This past Friday I saw Berenson. It's my monthly visit, but more importantly it was my final visit before Kilimanjaro. He gave a big thumbs up. The darazlex is working like a charm, I feel great and I'm ready. Dr B had no concerns, other than making sure I give his Institute of Myeloma and Bone Cancer Research (IMBCR) a shout out at the summit. Check. Followed up the successful visit with lunch and beer at Barney's Beanery in West Hollywood. In my younger days I spent a fair amount of time there. Definitely one of my favorite spots. Fish and chips, beer. Check.
