It’s been a heck of a year. And a heck of a month.
One week ago we got the news that I have invasive breast cancer. Ever since, we’ve been getting more pieces to that puzzle. The good news is that signs so far point to it being relatively early-stage (and hopefully more treatable), though we won’t know that for sure until surgery.
Things are moving pretty fast.
We wanted to get a small blog going just to keep people in the know. As goofy as a blog may seem, most of the pre-made/template sites seemed even cheesier, so here we are on good ol’ WordPress.
Want to help but don’t know what to do?
We’re not sure what’s most helpful* quite yet either.
*(other than supportive emails/notes/mail or non-bummer mixtapes)
…but we’ve been assured things will get hard over the next few months, and that yes, we WILL need help.
If you’re feelin’ it, put your name and contact info down here, and we’ll have a friend reach out when we get to the point where we might need meal delivery, a ride to an appointment, a Sparky-Coupon-dogsitter, or just someone to buy J an emergency bottle of whiskey.
We have been — and are — so amazingly thankful for so many things, and particularly for SO many people. We are intensely lucky to have some fantastic, tremendously supportive, funny and smart friends, family and folks all around us, and even just knowing y’all care and are out there means a lot right now.
So, from the very start, thank you.
If you’re reading this, there’s a very good chance we love you, or at the very least, think you’re pretty damn cool.
