It’s raining and I’m not walking and it’s 5:30 am. I haven’t bought the Frogg Toggs yet so I don’t have any rain gear. I guess I’ll get my ass in gear and do that this week as I don’t mind the rain as long as I’m covered up.
It hasn’t been a great week. I had some pain in my side last week and it turned out to be a mild case of diverticulitis. So now I’m stuck on antibiotics which wouldn’t be so bad but there’s 2 and one is one that is NO alcohol(wine for me) as it will give you a violent reaction. So not fun for me as I love my ritual of wine in the evening. Well, maybe change is good.
Then my CBC and CMP came in and they were all fine. Unfortunately, my Kappa light chains went up another 11 points to 55.7 and Lambda went down so that means the ratio went up( not good) to 5. 1. I’m not freaking out but it’s clearly not a good sign. Treatment is out there again the question would when is my doctor going to think it should start. He still seems to think my numbers too low. They are low and I don’t want to start Velcade soon but time is ticking and I don’t want to have fractures or let my numbers get too high. Granted they are still low as when I started treatment before they were over 1000mg/L. I guess it’s just wait and wait some more.
I did do quite a bit of house tidying this morning. I decided I needed to do something or I was going to go stir crazy. So I swished and swiped the bathroom, tidied my office area, mopped the kitchen floor and washed some of the entryway windows. I plan to go out and put on the gas heater and clean the sun porch.
Well, on that depressing note I’ll close.

so sorry you had such a bad week……..
How hard to have to wait and see what is happening with your “numbers”. I’m sorry you are feeling down.
Hi Juhli, It is hard since it’s obvious the myeloma cells are increasing. But I suppose from his standpoint it’s too early to restart Velcade. But I see him mid-December so I’ll ask again although last time he indicated that it would still be a while.
Sorry your numbers are up a bit, but what a warrior you are Chris! How many years now? I’m coming up on 10 this month, and know you’re ahead of me!! What side effects did you have from Velcade? I’ve been on Dex 40mg, Velcade and Cytoxan 400mg for over a year now. Crazy what our bodies can tolerate. Hope you are feeling better, and how is your hubby doing? Enjoy the beautiful snow, if it’s not too cold up there. xoxo Julie
