Important Note III

Hey there!  I wanted to give you an update on things, taken from the public post at my Patreon page:

I also want to thank you for your comments here at Barbaric Brawn.  I read them all and they made me smile.  Thank you for your kindness and taking the time to comment.  I appreciate it very much.

---------------------------------

Update: 12/16/2020 -- Hey again, guys.  It's been quite some time since I last updated you all about this situation.  It's mostly because I'm worried that I'm scaring people with it.  That's the last thing I want to do.  But there isn't any reason to be worried.  It's all gonna be fine. 😄  I'm pretty young and healthy and my doctor is going to be able to be more aggressive with the treatment because of it.

I had an appointment with an oncologist/radiologist colleague of my oncologist at the Cancer Center on Monday to talk about my treatment coming up on the 17th (tomorrow morning).  I found out that everything is still on schedule for the same treatment (rituximab and methotrexate).  She told me that they weren't expecting to find what they found and, again, that all things considered, I was fortunate that it ended up being what it was.  They still don't know what caused this rare form of lymphoma, but I have a feeling that it might be related to stress.  And that's something I will be confronting after this is done.  There are things I need to change in my life and I will.

I also had a retinal exam a few days prior to that, and the specialist found no lymphoma in my eye, which was a concern because of where it had formed.  So that's good news, too!

I'm not sure if I'll be admitted to the hospital after the antibody and chemotherapy -- it entirely depends on how my body reacts to it.  I'm hopeful I can just go back home and recover, but it's possible my oncologist may admit me for a short time just to be safe.

On a nicer note, I've been working on the PDF adaptation of Wrangled and Roped and have incorporated Big Beef Heat into the beginning of that story.  I've also made another lockerroom scene with Alexi and Gorilla and a bedroom scene with Alexi and Ryan to help fill in the story a bit more.  24 new/remade image pages so far.  It's looking great and I'm excited see it take shape and to release to you guys when it's ready.

I wanted to thank you all again for your kind words of support and for sticking with me during this ordeal.  It's really meant the world to me and I love you all very much.  Take great care of yourselves and I'll be seeing you again soon!
