Well, not good on the labs.

Well, I figured another increase. Up to 239.9mg/L from 176. So another almost 70 point increase. Lamba went down to 10.2mg/L so of course, that means the ratio went up. Up to 23.4 mg/L.

The bigger news is now there is finally a monoclonal protein showing:( it’s at .3  I haven’t had a M protein in over 4 years so that is a bit unsettling.  Well, as I’ve said, the blood tells the story. Not much I can do about it except plan on the timing of Chemotherapy. I’m guessing when I see him at the end of August he will still say, wait.  I’m predicting by November/December will be a good time to start.  If you figure about a 70 point increase each 8 weeks, that puts it at 4months apprx.

This will be my 4th relapse( well technically my 3rd, since I counting when I became refractory to Revlimid and started Pomalyst.) so I guess I know the drill.

 

Update….

Okay, after spending half the day calling optimum RX and being on hold ( 4 times) finally at 4:50 they said no we haven’t gotten the order. I called down to mercy , talked with the nurse and she called them. So I’m out floating in the pool and sure enough they call back 10 minutes later. So finally it will be delivered tomorrow . The problem is I won’t be home till 2:15 nor will anyone else. So I’m kinda taking a chance that ups will come later. I will leave him a note and put it on our gate but still………

my m protein is .30 . I like .25 better. So if the 16 mg of dex doesn’t keep the m protein down, I’ll go back to 20 , I guess. 

Really who knows if that’s it, but I’d still go back if that’s what it takes.

what a day!
