Wendy's parents are in town. It's been hard to show fake faces as if nothing were wrong. I wasn't ready to tell anyone what was going on.

This morning I got a phone call from Dr. Cohen's office while I was eating breakfast on the back patio with Wendy's parents. The nurse told me some of the biopsy results were in and it was definitely cml. I can't think of a better day than Friday the 13th to be officially diagnosed with cancer.

If you read through the forums on the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, every one seems to announce their diagnosis date as if it were some kind of badge. Well, my badge is 6/13/08. I officially have leukemia. I'm officially a cancer patient.
