For any of you who know us personally you know what all we have gone through in the last 3+ years with the illness and death of my wife Patty from the side effects of leukemia. In my previous blog entries I have talked about how sick Nancy - Patty's mom who lives with us has been. As a result of her feeling sick and low blood counts, Nancy had to have a bone marrow biopsy last Wednesday. The preliminary results are back and they do not show any evidence of cancer/leukemia. So that is good news. Now the hematologist needs to figure out what is taking place to cause her blood counts to be so low. All-in-all given the alternatives it is a piece of good news. One other quick note... for those of you who live in the Denver area, consider going into Bonfils and donating blood this week. I got a call yesterday from them asking me to come in again and donate platelets this week. That is very unusual because I just gave platelets last week. The issue is that there is a severe shortage of blood and blood products here in the Denver area. So please considering giving blood or platelets this week. Thanks and peace to all. - J.
