It's possibly a record: I haven't posted here in over two weeks. I could blame Thanksgiving-related activities or the yard clean-up or blogging malaise, but the truth is simpler and better: I have nothing leukemia-related to report.
That's not to say I haven't had neurotic episodes here and there. Last week, I almost convinced myself that leukemia was making a beachhead in my mouth. You don't want to know that the disease can appear in your gums, and I'm not here to tell you this not-so-fun fact. I'll just mention that I noticed a few sores around my gumline and jumped to the worst conclusion possible.
Turns out I had a benign condition called gingivitis. It seems that the free CVS toothpaste I've been using does a poor job with tartar-control. That's what the dental hygenist told me yesterday.
The only leukemia I have right now resides in my hyperactive imagination. And that's where it's staying.
