Just got a PM request for an update on Jo. So, here goes.
She has completed all chemo treatments and is progressing nicely. Her strength is beginning to return, although not as rapidly as she would like.
She still has a while to wait for her hair to return, but she is OK with that. From now on, it is a waiting game. She is taking a daily medication that will continue for five years.
Through all of this she has maintained an absolutely positive attitude, to the point that more than one member of the medical team treating her has made comments about her attitude and a couple of them said they would like to "clone" her.
Bottom line: I'M ONE VERY BLESSED DUDE!!!!!!
