    I finally go my white count above 4.5!!! My onocologist wa making a jke about it cuz here was more to the story. When he started reading the report, he went ' I got good news an I got bad news' I sat there with my daughter confused an getin scared. 'you are in remssion. you white count is 5.4.' In my head I was screaming 'YEAH!!!!' 'now the bad news is, you have an infection. Its in your larynx, they are swollen.' But I am in remission...... I WILL TAKE IT!!!! But when I asked if I could go back to work, the reply was 'do you really want to go back to work?' I am having trouble getting disability, so it might mean yes I need to go back to work. I need to pay bills. Cancer an chemo have left me with more problems than I had before them. I am not sure what to do anymore.
