Things I'm thankful for:

1. That my state has not shut down this summer

2. That, by my own advocating, my primary care appt that was gonna be canceled this summer, was kept (after having been canceled in April)

3. That referred specialists are also available for in person appts and tests can now be run

4. That movie theaters, with their spacing and cleaning requirements, are now gonna be world's safer for me than before, at least for the short term.

 

So, in 2020, I knew my health was not great this spring, but a little fatigue - whatevs...not an emergency, but not great and needing to be looked at...but Covid...so, it waited a few months...and now...

 

Well, as an early 40's female with zero family history, I now have Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia (also known as Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia).  For a month, I've known this diagnosis was coming, but it still sucks.  In good news, you normally die from infection and illness (not the actual cancer), and you're incredibly susceptible to both, so all the Covid precautions and the washing of the hands - you now aren't just doing it for Covid folks and yourself, but Leukemia folks, too...

 

PS - This is a jackpot diagnosis.  It is more rare for me to get diagnosed with this, that it would have been to die from Covid at my age.  And there's nothing you can do in life to stop it from coming, and nor is it yet curable.  So, I'm gonna spend the next few years enjoying as much of life as available in the bubble, b/c it will be world's safer for me (and my family) now than when we go back to ignoring sniffles and getting together in cramped packs.  As a favor to me, forever try to avoid the 1st (although feel free to do #2, b/c I'll have to avoid those when we get post-Covid anyway)...

 

So, just a reminder - you gotta live the life you have without being stupid about it...and you don't really fully ever control your health - sometimes, sh&t just happens.  

 

PPS - I'm so thankful I only had to wait a few months for the diagnosis, not a few years, since I do have a few markers that might make treatment more necessary sooner vs later...I still have tons of staging testing to do this month and next before I know how bad the prognosis is, but unlike my parents, I do know I won't be stage 4 right away (or stage 3, so we're looking at stage 0-2), so there's that blessing...and I'm gonna enjoy my movie night tomorrow in my practically empty AMC theater with my mask and hope I get a bunch more under the protective policies in place before they, or my health, go away:)... 

Nothing the best wishes for our TwoMisfits. :cheekkiss:

Thanks everyone for the kind thoughts:).  And you're not getting rid of me for at least a few years, if not many, many more - I do have an agreement with the spouse that I'm around at least through my youngest moving out b/c he and dad would kill each other without me, so since I'm gonna try to be around for them, I'm planning on following and commenting on movies, too, for at least the next decade (and maybe two), with the help, thoughts, and prayers from my docs, friends, family, and all of you:)...

 

PS - And if anyone in the medical research fields wants to make curing CLL a priority now (or any teen/college student now decides this sounds awesome), please do so...I'll try to hang around and wait out your work:)...

In terms of erasing one of them from history, Bale definitely has the least impact on movies if he's gone. Someone else steps into Batman which is pretty much the only big difference.

 

With all the other actors, there's bigger ripple effects if they are just erased from history.

Is Bale the most forgettable Batman? I mean, yeah he's an amazing actor and the Nolan movies are top tier, but Bale is kinda not memorable

SWEARRRRR TO MEEEEEE

 

(honestly, Batvoice alone makes him more memorable than anyone but maybe Keaton.) 

 

((my phone wanted to autocorrect memorable to “memeable”, and that’s not wrong either.))
