Our life with acute myeloid leukemia

Just a diary I'm keeping after we found out on 9th June 2010 (our baby's first birthday) that my other half has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and how we get by (hopefully I'll be better with this than I am with a diary :giggle: )

Yet another waiting game

Permanent Linkby 0_Lisa_0 on Fri Sep 24, 2010 7:51 pm

So this time it's me. Today I went to see the doctor about being tested for Huntington's disease, which runs in my family. I actually came away feeling much better about it, not for myself, I can live with that, for me not knowing is worse than anything else. For the fact that apparently while it is unlikely there is anything that can be done if I have it, it is quite likely that, should Austin get the disease, there will be some sort of treatment. The dr I saw today was much better than any other dr I think I have ever had. He didn't pussy foot about it, he was honest when he told me that it was unlikely they could do anything for me (not what I had gone in for anyway and I didn't expect that they could) and I think I just liked the fact he was brutally honest about how awful a disease it is (something I am already aware of). I think I'm just glad that he did the referral for me and that I might be getting some answers soon.
