I want to start off by saying how much I appreciate you, my audience. Without you watching TronicsFix content and supporting me/us through the years I wouldn't be able to do any of this. No, I'm not quitting YouTube BUT the truth is, I'm sick. In December of 2023, after some bouts with severe abdominal pain, they found a mass in my abdomen which was surgically removed and I was diagnosed with lymphoma.
As scary as this diagnosis was/is, the good news is that in many cases it can be cured with treatment. Everyone is different so that may or may not be my story but I am hopeful.
- Please note: I have a really good team of health professionals that are giving me the best care and advice that I can get. I'm not looking for any advice on treatments right now and if that changes I'll let you know.
So how does this affect our business and video production schedule? Honestly, we really don't know yet. My treatments will be starting soon but there's just no way to know how I'll handle treatment. Some people handle it fine and can work like normal, others just can't. I'm hoping that I'll be able to create my normal number of videos but the most important thing here is that I take the time I need to get better. Unfortunately, there's just no way to know. I can promise you though that I'll do everything I can to get better while still producing as much content as I can. That all being said, you'll probably notice a few changes:
- I might look and sound quite different. I'll have a port in place that may be noticeable and I'll likely start wearing hats and maybe even throw in a wig, lol. I will be losing my hair, both on the top of my head as well as on my face so that will be a big change. Most of you have never even seen me without facial hair!
- My videos may be shorter or may be videos that are easier to produce. Even if I do well with treatment, I'll have a lot of doctors appointments to go to and I'll definitely need some time to myself which means I'll likely just not have as much time to put into making videos. They may be shorter but we will do our best to keep the quality the same as usual.
- You'll probably see TronicsWife a bit more and she might even make her own video or two for the channel. She's enjoyed being in a few of my videos so if we can think of some good video ideas for her she may just make some herself.
Again, I really appreciate every one of you who supports our business. Thank you in advance for your support and I'll be sure to update you all periodically.
