Four years ago today I was diagnosed with APL.
Four month months later I was in remission.
28 months later I was done with chemotherapy and medication.
In 16 months the medical community and insurance companies will consider me “cured”.
The whole thing was an interesting experience. I know I changed significantly from the experience. Today I am relaxed and in the moment. I get more enjoyment out of the day to day than I can ever remember. Okay those summers in the 70’s being a free and curious kid roaming the neighborhood on a bicycle were pretty awesome.
