Lieutenant Governor Facing Job of Lifetime

February 5, 2006 - Posted at 2:40 p.m. CST

SEATTLE (AP) _ Lieutenant Governor Win Rockefeller is carrying

out his job of a lifetime -- taking care of his health as he

prepares for another bone marrow transplant. Rockefeller is in

Seattle in the care of physicians there. He's had one bone marrow

transplant for a life-threatening illness and is waiting for

another one. He's lost weight and his hair but his spirits are

still good. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Rockefeller

remains upbeat. The lieutenant governor announced last summer that

he was getting out of the governor's race because of his illness.
