Support team assemble‽

(call to action: if you’d like to check in with me, you can sign up for visits or calendar invites to virtual brunches/in-person visits.)

I HAVE A SURGERY TIME. IT IS EARLY MONDAY MORNING.

LIKE REALLY EARLY.

AND I’M NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE ANY TEA OR OTHER SOURCE OF CAFFEINE BECAUSE I HAVE TO START FASTING ON SUNDAY.

(Not that i’m sleeping that much anyway.)

I’ll be at the hospital until Thursday (Sept 1). Starting on Saturday, September 10, we’re going to do visits (masked, N95s provided, please test before coming) as well as virtual brunch and dinners over Zoom/Google Meet throughout week, and hopefully Minecraft on Thursday nights (I haven’t played before, come be bad at games with me!).

The best way to stay up to date is following this blog. Bitsy is collecting info to send calendar invites and set up Signal groups (opsec, yo) for texting/call support, caregiving backups, and in-person visits!

Less than 40 hours to go!
