Transfusion # 5

Yesterday was my 5th transfusion since this whole myeloma crap started. Damn, that's a lot of blood. But it was my first one in almost a month, so my body is hanging on to blood longer. That's got to be a good sign, right?

Today I am in the office for the first time in a week. A little weird being here. After work, I go get blood work done, and then it's home for a nap and hang out with Dillon and Jacquie.

Tomorrow is chemo, the end of cycle 4. I was supposed to do about 8 cycles, so in theory I'm half way done. But given we're changing things up, I don't know how many more cycles I have.  Plus I am waiting for consultation appointments with a couple of local myeloma experts. Hopefully, that'll happen next week. Times a wasting!
