Well, it’s a new week starting and I’m glad. Last week really was never-ending with stuff to do and I felt stressed all week.
We did get B signed up for Medicare Part D. We actually won’t use it for his Noxafil( Tier 5 drug) because it will be $4900. So we will keep the Cobra for now so that his prescriptions are covered that way. Hopefully, that will work. He won’t be on Noxafil forever, just maybe 3-4 more months. So he is on Medicare and all signed up for Plan F and Part D.
This week I see my eye doctor for my quarterly check on my macular pucker. I’ll need my eye dilated which I hate. But it has to be done. I can’t see a lot out of my right eye but my left eye makes up for it. Although when I went to renew my license and get the Real ID, I had to take the eye test and didn’t realize they test your eyes individually. I panicked a little as I know that eye is around 20/60. but I squeaked by. Next time I’m not so sure. I could have surgery but it’s not guaranteed. But I still may go that route yet.
Other than that it will be a slow week and I need it.
I plan on going to the gym 3 times and keep walking in the mornings.
The fall chores are getting done and B has been busy doing stuff that needs attention. Painting, fixing some concrete steps, tidying the yard, putting away BBQs and all the fall things that need doing.
This week I plan on doing some painting outside on the window trim. That was the 2 windows he put in last month.
In not so good news, my Kappa light chains jumped 13points up. And my kappa/ lambda ratio really jumped to 3.68 mg/L. That’s because when my Kappa goes up my Lambda stays low so the ratio goes up. Well, Fuck it, not much I can do and I do feel ok. I see Dr. L at the very end of the month so once again, I’ll bring up when to start. I hope it can wait till 2020. I figure 2 more months and if it goes up 2 more times and hasn’t , hit 100 I can hold off on treatment. I don’t mind going back into treatment when necessary, it’s the dexamethasone that is so difficult. I pretty much lose 2 days a week. Oh well, F#*k it all. I’ve been doing this since 2005 so I guess I should be used to it. Although you kinda know you’ve been a cancer patient for so long, your family members forget to ask how your labs are.
This week is the kitchen zone so I will start that today.
Our fall weather is really spectacular. Leaves are turning and the mornings are chilly but by afternoon it’s just perfect. We had a fire outside last night because I wanted to.
