A short and somewhat disheartening update from the cancer front: Kira has been readmitted to the hospital after learning her port (removed from her arm) has actually left her with a blood clot and a subsequent blood infection. So, she’s back in hospital at least until Saturday and she’s r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-really high on pain meds. So, we have some reason for jealousy, no doubt, but now a new port will be installed, this time most likely in her chest so she can continue taking on board the caustic chemo liquids.
A couple of us got to see her the other day and while it was great to see her, it was rough to see her with a 103 degree fever caused from the blood infection. We have some rad pictures of her in the hospital though, as she is – in typical Kira fashion – f’ing all kinds of s— up. We’ll post them once we smuggle them out. So while they sort all this new B.S. out, her 2nd round of chemo will be temporarily on hold. The 1st round kicked the shit out of her, but she’s rallied before, and she’ll rally again. Makes you think Churchill speech type stuff, doesn’t it? Cancer is the nazi army, and Kira will fight them on the beaches.
For now, let us gaze upon the healthy Kira, pictured here just a few months ago in full flight. Her faithful Veloforma waits patiently in the stable for its owner to get well and once again break the legs off the OBRA women’s peloton.
Hang in there Your Grace, we’re all with you
Meanwhile, the kids are rallying big bucks in the fight for cancer research. There’s a certain fraudulent egomaniac cyclist out there who can’t hold a candle to some organized kids.
Next, they’re going to medically weaponize their lemonade, and it will become a new form of less destructive chemo. Yesterday began the fundraising efforts in earnest. If this doesn’t jerk a few tears out of you, you had best check your pulse.
