Today I learned I have the same leukemia (CLL) as my mother. I guess it does run in the family. Mine is at a low level, not like I’m going to drop dead of it tomorrow. Most of the cysts and -cytes were benign or not too enlarged, and my white count is only slightly high. My giblets are OK! There’s not a lot they can do, other than monitor it. So that was anticlimactic. Now back to bed to nurse this cold from hell.
