Margo ailing

Margo, my wife of 40 years, has been having tests this week at Mayo Clinic.  The results show breast cancer with a possibility of having spread to some lymph nodes.  She has more test Friday and next week and it appears that she will begin treatment after that.  The treatment will start with chemotherapy.  More information as things happen.  She is handling it well.

Send her a note to margowh at and wish her good luck.

Update Monday July 23   -- tests show cancer in one breast spread to some lymph nodes.  More tests yet this week, visits with the treatment people and probably chemo starting in early August for 4 months, followed by surgery followed by radiation. She is taking it OK.  Generally we are quite optimistic that things will turn out fine after a long stretch of treatments.
