    You are exactly right. Very busy with life. Busy with my family, job, business and hobbies. Retiring in June so I have lots to do between now and then. Staying so busy keeps my mind occupied. Hope all is well.

    You will never - I repeat: NEVER - regret retiring.

    To the best of my knowledge I am still NED. I had blood work done back in March. High white cell, old blood, ECT. I took a round of strong antibiotics because we thought it was a possible sinus infection. Two month later we retested and all my previous high points of concern were corrected. There was a much more than normal amount of stress during that two months.

    I am a long way from slowing down my lifestyle. We are really busy with family and our business. Hopefully within the next 6 months I will get in a more relaxed life style. Now I am still in that weekend rush mode.

    Just wanted to touch base and ask any nhfl or lymphoma patients if they get almost constant calls and emails about Roundup lawsuits? Lawyers call me almost daily. Somehow they found me in a nhfl database somewhere and got my home and cell phone numbers. I have never been involved in conversation about this with any lawyer. I never read the news ads about the lawsuits against the chemical companies. Yes, I have used lots of the weedkiller. More than anyone you know due to it being part of my job assignments for several years and in my own business needs. I wonder if somehow these lawyers know this as part of my medical records? I have never spoken with any of them. They leave lots of messages and even robo call messages. This has been going on for about a year. I am not interested in trying to sue anyone, just wanted to know if anyone else has had this happen?

    1. Very good to hear from you.
    2. Nope. Not a peep. T-Cell patients are apparently like the weeds that Roundup kills.
    3. The sharks always circle when there's blood in the water.
    4. I know that the cancer world is a hard thing to dwell on, or to re-enter, but do check in as you have been doing.
    5. Still getting positive comments on my walking stick!
