10 Minutes

A lot can happen in 10 minutes when you're stuck in a hospital bed:

One day at a time often becomes one minute at a time.

  1. Hello,
    I'm terribly sorry that you have Leukemia. My own mother has the same type of Leukemia you have (ALL). She was diagnosed on April first of this year. Was hoping the doc would have said April fools but no such luck!

    My mother was in and out of the hospital for the past eight months and she can totally relate to this cartoon! However, she never had a problem with no pooh since she had a stomach infection that made her go all the time the docs finally put her on the correct antibiotics.

    My mother was on the Hyper-CVAD chemo protocol and is going to be starting maintenance chemo sometime soon. She tolerated the chemo pretty well, though they gave her a medicine called Emend that knocked out any nausea before it even started. She was always a very energetic person but now she gets frustrated at how easy she gets tired.

    I know this is a long and difficult time for you but I hope it will get easier with time. My mother was able to cope with everything easier later on, still not easy but it gets a little easier. I like to show your cartoons to my mother, she really likes them and can understand completely how you feel.
