I finally got my lab results. Kappa light chains went up a point to 14.3, Lambda went up a point to 12.3, the ratio (important) went down to 1.16. So I am still in a great remission and I couldn’t be happier. Another month to add to remission. YAAAAAY!!!
I also had my mammogram and it was all good. I skipped last year and probably will skip next year too. They used the new 3 -d imaging and it really was remarkable technology.
I had my flu shot and did have a fever reaction( not unusual). Thankfully it was at night and didn’t last too long. I usually do have a slight fever, but this was chills and then a stronger fever. Perhaps the strain was different and my immune system reacted. It wasn’t the dose for those over 65 as the pharmacy hadn’t received those yet.
So the continuing saga of my name change. I decided to go down to the Legal Clinic in Roseville for advice on how to fill in the forms. So I read it’s only open 9-12. So off I go. I get there( after getting completely lost), and go thru security and the deputy asks if I have an appt. So I say no, I thought it was all walk-in. Oh well, after looking around at the masses waiting with appts, I just let came home and booked the appointment for this coming week. So another trip to Roseville. Then to file it’s almost $500 and it has to be published in a paper for 4 consecutive weeks. So it’s going to be a while.
The fall weather is definitely here and we even have a chance of rain next week. It’s also way cooler today. WE’ll need to have some small wood for the wood stove ready as I think we will need ‘a twinkly fire’ as I call them.
Our neighbor’s house is for sale at $399,999. It’s a 3 bedroom 2 bath. It’s on the smaller side of 1400 sq feet although that is a lot bigger than ours. It’s a nice piece of property but not a lot of usable land it’s mostly a hill. But I think it will sell quickly as we are right in town within walking of the PO, store, cafe, park etc. I just hope it’s not obnoxious neighbors. The man who lived there( and is now dead), was a real asshole. He tried sueing all the neighbors( not us) because the road is actually on his property but of course we all have easements. But there were many yelling matches with this man and the Sheriff was called in numerous times. As he got older and he did lose the lawsuit, he backed off but was still a complete jerk. In the end, the EMT’s were at his house 2-3 times a week before he finally went into care. Well, it’s a new chapter and I guess we will see.
I’m making a minestrone with the very last of our tomatoes and zucchini and whatever else I can get in there. Plus I’m going to roast a chicken in the oven. I made another loaf of bread the other day and this time used 1/3 whole wheat and it was really nice. Having the bread knife so sharp I can slice real sandwich slices. Very exciting is this life of mine!!!-
Make Bread!! Walk!!! Cook!! Read!!! Drink Wine!! (not in that order, but maybe!!!

Congratulations! Such great news. I also get fever/chills with flu shot. If I pre-medicate with Tylenol for two days prior, I don’t get it.
I did take some Advil, but not till later so maybe sooner??? it was different but thankfully short lived and I was fine the next day.
