I have the need for a momentary lapse of control.  And I’ll apologize in advance if I offend anyone, but I have to say this.  I FUCKING HATE CANCER!!!!  I HATE IT!  I BEYOND-WORDS HATE IT!!!  If cancer was a person, I would stab it in the eye, beat it to a bloody pulp, and then I’d do a little dance on its dead carcass.

We just got the news that my father-in-law’s prostate cancer has progressed to his skull, his spine, his shoulder blade, his ribs and both of his femurs.  My mother-in-law isn’t handling the news very well — she lost her first husband to cancer (melanoma) too — she’s been having some heart issues, and the added stress isn’t helping.

I know we usually reserve our collective Tripawd mojo for our canine friends, but we could really use some for Rio’s gramma and grampa, too.

  1. Oh Micki, that’s terrible! I agree… cancer is the most vile effin’ beast on this planet. I hate how it wreaks such havoc on those we love. I am so sorry to hear about your father-in-law. I deal with cancer every day at work, and it’s terrible how prevalent prostate cancer is. Sending lots of love, prayers, and Tripawd mojo to Rio’s gramma and grampa.

  2. I’m not offended a bit…in fact it made me feel better about ranting a little on the Woo post.
    But in my most sincere thoughts, I am truly sorry that you,your husband and family have really had so much adversity in the time that I have met you. I know you are weary at times but am amazed at how you keep “picking yourself and others back up”. If cancer wasn’t so cowardice, I know you would beat it’s ass. We would all celebrate with you and dance on its carcass! So now we stick our finger in the air and give it the Miki salute!

  3. Certainly not offended here. We fucking hate it too. It took my sister’s husband WAY too young. It took so many of my family’s pups from us. It totally doesn’t play fair.

    I hate that you guys are having to go through this on top of everything else. We are all here any time you need to rant. We would gladly beat the crap out of cancer with you if we could.

  4. What a horrible blow to be dealt. Who was it that made the giant “FUCK CANCER” sticker for their truck window? I think we all need them. I’ll keep your family in my prayers.

  5. Very sorry to hear this news. We lost Zeus’ brother to cancer two years ago, I lost a brother-in-law to cancer several months ago and now it has its grip on Zeus. It will be a wonderful day when some individual discovers a cure for this monster. My thoughts are with your family. If ranting helps, then by all means- rant away!

  6. Your not offending anyone but cancer- and we really don’t give a fuck if you offend it.
    Our family has been touched several times by cancer so I know how you feel. And I shouldn’t say touched- I should say slapped, or slammed, or walloped. Someone really needs to wallop cancer back!
    Sending strong, positive thoughts for gamma and gampa, and for you and your husband too.

  7. Fuck it, I will join this hate-fest too. I think the C word is the worst curse word I know.
    I will keep you all in my prayers and hope for some miracles to come your way. We have had several family members deal with this horrible disease and it is just evil. Know you will always have a shoulder to lean/cry on at this site.
    Hugs to you,

  8. Well fuck. Can you fucking use profanity to complain about fucking cancer here?

    Ooh, that was amusing.

    I have no idea why some people end up with cancer, some with epilepsy, some with MS, whatever. Life ain’t fair and we know it, but it doesn’t make it any easier, does it? I hope you can impart some of your strength to your mother-in-law, because you are pretty doggone strong. You guys all have to stick together to be able to kick ass and take names. In the meantime, you’ve got a lot of love here and a lot of powerful juju stuff aimed right at you all.


  9. Sending major mojo to gramma and grampa. Micki, I just lost my mom to cancer, and my sister in 2008. I hate it too (or do I fucking hate it?) If it’s any consolation whatsoever, they both had great care, the pros really know what they’re doing with this stuff. I know you’ll be strong for them – vent here! It will help.

    Sending major hugs to you.

  10. what to say….sometimes, we say, well, they knew they were setting themselves up, smoking, working with asbestos, farming with chemicals, etc. othertimes, we say, why does it hit the innocent, the good, the righteous. there is no fair. there is no ‘correct’ or ‘right’….. cancer is a son of a bitch…it affects all of us…but until we ALL decide to focus on destroying it, it will continue to burden us with its pain… sorry your family is suffering with this again, let’s join forces and kick cancer’s ass!!!!

  11. Oh, I’m so sorry to hear about Rio’s grampa & gramma. Sending much love, mojo and huggs their way.

    Yes – cancer just doesn’t realize it’s just one big fuck up and should fuck off.


  12. Dang! I’d cuss, but my luck – someone will google me down the road and it’ll be the first google listing to show up!

    I’ll say “Ditto” instead!

    So sorry Micki for what you are going through. My thoughts are with you. It’s not easy.

  13. Not offended here either. When we found out my Dad was terminal (in 2001) I wanted to make one of those big huge punching bags in the shape of a person and spray paint CANCER on it and pretty much do the same with it that you said. And when Butchey was diagnosed I really wish I had made “The Cancer Bag” so I could beat the crap out of it again. And then again a couple of months ago, when my aunt got diagnosed.

    Cancer fucking sucks…whether its victim is canine or human. I am so sorry to hear of your family’s troubles. I will keep your father-in-law and your mother-in-law in my thoughts.

    Hugs to you

    Nancy & Butchey

  14. Micki, I’m so, so sorry for just now seeing this news. Cancer is a bastard, it must be stopped.

    All my love to your family and your in-laws is coming your way right now.
