Hello friends!

My wife and I at our son's wedding, September 2011

By way of annual exam, in 2010 I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer.  In 2011 I had successful robotic surgery and was headed down the road to recovery.  A few months later I was diagnosed with another, unrelated cancer, Multiple Myeloma.  I started letting some friends know through email what was going on.  With each update, the mailing list grew.  My son suggested I create a blog instead of sending out emails, so here we go.
