Am new to the group & just found out last night that my 56 yr old mother was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. Am still in shock but am trying to pull myself together & help support her. It makes things worse as she lives in Nebraska & I'm in Texas. I want to go give my mom hug! She's also a type 2 diabetic who has had 2 lap band surgeries...

Anyways ... she'll be seeing her oncologist for the first time tomorrow & already knows that she's got a LOT of testing ahead of her. Just hope her insurance covers it! She & my father have said that they don't want this news bandied about ... but I just HAVE to get these feelings out of my system so I can stay strong for both of them. Am hoping I've found a safe place to vent, find support, & maybe even provide some support...

So I work to learn & change & grow & become the person that I want to be.
