So, I have some health news to share. Since June of last year, we have been trying to get a read on some swollen lymph nodes on the right side of my neck. Have undergone needle and core biopsies, CT scans, PET scan, and three surgical biopsies. Finally got the tissue and pathology we need from last week’s surgery. I have Non-Hodgkins lymphoma and will begin chemo on Monday, 4/2. Treatment is a three week cycle and I will go thru six of those cycles. I am in great hands at IU Health’s Simon Cancer Center. FWIW: My lymphoma has been linked to Agent Orange which I walked thru for two years in Vietnam. Ah, Vietnam, the gift that keeps on giving. Would appreciate your prayers as my family and I go through this treatment. Peace, John.
