Immune System

I'm not complaining because I've been pretty fortunate with my myeloma. But I've got some skin issues popping up again, basically because of my lowered immune system. Annoying! That's what you get for being on non stop chemo for 4 plus years. And that is why myeloma patients have to be very careful about avoiding infection.

On the bright side, we saw Berenson on Friday and everything is good. Keep on the same path. My iron had been low, but it's back up to normal. I asked Dr B his thoughts on the recent cure talk discussion on allogeneic transplants. He didn't listen to it, but he had some very clear thoughts on the subject. No, no, no. That's the summary of his thoughts. This is what makes myeloma interesting and challenging. No standard treatment and no consensus on treatment methods.

Yesterday was Saturday, which means I had good bonding time with Gracie.
