Well Friends, here's the deal. Kendra was feeling pretty run down so she went to her Doctor. Her white blood cell counts were a little elevated so they wanted to do some more testing. After a couple days her white cell count had increased pretty significantly. It was determined that she had Chronic Lymphoma Leukemia and set up an appointment for 3 weeks later as CLL is a very slow growing form of Cancer. While she was on the phone with her Doctor another pathology report came in. It turns out she has Acute Lymphoma Leukemia which has a very fast growth rate. The Doctor told her she needed to get to the hospital right away. Tomorrow they are starting with a very aggressive Chemo, a Lumbar Puncture and checking her Bone Marrow. Three weeks ago Kendra was walking 5 miles a day at 10,000 feet of elevation. This came out of the blue and the last couple days have been a real fog but tomorrow the sun will come up and we'll start to kick some ass.
