Perhaps you're weary of my philosophical musings of my ongoing suffering? (Me too LoL!) I noticed there weren't any comments on my previous post. Must have been the "Fungus" analogy :) I read a lot of blogs and don't always leave comments, so not to worry! Please know that I really appreciate all the visits from all over the world. I'm fascinated, amazed and appreciative when I view my blog Stats and see the visits from around the globe, and see who's reading my posts from where. Thank you for caring about my life, my situation, my status, my posts and my myeloma musings!
I do love when you leave me a note, letting me know you've stopped by to read about my life, as I care very much about you and your life and what brought you to my blog. I have readers email me that they have had difficulty posting, or the blog losing/deleting their comment after they click to post. Here's what I do when I respond to blogs: I make sure to copy my text before I click post, so just in case the blog deletes your post, you still have your comment saved in memory. This particular Google based blog requires an identity, so log in however you'd like, write your thoughts to me, copy your text, and click post. If it doesn't post first time round, you have your text saved to post again, now that you are signed in. Just a thought, in case you've had my blog delete your comment, after you've posted. I really do want to hear from you, hear your story and know where you are from!
If you're reading my blog you either know me personally and know this is the best way to know my status (physically and mentally) or you've stumbled upon it looking up info related to Multiple Myeloma. That's how I originally found all the wonderful blogs out there. I Googled in Myeloma, and boom! found a tremendous wealth of information related to everything myeloma! I continue to read and read and read about everything myeloma, as information about this cancer that invaded my life never ceases to fascinate me. So here are some great links I've found, that will help you interpret your blood tests, give you more detail about myeloma and some other general links I read often, such as the MMRF, IMF, Myeloma Beacon, Myeloma Crowd, etc. I also have quite a few blog links to the right of my blog, as well as at the very bottom of the blog page. So much information out there now!
This is a great site that explains all the details of (all types) of lab work:
Such a lovely picture of me :( I have a bruise like this on both hands. My hands make me look so old and ancient. Myeloma has taken such a toll on me. But forward I march, one day at time, one infusion at a time, grateful for all the expert medical care I receive to keep myeloma suppressed.
We've had heat then rain, then heat and rain. Just love the intense colors after the earth is refreshed after rain. I am very fortunate to feel well enough a few days a week, to be able to get outside and enjoy nature's beauty!
