Wondering what I got?
Went back to the blood specialist. Remember my blog back on March 5th about going to the specialist and getting ten viles of blood taken for testing? Well, yesterday I went back to the doctor to get the results. He told me that I had Chronic Myeloid Leukemia or CML for short. Look it up. There was some good news along with the bad. The bad news was that this disease will kill me. The good news is that I will probably die before it kills me. He said that survival rate is around 18 to 20 years. That would put me at 88 or 90. Heck, and here I thought that I could match my Dad's brother who made it to 100. Guess my uncle is going to win.
On the other hand, this has been the most beautiful week, weather wise, we have had in a long time. I couldn't be more perfect. The sky has been a very pretty blue with no clouds at all. I took a walk around my place the other day and everything is blooming and all the trees are green but. . . Sixbears said that he had a fifth season called the mud season. Well, we her in East Texas also have a fifth season, it is the yellow season. Everything is yellow. Everyone drives a yellow vehicle. If you stay outside too long you too will turn yellow. That is how bad the tree pollen is this time of year. The next bad season will come shortly. That is the love bug season in which your vehicle gets plastered with messy smelly love bugs as you drive down the road. Don't you just love Spring time? I do. Now you all have a great day today, you hear?
