Aunt Marva Lee just called me with an update on Phil to pass along. The type of Leukemia he has is Lymphocytic Leukemia. He will have blood tests tomorrow (Monday) to determine the stage of the disease and what avenues of treatment should be pursued. He hopes to have the results by Wednesday.
Phil is in hopeful spirits and has a good attitude going into this. Remember, the Leukemia was found during a physical and not because of any symptoms. The doctor has told him many people discover they have the disease the same way and not because they are feeling bad. We can certainly be thankful that he is not feeling bad.
I will post more updates as I get them. Do also keep Aunt Marva Lee and Uncle Phillip in your prayers as this has rattled them pretty well.
