8 Years

It is hard to believe, but it was 8 years ago today that I was diagnosed with CML. Fortunately, as you can tell by my lack of blog entries, there is not too much to report. Last year, I had a bit of a scare as my PCR numbers went up for the first time in many years. As I readjusted my CML medication and cholesterol meds, everything returned to normal. The interaction between the two was apparently helping me. Since then, things have been stable and normal.

I am thankful that CML is not something I think about every day. I am thankful that Gleevec exists and works wonderfully. I am also thankful to the wonderful doctors whose life mission is to cure and treat this disease. Finally, I am thankful for my family and friends for all the support I have received as I have dealt with this diagnosis.
