Dec 29, 2019 · B-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (B-PLL) in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I'm sorry to say, Barbara passed away early this morning. It's the end of an era. She was a beautiful lady, had a kind heart, and was adored by all who knew her. She's going to be missed. Please carry on this blog that she started. Hopefully, some day there will be a cure. Robin.
Barbara J.- 11/28/1931-12/29/2019

Thank you both for your messages which I've relayed to Barb. She's resting now. Her youngest granddaughter, husband, and brood of 3 have arrived from Oregon and will come to the house around midday. Some of the fixin's are in the fridge already so all they have to do is heat up things and celebrate the day. It's nice that everyone has time off to visit, as they're out of town and have work and young families. She hopes you all have an enjoyable Christmas. Robin.

Dear Ann, Barbara is in Hospice care now. She's no longer getting infusions. The poking and prodding with needles weren't helping her so she said that was enough. Her relatives are coming over for Christmas (some from Oregon) and she'll be having whatever they bring for dinner. She's put in an order for stuffing and cranberries, and dessert, as well as some real food! She's sleeping now and I don't want to awaken her, but I'll tell her that I've written to you. Hope she won't be upset with my telling you what's happening here. She's well-cared for and is as comfortable as can be expected. I know she wishes you well. I'll check in again soon. Robin.

Hello, Ann. Robin here. Barbara had a little setback and wound up at Kaiser for 6 days. She's home now, but with full-time in-home care. If I could get her to her computer, I'd get her to type a few lines. She's busy gabbing with one of the caregivers who just came on shift! Everyone is helping her with cooking, laundry, bathing, etc., and just keeping an eye on things. That's what she's needed for the past year, but I'm unable to be around that often. Well, can't get her to do any typing right now so I'm going to sign off. Hope you're doing well.

This is Robin, answering for Barbara. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Barb had her 88th birthday yesterday, along with the Thanksgiving meal her granddaughter brought over. Maybe we'll eat some leftovers in a while. There's not much sense in trying to get her account working again. I can log on with my account and she can either dictate what she wants to write, or she can cruise over to the computer while I'm logged on and write any updates she has. She's napping right now so I'd rather not disturb her. Later this evening she'll probably read your post. Glad your treatment is going well.

Hi. I'm Barbara's friend. She's been unable to access her account, but didn't want you to think she was not trying to respond. She's OK, but says her laptop is sick! Send any comments or correspondence to me and I'll just read them to her. (I'm on her computer anyway.) She hopes you're doing well and getting some treatments that are working. Robin
