I went to the emergency room thinking I had a bad infection. After a blood test, the Doctor informed me I had a white cell count of 260,000 and had Leukemia. It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride since then. 26 days in the hospital and the highest dose of Chemo ever given in the state of Colorado(according to my oncologist)I am in remission! My second round of chemo (consolidation) wasn't to bad, I did get an infection and had to spend another 4 days in the hospital getting the usual IV Antibiotics, but all is well now. Scheduled to start round 3 on 5/10/10 and waiting on bone marrow donor. Needless to say I am a little scared of going through the transplant, I know that people can live for years in 'remission' and the transplant procedure can be pretty rough, even fatal! I know I'll do it, providing they find a match. But the thought of 4 months in the transplant center is costing me some sleep.
