Friday Afternoon...

Hi all,

Not much more to update but since I've been moved to a new room right down the hall from the computer room, and since I need the exercise, I thought I'd post a quick note.

Finding a comfortable position in which to sit/lie down is next to impossible but this, too, shall pass. Other than the huge lump in my belly -- which, to be fair, is causing a few problems -- everything else feels pretty good. I have a lot more energy this afternoon than I did during my update this morning and I know that while the next two-plus days are going to take a while, I'll get through it. My big Sister Mo is here to help see to that! :)

So, just a short note letting you know that I'm doing fine. For the umpteenth time, I am still reading my emails and texts, and getting all my phone messages. Your constant love and support is such a major aspect of this fight and I can't tell you enough how much it means to me. As always, just know that if I don't get back to you, it doesn't mean I didn't get the message. I'm gonna guess that it could be two-three weeks before I can even begin to touch base with everyone that has contacted me during this time. I've received like 20+ texts in the last 24 hours alone, which officially makes me the most popular person writing for this blog.

The weather's gonna be great, so enjoy the weekend! I'll try to write more when I have the chance, but please don't assume anything if you don't see any updates. Have fun in the sun, and let's get ready for Monday!

With much love as always,

Hey Big Dog,

I'm smiling, thinking of your high pitched vocal imitation of me AGAIN and AGAIN during rehearsals.

You ROCK! xoxo

I don't suppose you would be willing to trade me Johjima and Halladay? For Abreu? Come on! He's good.

Keep plugging away buddy. We expect Leeg up by our traditional starting time after Christmas. :)

What was it that Tom Petty said? No, not that one, the one about marijuana.

Have fun exploring the confines of the hospital this weekend. Let us know here in the internets if there is something we can do to make the stay more palatable, like return your copy of Naughty Nurses II. Maybe next week.

I just want to tell you good luck, Striker, we're all counting on you.

Yo, Dino --still don't see that photo...the one Tiffany requested, but i can wait. i am practicing patience these days..
Tiffany asked (in case you don't know what the hell i am referring to): "please send us a pic of you in a hospital gown. looking coyly over your shoulder while you flash your booty."

THIS - i would LOVE to see!
Sending love and healing energy from Kenwood,
Lynn and Corey xxxxxx

Sit tight--that foul beast will be gone from your belly so soon. Hope you can find a position to get comfy. I recommend riding with Sweet sweet Sister Mo as much as you need to get there!

Hang in there!
