We visited with the doctor about noon today. The leukemia (MDS/MPN) I was diagnosed with 2 1/2 years ago has become active. They have not established a firm treatment recommendation yet but it sounds like I will be getting chemo treatments 5 days a month for 4-6 months. The hope is that my bone marrow will start again making white cells and that my neutrophils will increase over this time. Until that happens I will need to be very cautious about eating any uncooked food and I will be wearing a mask everywhere I go.
We will again visit with Mayo the 14th of July when they will firm up the treatment recommendations.

Lynne and I appreciate all your prayers, encouraging words, and the support we are receiving.
We took in a lot of information this morning and we still are trying to handle it. God Bless Dave
