2 years.

By the time you read this, hopefully I’ll be in the air on my way to Texas to see Bryan. Of course, this is barring any major snowfall that is currently expected in Dallas (major for Texas anyway). One flight of mine has already been canceled, so we had to change flights. We shall see.

Today is the 2 year anniversary of my CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) diagnosis. Still not sure some days how I feel about it and other days it doesn’t even cross my mind. Bryan asked me the other day, what you get someone on this type of anniversary and I figure nothing. It is not a landmark event in my book, although I suppose it should be. I have lived 2 years with a terminal illness and my current prognosis is good.

So, can I take back that reply of nothing?!

I would like a full body massage while laying on a beach in Hawaii, sipping some fruity drink. Sound good? Worthy of this anniversary?

I think so :).

    I did not reaize that your type of cancer was terminal until I read this. :( I wish I could think of something to say that was meaningful or helpful in some way, but just know that I will be praying for you and Jacey and Bryan.

    As far as taking it back, I say that your position as a female allows you to be a little fickle here and there. :) And, gosh, I wish I were in Hawaii right now…it’s WAY too cold here!!!

    At any rate, I hope you have fun in Texas, and I can’t wait for all of us to get together when you get back.

    Oh, and I agree with Mary–fabulous and strong, most definitely. You are also one of the most creative people I’ve known, well I ‘know’ you online :) You take some AMAZING pictures to boot!!!
