Happy Birthday Dad

To say you are thought of every day and missed terribly are gross understatements. Your presence is very strong and I’m fortunate that the love and memories only grow stronger [...]

Fight the good fight, finish the race, & keep the faith. And while you’re at it… in no particular order… Be kind. Be patient. Be bold. Be humble. Be grateful. Be an example. Be early. Keep the glass ¾ full. Listen. Allow yourself to fail once in a while. Laugh at yourself. Relax. Hold the door. [...]

I’m on TOP

My blood work continues to behave and is responding exactly as hoped now being on the targeted therapy drug Ibrutinib for 5 months to treat my chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
