Received this from Desmond today... send thoughts, prayers, jokes and cards.


It's official - the tit goes. Friday. THIS coming Friday. Dr. Klimburg is
doing a mastectomy of my left breast (the one you got the .tif file of).
I'll be at UAMS in Little Rock for one night, then home. No reconstruction -
I'm opting for the new molded plastic job - they make a reproduction of the
remaining breast and invert it to make a copy. Cool, huh? If anyone wants a
copy, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

I haven't called the funeral home yet about them cremating this breast and
keeping the ashes in a ziplock bag until the rest of me arrives. I'll let
you know what they say.

Think positive thoughts and continue to send those tasteless jokes.

Love, Desmond
