Boing Boing fave Simone Giertz (of "Shitty Robots" fame) had brain surgery earlier this year, so it's great to see her back with an update.
Here's her sweet message to her subscribed fans:
I had a brain tumor. Then I had some brain surgery. Then I made a video about it. I've missed you.

I wouldn’t wish this experience on anyone, but all of you made it feel like a bizarre blessing. #brainblessed #tumorhumor #whothefuckuseshashtagsinyoutubedescriptions #apparentlyido
Even with insurance (which she luckily had), major surgery often carries ancillary costs, so show Simone some love over at Patreon!
