    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I had been feeling quite sick for over a year now. Doctors had been unable to help me and it felt as though they might just not be looking for the rights things. Finally, I found a doctor that was able to help me. Unfortunately he did not bear quite the news I was looking for. Diagnosis was devastating, but the most devestating part is seeing the affects that it has had on my family.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    This round is effecting me more than ever. I have barely been able to get out of bed, I am so weak. There are so many things that I want to do but I don't have the energy to do anymore.

    External radiation

    Radiation

    Radiation wasn't as bad as I had imagined, which I guess is a good thing.

    Medicine for low white blood cell count

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My white blood cell count had dramatically fell. I've been put on hospice care, so at least it is nice to be home. But unfortunately they have dropped to low to continue with any chemotherapy or radiation.
