In case anyone still can’t believe this is happening. Yep. I have Leukemia.
Oh. Maybe it was just me then.
Thank you for your words of support and questions and swearing. I particularly enjoyed the imaginative swearing. I couldn’t respond to every comment because then I run the risk that my “I have Leukemia” post will top the chart of most popular posts on this blog. Really, that sickens me a bit.
So, instead I will respond to here:
From Laura: “Seriously? WTF?”
Yes, seriously. I do not know WTF is going on either. I wish I did.
From Heather: “I am so sorry to hear of your leukemia diagnosis…last thing you needed, right?”
Totally agree. May had surgery two weeks ago. I would question the sanity of anyone who thinks this is God’s plan – even I’m not this disorganized.
From Cassie: “If you have any questions about the joys of being sick as an adult, don’t hesitate to ask.”
Thank you Cassie, your comment was very helpful (and please read the original post to see it). I don’t have any questions right now, but mainly because I am drowning in a river in Egypt.
From oneoffordinary: “I hope you have lots of support and love to help you through this.”
I do! My MIL is staying with us. She originally came up to help during May’s surgery. She never left. She is unbelievable, and words can not express how awesome she has been. She even ironed my t-shirts before sending them back to the hospital so they would be softer for me. That’s how kind she is.
Also, my mother is coming back in town on Thursday. And, our superhero social worker has increased our careworker hours from 16 to 36 a week. Not to mention the gazillion offers from friends and colleagues.
And finally to several commenters:
Kristen: “Those stupid blood cells that are misbehaving will rue the day they tried to mess with you!”
Sarah: “Wishing you all kinds of strength, and for the leukemia to be kicked squarely in the face”
Kelly: “Kick leukemia’s a$$”
Yes. Leukemia’s ass is grass.
And, please send more violent descriptions of just how Leukemia will suffer. That would please me.
