Almost back to a routine

Tomorrow I go to the office for the first time in 3 weeks. Who knew I'd be excited about going to work. I've actually been getting a lot done from home and while I spent a week in the place that shall be nameless. But going to the office will feel like I am part of the real world.

Friday we have follow up kidney doctor appointment. I still need lots of kidney improvement, but seems like I have at least stabilized. I hope so, cause for some reason, issues with my kidneys scares me more than the cancer does.  I can eat just about anything now, which is good. No dairy no ice cream.

My red blood cell count is up, which is odd. Seems like good sign to me, but both cancer doctors say it's nothing to get excited about.  My light chains ( a measure of the cancer) are down, also seemingly a good a sign, but Phan wants to see a trend....a consistent downward trend before we consider it significant.

I owe some people some phone calls. Sorry about that, I'll try to catch up with people this weekend.

And that's it. A couple of days coming up with no appointments. Just me and my annoying tubes. I'll take it.
