On November 2, 2016 I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and was admitted to Sutter Medical Center in downtown Sacramento. I have since been in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit except for about 12 days around Christmas when I was fortunate enough to get out to be with my loved ones.  I have had 6 rounds of chemo, lost my hair, been nauseated, shed my skin a few times and ate daily hospital food.  I have an excellent specialist, amazing care, incredible support from my family and friends and am fortunate enough to have a sister who is a match to my bone marrow and willing to be my donor.  I am getting ready to go into the transplant phase of the process which will involve a chemo session for me and a process for my sister in preparation for a stem cell transplant procedure.  This phase should begin in mid April give or take, thus, I wont be out until mid May.  At that time I will require round the clock care for a projected 100 days.  The first few weeks will require  daily trips to the infusion center for evaluation.  It has been and will continue to be a long road I am determined to successfully complete.  I want to thank everyone for your continued support and prayers.
