Last week I had my blood test and I just looked at the results online through a free service called myehealth, stuff that is available in my province. The person that took my blood I recognized before. I didn’t need to explain that I was taking photos for my blog. The process was quick, drugs I used my left arm as I believe my right arm is tapped out. I’m no longer stressed about what the results mean. If my myeloma has returned, order or if chemo is in my near future, so be it, I’ll deal with it. I have alot of online community support to help me through whatever turn my health takes. I have a number of questions to discuss with my Hematologist.

I have Multiple Myeloma, a rare blood cancer. From February to November 2013, I received Velcade chemo through weekly in-hospital injections as an outpatient. It was probably the most difficult year of my life and I’m happy it is over.
I’m focused on staying positive each day. Not doing much photography right now as I’ve without a laptop. Here is a photo from this summer.
