My husband has had leukemia (cml) for 4 years now. He's been in remission for 3 years.
The journey has been full of so many emotions. We've cried together, when he was diagnosed. We held each other when he was hospitalized to get his white count down. I cried alone out in the hallways of the hospital. We rejoiced together when his counts started dropping. My heart broke for him when he had go through the pain of the side effects of his chemo. He has alot of daily struggles because he has to take a chemo pill everyday. Not only is is very expensive, which to soooo frustrating to us ($4600 a month). He cannot tolerate cold or any kind of strenous activity because it caused severe cramping in his hands, feet, legs and sides. He gets down because he was so healthy before all this but he is alive. Sometimes he's not happy, he struggles, but even when he's at his worst, I just look at him and think, Thank God You Are Still Here!!
All in all.....we both say "It's worth it".
