Simple Sunday

A nice Sunday morning with cooler temperatures.

Getting ready to do the bedroom zone.

Plus its sheet day.

Yesterday I did a Walmart grocery pick up. I don’t shop Walmart but was interested in the pickup and I had a $10 off code. I bought quite a few organic items and them some pantry stuff I wanted. I was surprised at how easy it was and I didn’t have to go into the store. I’m not sure I would do it a lot but I have to say the prices were quite a bit less than Safeway.  Organic Valley milk was almost $2.00 less than Safeway. So were the Morningstar items. So those are big savings.  I also went to our little organic farm down the road and got $20 worth of veggies. The corn was excellent.

I’ll have to see how I feel about it over the next week.

I was able to book a night at Nevada Beach for B’s birthday. We may or may not take the tent trailer. Our old van can be used to sleep in so that’s an easier option. We found a nice 2017 Hummingbird RV by Jayco for a terrific price but it’s about 2 hours away. We were pretty gung ho about it but then backed off. I think since we really don’t have other camping plans this year we should save our money till next spring. It was a great price though. If we could see one locally it might make a difference.

It’s a gym day too and that’s it. Don’t need any groceries for a change.

The coming week is busy with 3 days of appts for B. We’ll get thru. After this week we should be on schedule for every 2 weeks. But there’s also my doctor appt and his BMB  early September so that will add some extra driving days. My daughter isn’t working yet so she’ll help with some appts which will be appreciated.

My labs should be in tomorrow. I’m guessing they went up and really there isn’t any more downward trends. So the question will when do we start Velcade again. Since my doctor is very conservative I may have to say I want to start when my Kappa light chains go to 100. It’s hard to know if I’m asymptomatic. But if it’s going the way it is it still may be a while. I went from 19.7 to 22.? to 25.? to ??? So 3 points a time. That’s every 6 weeks. The ratio at 2.33 so that’s above the high normal of 1.65

If I could hold off till next year, B will be in good shape and hopefully not need any interventions.

Who knows? Right?

Wednesday stuff

imageWell, so far its been a nice week off pomalyst. I’ve felt pretty good. I e messaged my doctor and he said not to worry, I was only mildly neutophrenic. So, since I feel good, I haven’t worried. I’ll start Pom on Friday.

We’ve been quite busy at the library since out main branch is closed for re carpeting. Lots of new people picking up holds etc. tomorrow I have a FOL meeting and we’ll be voting on officers and summer reading budget. That is if we have a quorum. We should as most members know it’s an important meeting.

We’ve had quite cool weather but still very nice. Low 70’s, and a little breezy.

My husband put together the Poang chair and the little side table from Ikea and both are quite nice. So I have decide if I’ll get another Poang chair so there’s two. I’ll wait and see. I haven’t put the new slip covers on and maybe later today.

So today is my doctors appointment and my zometa infusion. This is my first one in almost a year. Maybe it’s 10 months. So, I’m taking Gatorade and Tylenol. I usually spike a little fever the first night for a few hours. Also, you generally feel a little dragged out. I don’t have much to go over with him except, my low ANC, and hopefully my FLC and Spep test results are there. But usually it’s 3 days. I’m still not sure about getting the paper work for the second opinion going. I’m in resistance for some reason.

Then I thought we might stop at Costco, but usually I’m too wiped out after zometa so I’ll have to plan that another day unless I feel good.

Here’s the really exciting news. Today my Mac Air is showing up. Finally after saying I was going to get one for the last 3 years ,I did it. Plus, my daughter , in graduate school, all of a sudden thought she’d like to use one too.  So…… I’m very excited. Not sure what I’ll do with it yet that’s different from my iPad but it will have a keyboard and a bigger screen. So exciting!!!!

I still haven’t figured out how to insert the pictures here, where I want them. Maybe with my new MacAir I can figure it out.
