After my recent surgery I asked for contributions from those in a position to give them to help make up for the lost income and expense of the surgery. For those who contributed, I cannot thank you enough. This is such an amazing community and I appreciate so much how we step up for one another when the chips are down. And I’m happy to report that the recovery is going very well, far better than I could have guessed it would after the surgery. Very little pain and discomfort and I’m slowly regaining my stamina (what little I had).
I find everyone’s generosity especially incredible because this was all done a couple days before Christmas and the request was posted on a weekend, when traffic is down. Despite that, dozens of people were kind enough to give a little or a lot. Again, a huge thank you not just to those who have given money and helped take that burden off my plate, but also to the hundreds of you who reached out to wish me a speedy recovery. Your good wishes helped make a very difficult couple of weeks a whole lot easier.
If there’s anyone who would still like to contribute, you can donate through Paypal (if neither of these work below, just go to Paypal.com and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org):
