A little off

I’ve been going to my new oncologist with more frequency as he’s collecting datapoints to get a sense of where things stand with my Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (previously).

Today my bloodwork numbers were a little off, so we’re ratcheting up the alert system one notch. This means gathering more numbers and re-evaluating things. The good news is, after other recent tests, if I do need to start treatment I’ll likely fare well.

But I’m jumping the gun.

One thing I’ve learned after 25 years with cancer is that it’s best to acknowledge information (or lack thereof) and get back in the moment.

Make adjustments to be more present and realize that’s what you should have been doing all along.
