    I have cried tears...first welling up at your courage and then at the end of your story - tears of happiness!

    I always thought you were amazing and boy has that been an underestimation on my part! Much love to you - you are a walking success story!

    I should tell you that I am not that brave. I have no choice in having this disease, but I do have a choice in how I deal with it. It helps that right now I am not ill. I am anemia, but I have no cancer in my bones or organs, and for that I am thankful.

    Today is infusion and injection day. I also have an appointment with the NP and I am going to push for something to be done about my sore throat. 5 weeks is long enough for OTC/or to let nature take its course.

    Hope everything goes well, Sweet .

    I'm glad you're going to ask about the sore throat. There had been so many viruses/infections going around, you may need some meds to knock it out.

    Infusion and injection was a breeze today. Got a nurse who wasn't as talkative as the one who usually does it so got through quickly.

    NP looked at my throat and ears and sent in a prescription for Flo-Nase (I know that's not the correct spelling) She said I have lots of fluid behind both ears and the drainage is what's making/keeping my throat sore.

    Labs = WBC is normal, RBC higher than it's been in a while. I think she said 10.7.

    I asked her what they look at to see if progress is being made. She said 'light chains' and will check them the next time I have labs (maybe next month).

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. Love you guys.

    This is a lol. On the day after I have the Dex (steroid) I can move mountains SO I'm thinking those 6 holes I need dug for plants (shrubs) may get dug in the morning.

    Glad it went well, Sweet. Hope the Flonase does it's magic (IIRC, it's a steroid, too! ). Don't overdo on digging those holes, even if you feel like Super Woman .

    Maryjane - I didn't mean to click 'edit' on your post.

    Granddaughter is here and must admit we're both feeling 'lazy' this morning.

    No worries, Sweet !

    I hope the two of you have a relaxing day!

    I talked with the SIL of one of the individuals from MS (also a descendant of the Collums family) who had MM. She said Ann battled MM for 18 years.

    With all the treatments available today (and early detection), I think it's a reasonable expectation to be able to keep full blown MM at bay indefinitely. I surely hope that is the case for you, Sweet .
