When you need a smile, when things are getting you down, you can always head over to Bunni’s blog for some easing of your worried mind.
Now, it’s Bunni whose mind needs easing…
I’m not going to sugarcoat this: Bunni has inoperable, terminal liver cancer that has metastasized and has been given but a few more months to live.
As she put it in an e-mail to Zilla:
So, I’m terminal. There are so many tumors in my abdomen, and the liver is enlarged very much, they can’t operate, the tumors and blood vessels are too much and too close, they can’t do chemo, or NOTHING, so I just will be seeing palliative care Dr.’s for medicine adjustments to help with the pain, and then just get my affairs in order and wait to die.
Zilla, God Bless Her, has been speaking with Bunni and convinced her to go public about her situation.
As I said over at Bob’s place: Damn you, cancer.
There was a while there when I lost track of Bunni. She took a forced hiatus from from blogging (see Zilla’s post for more details), then I got bombarded with real-life work and we didn’t really reconnect. That’s my fault, and one of the reasons I kinda suck at teh internetz.
Back to the business at hand.
It is said that blogging brings out a writer’s true nature. Bunni’s blog is a sugar rush of sunny cheer. All she wants to do is bombard you with laughs and hope. Conservative writing can often mean reading heaping doses of dour pessimism, but Bunni is always ready to lift your spirits.
Bunni is facing tough times. She could really use her bloggers-in-arms to help shoulder some of the burden. If you have the means, please consider donating to her medical treatment fund.
Positive thoughts and humble prayers are in order as well.
