updated. And if I'm not online, you know where to find me.

See, I told you I was dynamic. I'm not all boobs and lesbian make outs ALL the time.

r.e.h: Thanks for the thoughts!

Michael: Those Florida sunny vibes are welcome right about now.

Ginormous Boobs said...

Birdman: I broke every rule of my blogging anonymity to post that pic (Tabbie too), but it's my fave picture ever of all 3 of us.

And I think you have me confused with Tabbie. That's a heinous pic of me. Not as bad as my roller coaster ones, but close.

Gwyneth has apparently been too busy over in these parts to take down your kennel. But I still blame your work for getting me sick.

TheBirdman33 said...

I know which one is you...and I like what I see.

=P

Ginormous Boobs said...

Birdman: That's right, you do. And I think you might have seen this pic before on myspace.

Glad you like what you see.

Tequila Mockingbird said...

awe! i'm so sorry! i hope everything goes ok. i'll send you something special.

Globus said...

interesting blog. positive vibes from globus, and good luck :-)

Tony Alva said...

If you've been reading my blog, you know that my sister just had a softball sized cancerous tumor removed from her colon not three weeks ago. She went from diagnosis to surgery in less than a week. She had her first chemo treatment two days ago, so this is all way too familiar. What you and your frineds should know is that cancer IS survivable.

The worst for me is not being able to help out in some way. What me and my wife figured out to was this: Since she is going to have days where she just stays in bed and works that poison through her system we got her an iPod. I then asked all my blog readers to submit song titles to load onto it and me and the wife presented it to her. She absolutely loves it and was very touched by all the song suggestions. She's listening to it as we speak.

I will think positive thoughts for your friend and by all means keep your spirits up too. She needs that more than ever.

Ginormous Boobs said...

tequila: Hot damn, girl! That was a nice suprise in my mailbox. I have such a sweet spot for redheads. YUM!

globus: Welcome! Thanks for the vibes. She needs em right about now!

The Ambiguous Blob said...

I can't stand just sitting here at work and I'll never make it through tutoring tonight. Let's go to the hospital.

B.E. Earl said...

Best wishes from the bug-eyed world.

I'm sure Leslie is gonna see the other side of this, and she will appreciate having good friends like you kids while she is going through it.

Nice pic. ;)

Mister Underhill said...

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope everything works out ok. I had to have a lump removed a while ago. Hope it hasn't metastasized....

Monique said...

I sending lots of good vibes and positive thoughts your way.

I hope everything turns out well.

NWO said...

Prayers are on the way.

AB: You did pretty good at el hospital...see me speaking the Spanish?

B.E: Thanks for the well wishes. Glad you like the pic...I can't believe I posted it.

The Guv'ner said...

GOOD LUCK LESLIE! I'm sure you'll get rid of that Gwyneth bitch in no time and be worry free. VIBES FROM NYC!

Feel better you guys! Don't worry!

Ginormous Boobs said...

Guv: We took that bitch down!! Hopefully her reign of terror is over.

Palm Springs Savant said...

hey there...I'm new to your blog and just wanted to say hi, but also in response to you post, know that I am sending Leslie positive thoughts. She (and you all) will get through this ok. Even my psychic betta fish, Dr Wang says so.

Cary said...

good thoughts...
good thoughts...
good thoughts...

beaming them your way now

Del-V said...

I hope for the best for your friend. I've spent a lot of time in hospitals the past few days and doctors are amazing. I know she'll be OK.

Chris said...

I hope things went well!

captain corky said...

I hope your friend is ok. I'm glad you and your gals are going to be there for her.

Wonder Woman said...

Gwyneth NEEDS TO DIE!

And of course sending your friend many positive thoughts. Even maybe a prayer or two.

Positive vibes, THAT'S for later... once she feels up to it ;-P

Mind you hospital sex...

;)

God Bless!

Ginormous Boobs said...

Meems: That bitch is out (along with the spleen, part of the bowel and part of the pancreas). We'll know more about her demise in a few days when test results come back.

Princess: Thanks so much for the giggle.

PSS: Welcome! And that fish sounds like a very smart fellow.

Ginormous Boobs said...

Cary: Much appreciated!

Del-V: This doc seemed to be pretty good..our fingers are crossed.

Chris: They went pretty well...as well as can be expected with this kind of operation.

CC: We;re trying our best.

WW: Leslie would so be into hospital sex.

The Mountain Cat said...

GB, All the best. Have faith.

Babycakes said...

That's scary. I can't believe they can get that big. I hope all goes well.

pistols at dawn said...

I certainly hope Gwyneth is as gone as my respect for the Academy after it called Shakespeare in Love the Best Picture. If that's the Best Picture of any year, we should all stop making movies for a few years and rest up.

Winter said...

Hope everything goes well.

TheBirdman33 said...

I haven't gotten an update on this...

and do you know how F**King cute you are?

Ginormous Boobs said...

Mountain: Thanks!

Baby: I know...and it grew so super fast!

POD: We are still waiting for her to take her bow and get off the friggin stage.

Winter: Me too.

Birdman: Well, you need to call me so I can give you an update.

Also I don't know how cute I am...I need you to whisper it in my ear a few more times.

katherine. said...
