ho hum, another day

It's Thursday. Tomorrow I'm off work. It's acupuncture tomorrow.  Today and this past Tuesday, I rode to work. That's 2 out of 3 days, another milestone in my recovery. I feel great. My blood counts have been hovering just below what's normal, so I'm sure that has much to do with my energy.  And because my blood counts are up, I don't get a procrit shot this week.  Thus, it's a week without a single medical related appointment. How great is that?!

My creatinin this week is 3.63.  It' just above my record low which is 3.61.  I really want it to dip under 3.  Thus the acupuncture. We focus on the kidneys with the my treatment and I believe it helps.  I've added to my diet a little bit, so it's good to see that it's not putting extra stress on the kidneys.  The big thing is that stable kidneys translate into stable myeloma.  3.63 means everything is good.  Next week is chemo, then it's 24 hour urine, then it's Berenson. That's the pattern.
