This was the first PT in a bit over two weeks (because I was on vacation, and then I postponed what would have been Tuesday's session to give the ankle a bit of time to rest/recover).

mostly for my records )

A while ago, we had a post about Timeslip, in which contemporary creators reimagined various Marvel characters. More recently we had a post about the all-powerful Molecule Man. I thought I'd post the image where he appears and a summary of the backstory of the image that came with it.

I didn't make it this year, but past WisCons have been the first and only place I've heard speakers acknowledge the indigenous peoples on whose stolen land they're speaking. I would like to do this in my own speaking, including an upcoming talk in Washington, DC, and I'm wondering if there are tips or resources out there? Is there a name for this practice? I want to make sure I do this in a respectful, accurate, NOT "look at my white tears" way.

About two years ago, Julie was diagnosed with cancer.

Her Bcr-Abl levels at the time were just over 100. At each three-monthly meeting with her consultant they've (approximately) halved, with the result that in February this year they hit 0.126, which is getting close to the level at which they're happy that you're clear.

Sadly, at today's meeting, we discovered that they haven't dropped any further in the three months to May. Which is a bit worrying - as when the drop plateaus it tends to mean that something somewhere has mutated or otherwise become resistant.

This isn't necessarily the case though, and the side-effects have actually been a bit worse in the last 8 weeks (since Julie stopped taking Omeprazole, which affects stomach acid, and can thus interact somewhat with the takeup of her current medication).

So the doctor had some more blood taken, and we should hear back in about three weeks how things are going now. Nobody is panicking about anything, and there are multiple different options available to her if it turns out that Nilotinib is no longer doing the job.

But if I seem even more stressed and off-hand than usual over the next while, it's because I'm distracted, Julie is distracted, and overall there's a chunk of distractedness going on.

Because, really, I do not have anything worth making a reading post about since last week, what with 4th Street and everything (also, a lot of times when normally I would have been reading, e.g. waiting for things or in transit, I was either plotting or trying to type up on the tablet the next episode of [personal profile] the_comfortable_courtesan).

Partner is home - was feeling fit enough to walk home from the hospital when I collected him - although a minor operation is to be scheduled in due course. Many thanks for all the good wishes.

Still gradually catching up with myself - 12 hours more or less sleep and not having to go into work makes a considerable difference.

An elitist is a person with ability who tells the masses not to obey the rich white guys. If you don't believe that, consider this article about Donald Trump as anti-elite politician.

(And let's hear it for the Chicago brewery that renamed their Donald Trump beer "Chinga Tu Pelo.")

The blog will be relatively quiet for a week or so. I have very important “research” to do up north for the next book.

My paid account at DW is about to expire.  If anyone has DW points that they're not using, I could put those to good use.  The paid account lets me to extra things like have custom icons for my different series, thus making serial posts easier to spot. 

EDIT: Thanks to [personal profile] lilly_c for a six-month renewal!  W00T!
