The latest news is that this past week I started a one week round of chemo for fighting the leukemia. Each month for six months I will do a week of chemo and then rest and watch the little bad white cells hopefully disappear. Of course, one consequence of chemo treatment is the possibility of losing your hair. To prepare for that I'm now sporting a short haircut and have a wig already waiting in my closet if I need it. In the meantime I have been reading up everything I can find on Leukemia and Cancer and have joined a great cancer support group at the Lake Manassas Cancer Center which is located on state route #29 not far from our house.
