He’s been diagnosed with leukaemia.
Immediately admitted to hospital, started treatment. The chemo starts Monday (we think).
All in all I think we’ve dealt with the initial shock pretty well. Have spoken to more people (friends and family) in the last 48 hours than ever before.
And now it’s 5:30am and I’ve barely slept – I’m not particularly upset or stressed about anything particular, it’s just my brain is much too active. And I’m calm now, but worried about how I can survive tomorrow (today) on basically no sleep…
i know I’m rambling. Sorry about that. we’ve got a long road ahead of us…

I’m soooo sorry to hear about this…I have a few family members that were diagnosed and it was incredibly hard to deal with…but there is always hope 🙂
I will light a candle for you both! Hang in there…you both will make it through this.

Thank you 🙂 His prospects are really good (he has a very treatable form and is in good physical condition at the start of treatment).
I am pretty good at being “strong and supportive” on a short term basis, but am worried about trying to maintain it long term. He’s the strong one and now I need to watch him suffer through the horrible treatment.

I am sorry to hear this. My thoughts and hopes are with you. If you don’t mind, may I ask what form he has? I worked in Oncology for a few years.

So incredibly sorry to hear this. It must be very difficult.
It’s great that you guys have a supportive network around you. It’ll be really helpful – for him and you.
I’ve heard there are some nutrition changes that can also be beneficial – helping the body heal and all that. Maybe worth looking into in conjunction with his treatments? I’ve heard amazing stories.
My thoughts are with you.

I’m so very sorry. 🙁 Just take it day-by-day, stay strong and always keep positive. Don’t let the darkness and negativity win.
I’m sending many, many, many positive thoughts your way! **hugs**

Thank you everyone. Have survived pretty well today considering not sleeping at all last night! And he’s “settling” into the hospital. The staff are totally lovely.
I am a regular (ish) poster, but my main account links to my blog and other online personas. This is too personal to be on it.

So many hugs to you right now. You are truly in my thoughts and in my prayers.
