Welcome back! I'm sorry for the break in posts. Things have been a little crazy around here.
Why? Because I relapsed. But it's kind of good news? This is pretty weird guys. I've been getting radiation to my brain for the past couple of weeks and apparently it isn't a big deal. What???? I was devastated at first, obviously, hence the not posting on the blog thing, but I guess it just isn't that bad of news. I saw my doctor yesterday and he seemed to think that the radiation I'm getting will kick my tumor to the ground and then he wants to take a break from chemo in general (which he had been talking about before I relapsed). I guess I'm just a little confused as to how this isn't really changing anything except adding radiation to my treatment plan. And a little confused because of the tumor in my brain. It's smaller now so I can process things better, but I had a rough few days at the beginning.
So the good news is that life continues probably as usual. Which is weird, because having a tumor in your brain is such a big deal, except that for me it isn't?
I guess otherwise I don't really know what to write except that I'm still trying to process all of this and process it in a good way that's positive and all. I mean, guys, look at my life - gut leukemia, brain leukemia, and it isn't a big deal? WTH???!!!!
On the other hand, the weather has been freezing but we did get snow. Yay! I love snow.
Hope you're all getting ready well for the holidays, and I'll see you all back here soon.
