Trisha, I am so sorry about your Mum. What makes it more amazing is that I was actually asleep when it happened and had not had any symptoms whatsoever. I am very thankful my husband was not asleep yet. He tells me I became ill when it happened and when he realized I was just lying there... yeah... he's my hero!

Wow, the Universe obviously had a bigger plan for you Kathy, I've spoken to young survivors who went through a very painful experience and months of rehabilitation, you really were blessed and I think you've been through enough for one life time!!!:)

Hi lovely gals! The dinner in my honor was humbling. I will surely miss everyone here. I am still working; though taking it easy and not staying late. I saw the oncologist yesterday and we were so sad to be separating. She assured me that can email or call her with anything on my mind. My CLL is just not going away (wishful thinking) and the count is now 126,000! I have no other symptoms so I am still considered Stage One and on the wait and watch routine. I plan to tak tomorrow off and meet up with an old friend and then get my hair done. I think next Tuesday will be my last working day; though I may come in on Thursday or Friday for final good-byes! Kathy, I second Tricia's words and am glad you are doing okay. Regards to all! Gail

I read the posts from Kathy and Trisha regarding aneurysms. My mother died from one at the age of 49 when I was 19. Yesterday I celebrated my 78th birthday and though I cannot believe I am still "here", I feel great! I have two wonderful grandsons and my daughter has found a full-time job after being a stay-at-home mom for 12 years. So at least, for now, I have no complaints.

I was 49 when my aneurysm ruptured as well. There were no warning signs like "the worst headache in the world". I felt fine and then according to my husband about 15 or 20 minutes after I fell asleep it happened. Sort of like cancer in my case as neither I nor my doctor who I had seen just a short time earlier had detected the lump.

I just met another lady who survived this too Kathy and she was lucky she was found quickly by her son, its good to know some people can get over this but scary to think there are no warning signs, do you have any memory of what happened?
