Leukemia Day 4

Well went to work like I usually do but I seem to get so tired so quick. And I am always getting headaches.I wish it was time for the ct scan so I could find out more.

Leukemia Day 3

Well it is now day three of my Leukemia and still scared of what they will find on the ct scan.Trying not to say much to my grandson he has it kinda bad not having his mom around do not want him to think I will not be here either. We lost my mom to cancer about 13 years ago and my baby sister(Amy) we are very close and she is not handling this well so trying to keep smiling a lot


Yesterday, March 10, 2008 I found out I have Leukemia. I am 48 years old and not ready for all this I have to see a specialist yet to find out which one I have.I think I just need to vent about it so maybe I will add more as things happen.

Well I went to the UPMC Cancer Center today and found out that normal white blood counts are between 4000 and 10,000 and mine is 132,000 so I have Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia which sounds worse then it is. I have to have a ct scan to find out how bad my lymph nodes are but they think I only have to have one week of chemo and I will not lose my hair. wow so happy about that lol.So i feel alot better now.I am trying to raise my 10 year old grandson so I really don't have time to be sick. Thanks for listening
