4 Years

I just looked at my watch and noticed that date. It has been 4 years since I was diagnosed with CML. It is sort of amazing to me how little I think of this anymore. I do have to go to Dana-Farber next week. Four years ago, I could only imagine myself as a cancer patient. Now, cancer plays only a minor role in my life play. Thank you Gleevec!

I am grateful that I have had such luck in this fight and that CML has not become my life. I owe a lot to my family and friends who have supported me through this whole process. This diagnosis was probably a lot harder on them than it was on me.

I vividly recall that awful night 4 years ago when I got the call about my white blood count. I had just walked into the house with Chinese food. I never did get to eat that soup.
