End of year levels....

I got my end of year levels results and they are still good! WBC is 7.5 (normal is 4.8-10.8, and my first reading was 278). Red Blood Cells, Hemoglobin, and Platelets are all normal. While that news is great, what really pleases me is that my Leukemia no longer dominates conversation during family time. Over xmas, with all the family present, there was about 10 seconds of talk about it. I am now getting to the point where I realize how lucky I am to be responding well to the medication and sometimes, it even seems surreal that I have a very serious disease. Thank god for modern medicine!

Happy New Year!


  1. What a great way to end the year -- with good results!

  2. Smack dab in the middle. Sometimes it's good to be mediocre.

  3. I am always edified by folks who face serious challenges like the one you face and yet continue to live life on its' bright and positive side...Thanks!
