Great news!

So, Mike’s results have come back, and he remains in remission from cancer. He will continue on the same chemo regimen for another year until he is rechecked. But his last infusion for lymphoma will be in June. This is the drug that suppresses his immune system, and it won’t be out of his system until early next year. Thus, unless something changes, he will remain isolated until next February. But…there is a new product coming out, monoclonal antibody infusions, from Astra-Zenica, which will give the recipient immunity if they can’t take the vaccine or respond to the vaccine. The product will be in short supply, so he may well not get a chance to take it. If he gets it you may see him out to eat or having coffee with friends.

The holidays are over, and were celebrated quietly but effectively at our house. The cats always love to play with the dangling cat toys that Mike and Judy put on the tree, until we get chased out of the room. We hope you all had a blessed holiday season, and that none of you got too sick. One of Mike’s friends lost his wife after a miserable battle with cancer. And, it has been quite a time for many notable personages to move on to the next stage: Sidney Poitier, Betty White, Bob Dole, Peter Bogdanovich, and others who I am forgetting right now. May all who are grieved be comforted.

I posted it last time, but in case you missed it, my book website is So far no news about the progress or lack thereof on publication of Mike’s book about the 12 steps and the Heroic Journey.

It was ridiculously cold here today, which restricted my outdoor activities. I hear that people father north got bitterly cold weather and lots of snow. Bundle up, y’all! Stay warm and well. I hope to write again soon. Until then, so long from Happy Meadows.

Author: Black Magic

Black Magic is a handsome, charming, and self-absorbed cat who lives with Mike and Judy Gordon in Marietta, Georgia. He is about 7 years old, and he will remind you at every opportunity that his grandfather was Black Jack, that famous cat who wrote his own autobiography. Black Magic has a great many opinions, and despite his natural feline arrogance, he seems to be genuinely spiritual. But the reader can decide for him/herself.

  1. Yes! Yes! Yes! So excited to hear you continue to be in remission. Yeah!!! ???? on the monoclonal antibody infusion ☺️

  2. Wonderful news that Mike remains in remission and pray he will continue to be so. Also, it would be happy news if he will have a shorter period of quarantine as it would be very special for those of us who know and love him to be physically with him for coffee or a meeting.

    Sorry to learn of the passing of the passing of his friend’s wife.

    Really enthused about his book and hope for early release.

    Cold up here in NC!

  3. Oh, Glory day! I am so happy to hear this news! I haven’t been checking in as much as I used to. I have happy news Dr. G
    I finally married my soul mate and my best friend on November 6,2021. You know who it is. The one who put me back together piece by piece with God’s help following my previous abusive relationship. It took me 5 years to get here and I’m so eternally grateful to you for giving me the courage to change after 20 years. You will always hold a special part of my heart for getting me through the misery. Keith is a Godly man that makes our bond even stronger. Thank you for Kim Richards as she continues in my journey. I’m so happy you are in remission! Praise God for His miracles and His mercy. Gratitude always,
    Stephanie (McDonald) Davis 🙏🕊🌿✝️😊
