Welcome to my CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. I appreciate your  love and support.  As many of you know, I've had 2 types of blood disorders for many years.   One of these disorders caused chronic low white blood cells (the cells that fight infection).  I found out 2 weeks ago that this disorder had progressed into a rare form of chronic leukemia called CMML (chronic myelomonocystic leukemia).  Without treatment this will progress fairly quickly into a fatal type of acute leukemia.  The treatment for this only works less than 50% of the time, and is only temporary. The only chance for a cure is a bone marrow transplant,  and that is what I'm doing.   I've laid out the steps in the process in the journal.  We'll keep you updated. Thanks, Susan
