A little less than a month ago my Mom’s older sister was diagnosed with leukemia, they were running a bunch of tests to see if she could handle the heavy duty chemo that they wanted to give her. During that time they found out that the strain that she has is generally treated well with a much more mild chemo and some arsenic so they decided to do that. Everything was looking as good as we could have hoped, until she woke up and couldn’t see. When they were getting ready to operate on her eyes to try to fix the problem they discovered two things 1) her platelet count was too low 2) the leukemia had spread to her brain. She decided today that she didn’t want to continue the treatment. She gave up. It’s too soon, I just lost my mother a little over a year ago and now my Aunt too? I’m angry, I’m scared but most importantly I’m devastated.
Sorry if no one wanted to read about this, I just needed to get it off my chest.
