Week 164 of chemo complete: Tomorrow will be a great day…like today!

I feel happy that I can enjoy the beach on a Sunday morning. Although it was raining when I woke up, it ended before I arrived. I love morning walks on a cloudy day as it helps me think. I’m not thinking negative thoughts or worried about my life. Instead, I feel good inside and try to remain positive each day. I know that tomorrow will bring me some sort of adventure and that it will be a great day…like today.

Week 164 of chemo complete: Tomorrow will be a great day, like today!

To recap: On Sunday, April 1st, I completed Cycle 41 Week 4. I have multiple myeloma and anemia, a rare cancer of the immune system. Multiple myeloma affects the plasma cells, a type of immune cell that produces antibodies to fight infection. These plasma cells are 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). On July 16th, my dexamethasone treatment ended, due to eye damage, reported by my Glaucoma Specialist, from long-term use. On January 9th I began Ninlaro chemo to combat steadily rising cancer levels.

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