Hello December, month of monumental anniversaries...
But for now, I'll keep it short and sweet and share my recent lab results
After a lousy, crazy November, with being sick more than well, I am happy to greet December 2017. Strangely, after battling the vicious viral URI that attacked me, my recent December 3 labs gifted me with relatively good results. So strange, after being so sick, missing my monthly November Darzalex infusion, taking a few days off of Pomalyst, and not taking Dex every week, my labs came back with good news. I will note though, that prior to doing the Dec 3 labs, I had been back on Pomalyst and Dex for a week. I'm super proud of my minimal compromised immune system for rallying, and pummeling the viral bug and myeloma at the same time!
And then the next day, gale force winds hit CA, and our poor state is burning up. I am just overwhelmed with all the devastation affecting people, animals, and the landscape. In comparison, my issues are small. I have a home, insurance, and all my loved ones (human and animal) are safe. So I shut my trap, count my blessings and good fortune, and focus on how lucky I am, as my heart breaks for those who's lives are suddenly, inexplicably destroyed.
