It’s been a busy week. The snow and weather have been a PITA, but we got thru. Yesterday morning there was ice snow on the ground and in the trees. It must have been like freezing rain in the early morning. The roads were a little scary.
We did recycle this week, and we went to Harbor Freight in Roseville to get a car canopy thing. This last week the Santa Fe has been iced over every morning and taken forever to defrost. So we will put that up over the weekend.
I had my labs this week and haven’t heard what the results are. I’ll probably call later if I don hear. Usually, my doctor is really good about that but sometimes it slips thru his radar. I go to Sacramento to see him next week.
I’ve used the instant pot daily and I am really enjoying it. I made pinto beans( which turned out great), a butter chicken, rice again and hardboiled eggs. I really like that it is quiet and the flavors are pretty impressive. Oh, yeah, I made minestrone soup that was excellent.
Because of 2 trips to Costco, I’ve gone over our food budget but I’m just chalking it up to whatever as some of the stuff was the Orgain for B which was pricey. We bought 2 of them, plus coconut waters and nuts to help him add on calories to gain weight. So, I’m just letting it go instead of obsessing about it. ( which I probably will do anyway)…
B has labs tomorrow and infusion on Sunday. He will need platelets and probably blood but the blood has been 14 days so that’s an improvement. But honestly, it needs to be better.
I have finally have figured out Medicare to a point. I still need to call the insurance company and ask a few questions but I have the basics figured out so I feel good about switching by June. B’s insurance stuff gets re-upped in June so I will consider that (May 31) as the last day and Medicare to start June 1st. I’m a little nervous about it but it’s going to have to happen sooner or later.
Well, I’m off to town to do some errands.
just saw my labs and my kappa light chains went up 4 points( bad) to 19.4 which is the borderline for high. So there it is I’m at the high normal range but at least not out of it.
Lambda went to 13. 6 which is in the normal range, high is 26.5
the ratio went to 1.43 high normal is 1.65 so that’s still below.
Well, I’m somewhat dismayed but heck it’s still a long way off till it would be back on treatment.
