I am just new to "blogging" but I need an outlet. Three and a half years ago my husband was diagnosed with AML, Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, and our life changed, but I can't say whether it was for the better or worse. There have been so many ups and down in the past 3 1/2 years, chemo, in remission, monthly checkup, trip to Alaska, out of remission, back in remission and on and on. Right now he is in remission and we are going to be going to M.D. Anderson for him to consult with them on having a stem cell transplant (SCT). I have made reservations for us to stay at an RV park 2 1/2 miles from M.D. Anderson and we are to check-in Wednesday but I cannot get him to say when we are leaving. I guess I'll just get the RV packed and be ready to leave on a moments notice.

Right now he is feeling good - maybe not his mental attitude - but hopefully that will improve, but I doubt it. So I do a lot of making quilts and quilting on my longarm machine for others.


  1. Being in remission is a good thing and that can only help improve the mental attitude. I can only imagine how tough this is to live with. Stay strong! (to both of you!)

  2. Blogging is a great outlet. Glad you will be coming to Houston. As Deanne said ... "stay strong!" Praying all goes well.
