Hello everyone. I have cancer—Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia to be exact. 

I was diagnosed officially Thursday August 22, 2019 but the “c word” has been said to me since last Friday August 16, 2019.

As of now, my outlook is good. I am at Johns Hopkins and they are taking good care of me. I had my first round of chemo last night. My doctor treats many of these cases (he *is* the Leukemia Doctor I’m told) and, given my age, expects me to go into complete remission or even be cured. Right now, the most annoying thing is being in the hospital for the next month. I’m a little bored...but the nurses enjoy bantering with me.

Stephanie and I are still figuring out “what we need”. Eventually, meal trains may be helpful, but not yet. Prayer and support is the most vital. Steph has been doing great and has been a great source of comfort and strength for me. My Mom has also been a joy to have visit and watch the Noster. I’m also appreciative of my Dad and Brother keeping in touch from afar. I am also thankful for my in-laws’ prayers, watching Noah, and checking on Steph.

I’m allowed visitors—just be clean and not sick.

Anyway, just wanted to keep everyone posted.
