This Friday, September 20th I’m having chest surgery to have a large cancerous tumor removed. One Dei and I have affectionately nicknamed “Kuato/Quato.”
After weeks and weeks of constant blood work, x-rays, and one painful experience being awake during a Biopsy, it was determined that the tumor can be removed without the cancer spreading.
I’ve been dealing with my health in private for the last 3-4 months now. This was something I kept on the DL for the most part (posting only details to personal friends and vaguely talking about it on Twitter). I intended to keep it to myself, not wanting to worry or send out the wrong message that I’m starved for drama or attention. I had to focus on my health— resting and figuring things out are way more important than drama and the bullshit that comes along with it.
My friend Marie (Kipperthecorgi), however, made a very kind and sincere post requesting well wishes to be sent to me from the Corgi Tumblr community. I was absolutely FLOORED by the positivity, love, and well-wishes sent my way. I have no way of describing just how grateful I am for the continued support during this difficult time.
I never wanted to push this situation onto anyone— and strangers, without knowing all the details stepped out and sent their best. It just goes to show that Tumblr does have an extremely positive and loving side called the corgi tag.
During this time, I’ve grown to know who my real friends are. My best friends in the world have been so amazingly supportive and helpful— and friends from the distant land of Oregon traveled up to see me. I am so insanely fortunate to have you beautiful people in my life. (Special shou tout to Kibs who drove me to the hospital for my Pre-Op early this morning)!
I’ll be absent from Tumblr for up to a week. As I’m told, I might not be allowed internet access during my Hospital stay— but I should be back during my home time recovery.
I’m eager to continue with completed art work after my recovery. This has been a challenging time and I’m optimistic that I’ll continue to grow and function as an artist once physical pain is less of an issue.
For now, please enjoy my depiction of having a chest tumor.
