Yes, you read that right - we are back. Leslie was diagnosed with large B-cell non-Hodgkins lymphoma in the middle of March, which was transformed from his follicular lymphoma that he had in 2011. While the cancer is kind of bad, the treatment options are wonderful! He will have three or four chemo treatments, have a PET scan, and depending on what that scan reveals, he will either have a stem-cell transplant or a CAR-T procedure. His oncologist just happens to be one of five experts in the world, so we are hoping that he will have this new procedure. We are a little overwhelmed at the moment, but please know that we do not want you to tiptoe around this with us. We need prayers, positive thoughts, humor, and absolutely no negativity - there just isn't time or room for that. We are very excited about the treatment plan, and we know that we are just going to have to beat this beast again, make him a 'two-timer,' and grow to be really old people that our grandchildren make fun of. We love you all, and thank you!
