Long Haul

Back to chemo today. Maintenance. Everything is still looking good. But still it was such a slap in the face reminder. In talking to Dr Phan, we talked about needing to do a bone scan..just to see how things are going. I'm not having any bone pain, but we gotta be diligent. He also said that alcohol is a bone marrow suppressor, meaning it might impact my ability to make red blood cells. I am a little low right now. So I'm back to the very occasional one beer. I guess that's ok, but it also takes away my little slice of normalcy. Fucking myeloma sure does disrupt everything. Like I said, I'm doing great and feel great, but damn, once in a while I'm throwing myself a pity party.
