Yesterday I visited my Friend Richard in the hospital. He was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma, and although he’s going to be a-okay, he started a pretty unappetizing smorgasbord of tests and treatment. Yesterday was his first day of chemotherapy, and he took it like a champ! He joked around with his friend Nelson and I, and scarfed down a plate of Chinese food between drug treatments. At the risk of sounding like a hippie, Richard has an amazing spirit. With his wonderful attitude he’s going to be back on his feet in no time. Good luck, Richard, and we all hope you’re feeling better soon!
