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.
