It’s Back.

It’s hard for me to say it but yes, my leukemia has relapsed. Three weeks ago, I noticed some bumps on my chest, thinking nothing of it when we left for Hawaii. After we got back from our trip my doctors had the bumps biopsied. We got the test results yesterday and it is Leukemia Cutis, a manifestation of the disease in the skin, which usually precedes and full-blown systematic relapse.  It is very rare, as it is only found in about 3% of Leukemia patients. I will be undergoing another induction chemotherapy to get me back into remission, lasting 30 days, give or take a few. This will start on Monday the 18th. I will be at OHSU hospital this time so please keep the comments coming the love and the support helps tons! I will update more once I know what the game plan will be. Take care and think positive!
