Good News

Dear Family and Friends,

I received good news from my oncologist today. My blood work revealed that I remain in remission, and the doctor is hopeful that it will be a long one. However, as expected, my immune system is still suppressed, so I need to be careful of infections. My next oncology check-up is scheduled for six months from now.

Tovi and Reuben have decided that I “Hulk Smashed” the cancer, and I am not one to argue with teen and pre teen boys. They are experts on the Incredible Hulk, after all. I will continue to eat an anti-cancer diet of as much organic spinach and veggies as possible, perhaps until I actually do turn green like the Hulk.

Seriously, thank you all your your many expressions of concern, support, and kindness. It gives me the strength to keep on keeping on.

Best wishes,

P.S. Don’t forget to watch Solo: A Star Wars Story. It will be released next week.
