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.
