Alexander,
I'm so sorry. This is not what any of us expect. Wow. You are in shock right now. I'm sorry, I can only imagine your feelings right now. But there is lots of hope.

You do have a battle ahead of you. But you can win it. I have a friend who did the whole thing - bone marrow transplant, etc. He is fine 10 years out. It was an ordeal, he was very sick, but now leads a perfectly normal life. You can do it. you aren't alone.
Paul

I know, that it's possible to beat it.
But yes, shock, maybe. To me it still sounds like I'm talking about someone else while I'm writing this? Like it's not really happening.. Like no way... It's JUST the flu. I'm alright! I'm alright, D*mn It.
But, I guess realisation will land soon enough..
It's like life is making sure I'm gonna be as miserable as possible, all the time, or something.

Thanks..

Alexander.

Got more news today..

It's acute lymphoblastic leukemia (excuse me for spelling :-) ).
They want me to go to the hospital tomorrow, starting chemo wednesday.
It's, but this can change at any time, 5 sessions of chemo for wich i will have to stay in the hospital for about 2 weeks for each session with in between each session about 2 or 3 weeks rest, at 'home'.
Then, probably, stam cell transplantation, then a few more chemo sessions.
That's the plan as of on this moment anyway.

I've posted a longer thread about this in the off topic section of the site.

I'm gonna be able to go online in the hospital, but not chat in the middle in the night anymore, obviously.

Greets,

Alexander

I'm sorry to hear about your illness. I will be praying for you as I'm sure that many of your friends here will be doing the same.

Alex, I already posted in off-topic, but you are a fighter, and you have all of us behind you.

It will be tough dealing with the lethargy, but try and think of the good times ahead.

Just dont give the nurses a hard time right!

Alexander,

I am sorry to hear of the cancer. Right now I am dealing with it with my wife. She has had chemo and radiation. There have been many advances lately in cancer treatments but I understand how devastating this news must be for you. I am keeping you in my thoughts.

Dale
