Have you ever have one of those days where you just wanted to go back to bed and crawl under the covers and hide from the world hoping that no one would find you?  Today was one of those days for me.

It started when I got on the scales this morning.  Another 2 pounds gained.  It’s tough seeing weight that you’ve already lost appear back on the scale.  Where’s the encouragement to keep going if all you do is see is weight added back to the scale even making sure that you’ve stuck to your exercise program and your diet.  Oh well, I’m going to keep going.  Don’t really have a choice but to keep going.

What really made me want to hide from the world was the phone call I got from my oncologist this morning.  If you’ve been following this blog long you will remember that I’ve got CML, a form of Leukemia.  When I was first diagnosed my blood levels were at 133%.  Six months ago at my last appointment my blood levels were down to .05%.  A very good report indeed.  Not today however, my levels went up to .65%.  I go back to my oncologist in two weeks for more blood work then after that blood work comes back the doctor will make his decision as to what my next step will be.
