She's Got the Wine for the Chuck Wagons

Clarksburg vintner Patty Bogle is sounding upbeat as she looks forward to next week's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, even if she has to catch events on television from her room at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where she is undergoing treatment for acute myeloid leukemia.

She reports her white blood-cell count is down, her third round of chemotherapy looks to have taken hold, and that a donor for a stem-cell transplant has been found. That procedure is another four or five weeks off. She's posting progress reports on her CarePage, where family, friends, neighbors and colleagues in the wine trade also are adding their support to a board that is nearing 400 messages.

To visit her CarePage, go here. For colleague Lakiesha McGhee's Bee report on Patty Bogle and a Valentine's Day drive in Clarksburg for blood donations and bone-marrow registration for her, go here.
