Week 114 chemo complete: Early morning at Hinge Park

Week 114 chemo complete: Keep moving forward

Chemo treatment is making me pretty weak mentally, so I’ve been limiting my recent photography adventures to the city. This morning, before sunrise, I headed to Hinge Park in the Olympic Village. As I walked around a bit, I actually observed a beaver renovating a dam in the wetlands there.

Totally made my morning – Nature makes me happy.

To recap: On Sunday, April 16th, I completed Cycle 29 Week 2 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.
