My Hero..

    What a nicely shaped head!
Some of you know, but this is the first real announcement about a project Dina and I have been working on for several months.

Around about TRPS last fall Dina found a lump in one of her breasts which turned out to be Breast Cancer. Now, a half of a year and untold medical appointments later, we have made it through three surgeries and what's billed as the worst of the chemo therapys. On occasion this has kicked the stuffing out of Dina (and myself) but it's only served to make her more determined and stronger.

If we have learned anything it has been that this is a process and there is no straight line from point A to point B, so we know that we don't really know what we have left before us to deal with, but we do find reason to be happy that we have made it through two stages of the process. We made it through the surgery stage two months ago, and now we had the last of the very difficult chemos this past Tuesday. We aren't finished, Dina just had a thick wave of nausea this morning.. but we know that everything we do this round is the last time we will have to do it. Next up is 3 months of weekly 'less bad' chemo followed by radiation...

There is no evidence at this point that Dina has cancer, we believe that the surgery got it all. The chemo and everything else is insurance against recurrence. Dina never showed any evidence of the disease other than the lump she found last fall. Our struggle has been with the cure.

We are continuing our lives as we go through this process. Dina has been working a scaled down schedule as she feels up to it. Her coworkers at Amoeba have been awesome in allowing her the time she needs to get through this.

Late last year I instigated a moritorium on deadline jobs because I could only really predict how much time I had to work within the particular 7-10 day medical appointment window we were in at the moment. Each appointment lead to new appointments and new information to come to terms with. But I did take a couple of long deadline poster jobs.. the Lila Downs and The Dandy Warhols.

I've shifted my work attention to projects I can work on as I have time. I have a few new art prints, Tshirt designs, I've been reworking my studio spaces for the next full on assault, and I put together this blog. I will start picking up on jobs as we move into the easier chemo in coming weeks, as soon as we know that it is going to be easier for us. I will be back in full force as we finish with chemo entirely in three months time.
