Testing My New Blog – Post #1

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, I am checking into Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York on April 12 in order to have a stem cell transplant. The idea is do away with my myelofibrosis, a bone cancer I have had since 2011.  So I am setting up a blog now — my first! — to keep a record of this experience — and to spare my wife Sarah the need to update everyone, one at a time, all the time. I will still post articles, etc. on the website, but the medical stuff will be in the blog. So please watch this space — and I promise not to abuse the privilege, or your patience.

    Greetings, Lanny. Consider me another beta tester of the blog. Clean and functional — a place where substance will triumph over style. I think it’s also fair to say that you will not abuse your blogging privileges or our patience. Best regards, Rich.

    Hi Lanny. So glad you are able to undertake a new blog. Hope this therapy works wonders for you. We leave soon for China where I’m teaching oral history then traveling with Cathy for the rest of the month. I will post on my blog too; I think writing can help keep focus on what’s important and truly healing. Hope you get enough exercise and will be able to follow the Cardinals…
