Of Cancer Giants & Recovery Beanstalks (A Health Update)

Yelena Bryksenkova

Our Fairy Tale Newsroom isn't in full swing yet but we are on the tail end of two back-to-back surgeries, two hospital stays and - so far - excellent recovery on both of those counts.

Both our Editor and her husband are now officially cancer-surgery-survivors.

Doctors appointments, ongoing tests, and recovery are still very much the flavor of the day but we are slowly finding our new normal this week. News and social media appearances are likely to remain sporadic for a while but we've conquered the fearsome giant that suddenly loomed large in our lives - twice now! - these past 14 months*, and are now working on the rest of that beanstalk climb... (sometimes climbing down is more challenging than climbing up!)

To all those lovely readers who have sent healing vibes and good wishes, thank you so much. We greatly appreciate your support in these challenging times.

*14 months from our Editor's double-mastectomy, 19 months if you count from our Junior Editor's emergency apendectomy and subsequent two hospital stays early last year! We will be very happy if we never have to live at the hospital ever again.
