I am a Survivor
Hi I'm Courtney, I was diagnosed in late March of 2014 (I put an expert from a post I did about it below), I recently finished treatment ( 6/20/2016!!!) and am so excited to have a little breathing room again. Life has changed completely for me and some days I don't even know where to begin. A huge chunk of my life now is figuring out how to keep surviving and how I can one day help anyone who has to go through this in the future.
March 28th – doomsday, I received a frantic call from my doctor at 8am saying I needed to go to the ER right now, my blood counts were so low I could pass out at any second. So I freaked out, called my mom, found a ride (though I was just going to take an uber and not tell anyone), and ended in the ER. After more blood drawing and concerned looks when my blood counts were mentioned the ER doctor dropped the bomb – literally. Like a nuke. “You possible have leukemia” – I stopped listening after he said that, I literally thought I just needed blood and would be in and out. I didn’t think that my quick trip to the doctor the day before would end in a cancer diagnosis – does anyone though?
