Update on my status and the down web site:

The initial round of chemo knocked down the leukemia fairly well but I will need to go through additional treatments before qualifying for a bone marrow transplant.  I was released from the hospital last night and finally had good night's sleep… anyone who has ever spent a night in a hospital knows exactly what I mean!  Next week I start meeting with the leukemia team at HUP (Hospital of University of Pennsylvania) to work out the next step in the treatment plan.  During my stay I did write a lot of 6502 code with a KIM Clone in my room, and played around a lot with an LCD panel for the Arduino.  Ie, I never resorted to binge watching TV :-)

Of course, when it rains it pours, and I got an email from my web hosting provider saying the Corsham Tech WordPress site was hacked so they disabled the web page.  I hope to start debugging those problems this weekend.  Health concerns are first but I do have time now to actually work on fun stuff again.
