It's not Burkitt's after all
Life can be a funny thing. Just yesterday I began this blog and wrote about how Bobby has Burkitt's Lymphoma. Today my wife, Alice, took Bobby in to the oncologist for routine blood work. It turns out that Bobby does not actually have Burkitt's, but rather a Burkitt's-like cancer called Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma. It is still cancer, and it requires the same treatment as Burkitt's. I guess the only down-side is that Burkitt's was easier to say.
We have a website where we update how Bobby is feeling and progressing. We also discuss how our family is coping with these changes in our lives. If you would like to read more about it, please go to www.caringbridge.org/visit/bobbyc.
