    Three years ago (Jan.6, 2008) I was diagnosed with CLL, a type of Leukemia. I had to have my spleen removed as it was very enlarged and full of cancerous cells (they took my gallbladder, too, because it was full of gallstones). I took six rounds of chemo and am still doing biological (immune) treatments. Before this I had never been in the hospital or seriously ill. The whole experience has been difficult, but I feel lucky to be in remission and very grateful for my DH, family and friends.

    What a good New year report. :-)
    Keep focusing on this rather than the problem and may your future be brighter each and every day.
