Saw the oncologist yesterday and all is well in myelomaville.
My Labs are almost identical to last time so that’s a relief. I’ll have labs in 6 weeks and then 6 weeks after that and then have an appointment with him.
Very exciting to still be doing well and in remission.
We went to Trader Joes after the appointment and stocked up on lots of goodies. I even bought a couple of frozen pizzas just so when on some Friday night pizza I don’t feel like making it. I also bought a cauliflower crust to try for a gluten-free one. I stocked up on a few spices I needed and olives ,tomato sauce, and nuts.
I do wish there was a TJ’s closer, but since we’re coming back from Sacramento, it’s right off the freeway so quite convenient.
I might go to the gym since yesterday I didn’t go but I may just stay home and putter around. I have some sweet potatoes cooking for lunches or dinners. Plus I made a small chopped veggie tray for snacking.
Tonight is pizza night.
We’re at the end of the year so, it’s 6 months from June 1 when the new walking year started. That’s 3 1/2 years of walking every single day with intention. These past few days it has been 27 degrees and that is pretty darn cold to walk in at 6:30 am. I finished the year (almost the end of the year) at 900 miles. I was trying to get 1000 miles in that the lady from Britain challenged. But I was still 100 miles short. Next year!!
I saw my oncologist today, and he was sick with a cold so we stayed apart. And no physical exam which I don’t need anyway, but it was good to touch base. He said everything looked good and he’d order labs for 8 weeks. That’s a little long for my comfort range but we’ll see. Actually, after I read the clinical summary, he put them at 6 weeks. I think he wasn’t really thinking clearly. That’s okay. Then I’d see him again in February. I think if my labs look good I’ll cancel that and ask for labs again 6 weeks after that. I think that’s what he wanted but got mixed up especially since his computer wouldn’t boot up and his head was stuffy.
Then we hit Trader Joes for salad stuff, got the paint for the front room, and then stopped at Costco to return something.
All in all a good day.
It’s taco Tuesday.
So out Internet hasn’t been working , it’s frustrating. Tonight we are switching over to u verse.I hope this makes the difference. we will see.
So ,back from my monthly oncologists and everything looks good. I get my SPEP test back next week. That is the big marker so ……otherwise we were out of there in record time.
then we went to trader joes and that was fun. Bought too much, but I figure part of this is camping food and my son will be home alone ,so he needs some stuff too.
I’m heading out for my walk right now. I’m up to 17 days in a row. Not bad.
