Had my follow up with my surgeon:

Stage 1!!!!

Next: meet with the oncologist. The Breast Navigator should be calling to set up an appointment by the end of next week.

And my doctor gave me medical Goo Be shone to clean up the adhesive from the stern strips. I knew it had to exist. (Not actually called medical Goo Be Gone.)

Love one another.

Hey, folks.

Not sure how many of you are adjacent to the filk scenes in either the SF Bay Area or Seattle, but my wife's "fannish godmother," Colleen Savitzky, passed away this past Monday morning during some pretty dire abdominal surgery. Here is Steve Savitzky's post. No formal obit or plans for gathering yet, but Steve's Livejournal/Dreamwidth will probably be the place to watch.

Colleen and I were not close, but she meant a great deal to Lisa at a time when Lisa was very much discovering who she was and who she wanted to become. And Steve is one of the kindest men I've ever known.

Steve asks us, in the post, to let the folks we love know they're loved. This post is me doing that.

I remember the crazy days. 500 posts an hour. Nubmer! Natgbsb

It's mid-November and you know what that means...I GET REALLY PLANNY HOLIDAY-Y.

I am not sure I have the spoons to do much except cheerlead this year and possibly get some things in the mail myself (some of them really really LATE), so Jen P is stepping in to be spreadsheet and communications czarina.

The Holiday Card Exchange IS ON!! Here is the link to fill out the info form to get in on the mailtime goodness. [link]

Happy Thanksgiving, and another call-out for holiday card interest! I know the line breaks don't work -- no problem at all, just use commas or whatever.

The link: [link]

Let's see... how about a deadline of five more days for sign-up, Tuesday, Nov. 30th. (Will try to get your info. to you by end of the day next day.)

JenP - Nov 30, 2021 9:54:30 am PST #4058 of 4082

Does this count as spamming Press? Maybe!

Today's the day -- if you'd like to participate in the b.org holiday card exchange, please sign up at the link in the previous post (don't worry about the line break issue in the form) by today.

I will send out your recipient list to you on Wednesday, 12/1.

Please try to have your cards in the mail by (what was it? ::checks::) January 6th.

(If you end up needing a relief pitcher, just let me know - completely fine if it happens; don't give it a second thought. Well, other than letting me know; do give it that thought. But don't beat yourself up, is what I'm saying.)

JenP - Dec 01, 2021 5:54:29 pm PST #4059 of 4082

OK, holiday card assignments sent! If you didn't get an email from me, please email me at my profile addy. A couple of the addresses looked like they might be old, and I checked the B.org Master Mailing list, but those were no more updated for the couple I'm not sure about.

To avoid any possible confusion, your personal list to send to is in body of the email, but if you opted in to receive the complete address list, you have the complete list attached. Not expecting you to send to everyone on it!

So, your list of recipients is in the email; whole list attached in case you are feeling more writery than you thought.

Again, if you need a pinch hitter, just let me know.
