I've been ill. Last Thurs (6/11/20) I was admitted to the hospital and I'm now at University of Maryland Medical Center downtown in their Oncology Ward. I can't have any visitors. The Drs came in this morning and said I have “B-ALL” (B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia for Adults).  The doctors are still waiting on the subset to determine treatment. (That should be back maybe tomorrow.). Flowers nor visitors are allowed, but pretty much anything else is like cards/gifts. Robert's working from home because of Covid so he's able to stay home with Bobby. I'll be here for another 4-6 weeks.  I’ll do my best to keep everyone up to date. Love all of you.
