Who Knew

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia is a very slow moving disease. So much so that people can be diagnosed in the very early stages but not need treatment for years. When I was diagnosed 10 years ago the disease could have been progressing for years prior to detection. One of the first questions that my doctor asked [...]

2016 Chemo Round 2, Day 2

And BOOM, another round is in the books. I hit the rack pretty early last night after a full day of treatment and believe it or not actually got a little rest. I drifted off and on because the steroid decadron had me racing but I quieted myself enough to feel rested. Then bounced up [...]

Whatever Normalcy Is

I’m gradually realizing that I really don’t like the side effects associated with my treatment meds. Fatigue and shortness of breath with activity are not exactly conducive to supporting a running and multisport lifestyle. I know the effects from the treatment are temporary. And I’m thankful that they are indeed working. This is evidenced by [...]
