Just given the diagnosis of CLL less than a week ago after I'd asked for a blood test because of persistent tiredness; a high lymphocyte count was found, I am now on Watch and Wait.
God has a sense of humour giving me a cancer which seems to involve so much maths and science to understand it as these were my worst subjects at school.
My greatest fear is getting dementia as my grandmother, and aunt had a vile end from it and my 93 year old mother is now dying in a care home from it. With luck now with CLL, I shall be spared that.
I will hope for a long watch and wait and make sure I savour and enjoy all the beauty of the world.
