The whirlwind ...

Hello readers!

I know it might seem like I dropped off the face of the earth, but I assure you, I'm still here, despite a very scary health scare less than six weeks ago.

As many of you know, I have leukemia, which I've been fighting since August and for which I will have completed eight months of treatment in just a couple of days. Not long after my last post, I started to get very sick. I started having very serious pain in my right side that wouldn't go away, a lot of digestive issues, nausea, vomiting, and was just not feeling well. It was probably the sickest I've ever felt. Most of the pain was in my right side. Naturally, we started thinking it might be appendicitis and on Monday, March 17, I was taken to the ER.
