He received testing on February 14th at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. The testing involved biopsy of a lymph node and biopsy of bone marrow. The lymph node was positive for Hodgkin’s disease.

I agree that the treatment makes you feel very ill. I cannot imagine being able to work during treatment. I did nothing but sleep all day.

If someone like Swann runs and by God's grace wins the Governor's seat, I think the senate seat will stay in Santorum's hands. Granted the elections will be simultaneous, but I think republican energy for a fresh face would spill over throughout the election.

Also, I don't see the kind of democratic turnout for the '06 elections here, I think Rendell is aiming for a higher government seat and may not put 100% effort into his re-election. He needs to be hammered on the property tax issue, especially here in the western half of the state. He said it would be his first priority after the gambling issue. We haven't seen a hint of any property tax reform.
