I had been suffering a few weeks from what I thought was just allergies and "season changes" (headaches, etc). Then I started seeing doctors, and taking pills that didn't do much. Meanwhile I got weaker and weaker.. I finally lost much of my vision, prompting a trip to the emergency room and leading to my diagnosis of leukemia a few weeks ago.
I'm in Iowa City, Iowa getting treatment (chemotherapy, etc). Recovery is slow going but I've been less of a vegetable last couple days, getting my strength back. My vision is still really bad but expected to improve in the coming weeks..
Friends and family are nearby and I'm in high spirits.
If you'd like to kick in some money to help out with expenses, everything will be very welcomed and the money well-spent.
If you just want to send me a message, the hospital will pass along all your messages. It'd be great to hear from you.
