5 - Hours at my monthly darzalex infusion yesterday. I'm on the monthly schedule and all is good. Numbers are great. I've got a slight cold which is fairly normal for darzalex patients.
15 - In 15 days I'll be at the 6.5 year mark since diagnosis. It's all gravy from this point on.
56 - How old I am now. Hard to believe.
20:18 - Minutes to do a mile on the treadmill on Oct 13
18:55 - Minutes to do a mile on treadmill on Oct. 16
9:00 - Goal for mile. I used to be an avid runner. I gave it up because my body ached too much (pre myeloma) but after a trip to Ocean Beach, San Diego and seeing all the folks running, I'm ready to start up again. I need a goal/target and this is it. I also plan to start riding my bike often. I eventually might get back on a road bike and train for a century. Again, it's important to have goals that serve as motivation.
200 - How much I weigh. This is ridiculous
180 - Weight goal.
2.5 - Months since I retired. It's going great. I feel as good as I have in years. I'm collecting pension. Social security disability kicks in, in January. The LLS had an insurance premium copay assistance program that ended suddenly two weeks ago, right as I working on my application. Funds were depleted. So for now, insurance is out my pocket.
2 - In two years I will qualify for medicare. I'll need to pick up the cost of supplemental costs, but shouldn't be a big deal.
