Step 2 – Cancer

So me and my enlarged spleen went to the hematologist/oncologist for about a month and a half.  They ran tests, forgot to run tests, and ran tests again.  The diagnosis finally came in late November… hairy cell leukemia.  By this time I was taking a nap after getting ready in the morning, taking a nap in my car at work, taking a nap before dinner and going to bed around 7pm.  I was BEAT!

The CFO kept saying “I bet you have cancer.”  Well, at the end, she was right.  I thank God that it is a VERY treatable form of Leukemia.  The doctor had one last test to run to confirm it… a bone marrow biopsy.  This is one of the areas where the medical profession is not 100% truthful all the time.  The word “uncomfortable” has many meanings.  Luckily my Oncologist is a great Doctor and a great guy.  He said “you know what uncomfortable is… something that is happening to you, not me” 🙂

Know what you call the Dr. who graduates last in their class?… Doctor.
