Albany’s rent proposals will put
building contractors out of work.
Albany’s rent proposals will make it impossible for many property owners to afford to
maintain and improve their buildings – the majority of which are over 70 years old.
That means thousands of electricians, plumbers and other contractors who work in
these buildings will be out of work. Albany should protect these jobs.

my battles with breast cancer and
a blood disorder. I’m hoping not,
but we may need to march again.
I went for my yearly mammogram/ultrasound a few weeks ago.
After the procedures, the reviewing doctor indicated that the tests
were normal/benign. However, my breast tissue is dense and because
of this density, it can be hard to nd cancer on a mammogram and
could also be associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Her
suggestion was that I have a breast MRI. In the next month or so,
I will meet with my oncologist and we’ll discuss the test. I’m not
too happy about this: during my testing before the lumpectomy in
2014, I went for this MRI and ended the test before we even began.
It was uncomfortable and my body wouldn’t conform to the table,
etc. I said to the technician: “We are done here,” slid o the table
and marched into the changing room!
I frequently have blood work to monitor the erythrocytosis (red
blood count). In 2017 the numbers were too high and I had a phle-
botomy each month. at was a tough road: I’d no sooner get my
strength back and it was again time to give blood. One of my medical
team suggested that maybe nocturnal oxygen would bring the number
down. I began that treatment in December 2017 and haven’t had a
phlebotomy since. Fast forward to last week’s blood test: red blood
count was high. No phlebotomy was prescribed; I have an appoint-
ment for the beginning of July for a re-check, and I pray the number
will be lower and no further procedure will be required.
When I get more results and decisions on these issues, I will let
you know; please keep the thoughts and prayers coming. Hopefully,
we can keep Ruthie’s Brigade at parade rest!
Hope you enjoy this little aside: I am a White Plains gal and
