Oh Kath, how I have missed your words. Just read this to Steve and he is still laughing, what a wonderful way to start the day! Proud to be a golden gilr with you!


Welcome back! Site bookmarked, will check back to see what new riot has been started..:)

toni mcgee causey

Damn, it's great to see you here, blogging again. :) And YAY that the stage was ZERO, and they'll be able to do this as an outpatient. All good wishes, heading your way.


Thank you for some much-needed comic relief this morning Sweeney -- I really, really needed it!

Susan Eng


Thank Goodness you are back. There was an empty hole in my week without you!



Thank you - for the return to blogging, for the update, and for the laughter. If you must be a Pink Warrior, this is undoubtedly the best way of all. Hooray for such an encouraging prognosis and (relatively) easy treatment!

Keep talking, Kathy. We're listening. And laughing.

Kathy Reschini Sweeney

Hey, it's working! Thanks for the comments, guys!

Nancy Martin

Wait a minute. You didn't hire Me, Margie to take care of your office while you're out, did you? Because I could tell you some cautionary tales.

Bookmarking now . . . .

Kathy Reschini Sweeney

This is very cool - I wasn't sure it was going to actually post and work (thanks to Holly who set it up - we will be making more changes to the appearance as time rolls on).

I didn't realize how much I missed blogging until TLC actually shut down.

And Nancy - I have no clue how to get in touch with Her, Margie. Probably best!

Karen in Ohio

Oh, darling, Kathy, you are a much-needed breath of fresh air. Thank you for doing this!

Only you could make a needle biopsy hilariously funny. I am crossing fingers, toes and eyes for your complete recovery, and in record time.

See you in Boobburgh!

Pam aka SisterZip

Oh, my sweet Lord!

So glad you are here! While I can keep up with the TLCers on Facebook, I missed the long form.

Maryann Mercer

So nice to see your words again! And so nice to have to put down my tea lest I spread oolong all over my desk! Not a pretty sight. Hang in there, kiddo (and I can call you that only because I am older than you...hee hee) and keep typing! I'm off to do some Tuesday errands before I fax a request (with doctor's letter) to the place I work for so I can have bottled water during my shifts. Dry mouth is no big thing unless you have it...and I hate to try and sell books (or nooks) while sounding like I have some horrid disease. Turns people off, y'know? Keep your fingers crossed. Sometimes HR people don't get the dangers of retail!
PS. Wouldn't it be nice if we could have a two-boob table for mammograms instead of those "here, honey hold your breast above your head and place it on this plastic thing" machines? Still, that doesn't stop me from getting them every year.
PPS. Anyone heard the "news" that women 65 and over no longer need to have paps? I almost fell over when my doctor said that. Really? I want to know why.

Welcome back to the blogosphere, Kathy! Having had a needle biopsy (or TWO), I can so relate to the Stonehenge massage table thing.

You rock, girlfriend.


Let's see, a blog run by Kathy, with no holds barred, and a group of TLC refugees commenting? Oh no, this won't be any fun at all.

I had a needle biopsy and enjoyed the hanging boob table experience, too. It didn't seem humorous at the time, but now I'll bet some entrepervneur is selling them on Craigslist.

I've got five words about this new blog,Kathy: "Damn glad to see ya!"

judy larsen

Oh, Kathy, how I've missed you. Yay for Boobburgh!

Elaine Viets

Kathy, so great to see you back and dissing cancer. You're some woman -- and one entertaining writer. Like I said before, the best of us all.


Too funny! I plan on being a regular reader and have your blog bookmarked! Good luck next week!

Kathy Reschini Sweeney

"TLC Refugees" - I love that!

Yinz guys are just what the doctor (the real one, not the pre-pubescent one) ordered.

Thanks so much for the welcome!!


Baltimore Jack

Funny how I can hear your voice when I read this. Glad I have this to read when I need a Kack fix. I could share my story about what I said during the prostate exam from my very attractive lesbian PC doc but I don't think it's appropriate for print. Keep the blogs coming ;-)


Great Blog!!! Glad you have returned. Riunite indeed. Poor resident will never be the same. Keep us posted and if you need anything. Glad you caught it early. You are in my prayers.

i'm ann coulter. no, i swear.

what's a haitian dictator doing at magee anyway?

also: i am slightly sad you didn't go for "titsburgh," i think it's the more obvious rhyme. people wouldn't be able to look at the blog at work, true, but you did already say cugina.

Laura (in PA)

Yay!!!! You made my day, Kathy. I'm so sorry for your diagnosis, but very happy it sounds easily treatable. And your medical professionals will be treated to you, as well.

SOOO happy to see you doing this. And my profound thanks that you have now put the image of the dangling boob in my head for the rest of the day. XO


Ahhhhhh, now this is nice. I am so glad that you are blogging, Kathy. I have always appreciated your straight-up way of saying how you feel...and still make me laugh.

I have you bookmarked!


I saw a post on FB about pitchers and catchers reporting soon. When my team was in the wasteland of last place, I used to say, up until that first loss, usually on Opening Day, that we are still in first place.

And that, right now, is where the Bucs are. It is where they will stay until Opening Day. So, enjoy it while it lasts, because It Won't Last Long.


Hey, Kathy, soooo very glad to see you here. So, I'm assuming you got my reference to the cows and the milking machine I sent you last week, right? My biopsy table was raised about 8 feet in the air to boot. Extra incentive not to move around too much or you'd crash off the table probably leaving said boob still stuck in that offensive hole.

Since it's a scientific fact laughter is the best medicine, we will provide the medicine, you provide the words.
