So much has happened since I last blogged. So. Much.. including shingles news.

There were big, bad 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.
