So I completely forgot in my last update to share my February cancer levels. I don’t how that happened, about it perhaps due to fatigue, pharm but it slipped my mind. It could also be that because the news wasn’t negative – my cancer levels remain stable – it wasn’t something to worry about. This means my chemo continues to be effective, which is a good thing.

My Hematology profile (how my body responds overall to being on treatment) looks good.
|Reference Range||4.0 – 11.0||135 – 170||150 – 400||2.0 – 8.0|
I’m staying positive and remain hopeful that I’ll be stable for a long time.
Photo: On Saturday, I travelled to Capilano Canyon on the North Shore. I arrived shortly after sunrise as I enjoy walking in the early mornings, when there are less people around. Adventures in nature always makes my happy.
To recap: On Sunday, March 5th, I completed Cycle 27 Week 4. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare blood cancer. It is incurable, but treatable. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex).
