So much has happened since I last blogged. So. Much.
There were shingles that derailed my Christmas plans. (I still haven’t seen my family and have unwrapped gifts in my house!) Then there was a sinus infection. The usual chemo side effects. And then most recently a trip to the Emergency Vet with Boomer and a biopsy of my own lymph nodes to see if I had more cancer. I went on prednisone to try and keep up with it all, and that has side effects too.
Anyway, it would seem I do not have more cancer, just the one. At least that’s my understanding of the medical report in my patient chart. I don’t actually meet with my oncologist until next week.
I would normally send you all to my Twitter account to catch up, and you can still do that, but I’m preparing to migrate from that site to another with a little less Elon Musk. If you know, you know.
I’m on Discord, Mastadon, and Counter.Social right now (just search for Emily Suess) until I know where I want to land. And maybe I’ll just go back to my first love, blogging, in the end. I’m really embracing the change as I am having a hard time making Twitter be the fun, relaxing experience it once was. Like Facebook, I just don’t need extra drama stuck in my face all day long.
All I know for certain is that I’ll eventually settle, and when I do that, you’ll be the first to know.
Work has started at my mom’s. It’s slow going, but I’m so ready to be close to my family and hang out with them. In-person game night and real hugs without a two-and-a-half-hour trip. The thought!
This is hastily written, I know. I’ll be back.
