Gov. Larry Hogan Wednesday said he is “getting lots of work done” despite a nearly five-day round of chemotherapy treatment for non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Hogan expanded on his treatment in a post on his Facebook Page:
“Not only am I doing great, but I’m getting things done from the hospital. I’ve had meetings, made tons of calls, caught up on paperwork, reviewed recommendations, made decisions, appointed several hundred individuals, and reviewed proposed budget reductions in every agency,” Hogan wrote in a caption accompanying a photo of Hogan at the University of Maryland Medical Center along with his wife Yumi Hogan and daughter Jaymi Sterling.
Earlier this month Hogan announced he had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and would begin treatment almost immediately. The chemotherapy treatments started this week are the first of roughly six he will receive over an 18-week period.
Hogan, in announcing his diagnosis, said he intended to continue to work throughout his treatment.
Hogan yesterday announced an appointment of a new director of the state Department of Assessments and Taxation.
A Board of Public Works meeting scheduled for today was cancelled and rescheduled for later in the month.
Hogan expects to be released from the hospital sometime on Wednesday.
