Week 112 chemo complete: Hello cherry blossoms!

Week 112 chemo complete: Hello cherry blossoms!

Saturday morning it was cold and raining, so I stayed close to home and travelled to Queen Elizabeth Park. It was beautiful to see all the cherry blossoms everywhere. I was worried about getting my camera wet, so I placed my toque on top to block the rain. I got muddy and very wet repeatedly sitting in the grass. Thankfully I had lady grey tea to warm me up afterwards.

Happy Springtime!

To recap: On Sunday, April 2nd, I completed Cycle 28 Week 4. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare cancer of the immune system. It is a cancer of the plasma cells, a type of immune cell that produces antibodies to fight infection, found in the bone marrow. As a blood cancer, it is incurable, but treatable. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex).

Weekly chemo-inspired self-portraits can be viewed in my flickr album.
