Hey folks. Hellish June is over. I had my first day of the latest chemo cycle yesterday. Tomorrow I follow up with the surgeon to ensure things are healing right. I'm feeling better day by day. And I apologize for not giving details on the surgery, but this is one of those things where I've opted to hold back. But let me say this....everything is fine. It wasn't the cancer. It was cleaning up stuff resulting from my lowered immune system. As I've said before, myeloma patients are all faced with staying on top of their immune system. If someone is sick, I avoid them. I was my hands constantly. And things that might have been dormant in our body, might become active. It's one of those things. Thursday is day 2 of this chemo cycle.
I want to say I feel good. We've got a handle on everything. But that doesn't mean I'm not going to have some tough times. June was one of those times. But it's over and I move on.
