Today’s Reality 9.25.2020

This is the first post in a series titled, Today’s Reality. The series will chronicle my journey to remission from Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). My outlook as I begin this new phase in my life and blog series is living in the moment in mind, body, and spirit. I am not angry. I refuse to be sad. I am determined to live a long life with love and peace in my heart with the confidence of a better tomorrow filled with joy and humor.

Monarch butterflies flooded our backyard this past August. I did not know their significance in my life at the time. Here is a post from my Facebook timeline from August 14th:

On Friday, September 25, 2020 at 11:00 a.m., I was diagnosed with leukemia after visiting the ER with what I thought was appendicitis. Here is my reflection from that day:

Today's Reality - Diagnosis 9.25.2020

among the char
dangling, a lone leaf
hugging a chrysalis
birthing its’ monarch
fragile wings
fluttering
flying
higher

her journey begins
