July blood test results – Loving my single digits

So happy to still have low numbers. Loving my single digits big time.

My July blood test results show that my cancer levels (m protein) increased a bit again, but I’m not concerned. Recall that June was 5 and July is 6. Focused each day on keeping them down and reasonably stable.

Life is great – feeling good!

My room contains part of a brick chimney. I thought it would be a nice place for a self-portrait. Love how the natural light streams through my windows.

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.

From mid-October to late-May, I was treated with Kyprolis (carfilzomib), an IV chemo, Cyclophosphamide, and dexamethasone.
