My Third Year, so far

The drama begins

20th September 1998

This Photo was taken shortly after admission, prior to any chemotherapy having started. Apparently the type of Leukaemia I have, AML, likes to present itself around the eyes. As you can see, my whole face has swollen up quite considerably, this is due to deposits of Leukaemia cells.

Hospital Toy Room with Kayla

24th September 1998

Kayla and I playing in the Camperdown Ward toy room. Even after only a couple of days on chemo, you can already see a slight decrease in the swelling on my face.

29th September 1998

I was discharged today after finishing my first course of chemo. You can see the big difference that the chemo has made to the swelling on my face. I have also lost close to 1.5kg.
