My husband is 36 and was diagnosed with CML (he was in the blastic phase) in December 19, 2008 (2 days before our youngest daughter turned 1). We went to the doctor because he had a sore throat and found out his white count was 90,000. It has been a roller coaster ride ever since our family has been thru sooo much, I had a cyst removed from my brain in 2005, then my husband was in a work accident where a steel plate hit him in the face shattering his orbital socket and giving him permanent brain damage in 2006. It seems that hes in the hospital more than hes home. He just went through his 4th round of chemo and when he came home he ended up with a fever and was jaundice so I had to bring him back to the hospital. I see the changes he goes through when hes been through chemo and when hes done and my heart breaks. There are times when hes soo angry and Im the one that gets the brunt of it all. Im hoping this website will help me to find words of wisdom to help me help my husband. If you have information that could help me please let me know I feel at such a loss.
