DAY 19

LET ME START OUT BY ANSWERING SOME QUESTIONS–TO FRANCES-NO I DID NOT WORK BEFORE SCT–I HAVE NOT WORKED FOR ABOUT ALMOST 2 YRS NOW. I HAD AN OFFICE JOB BUT I COULDN.T WORK ANYMORE DUE TO BACK PAIN AND SUCH –I ACTUALLY GOT DISABILITY ABOUT A YEAR & A HALF AGO. MY CANCER STARTED OUT AS A SOLITARY PLASMACYTOMA AND I GOT 33 ROUNDS OF RADIATION AND WENT INTO REMISSION FOR 5 YRS AND THEN I GOT IT BACK IN 2004 MORE RADIATION AND THEN IN 2006 IT TURNED INTO MUTIPLE MYELOMA I GOT IT IN FIVE PLACES IN MY SPINE. THEN IN 2006 MY DOCTOR SUGGESTED THE STC. I WAS IN REMISSION GOING INTO THE SCT SO I SURELY HOPED IT WORKED AND ALL THIS WILL BE WORTH IT.IT WAS TO KEEP ME IN REMISSION LONGER. TO AUNT BLANCHE I HOPE THERE WILL BE A DAY I CAN NOT REMEMBER. TODAY WAS NOT SO GOOD I GOT UP EAT SOME TOAST AND TRHEW IT BACK UP –I THINK THE VOMITING AND STOMACH PROBLEMS SEEM TO BE MY BIGGEST ISSUE OTHER THEN I CAN’T STAND SMELLS. I AM HOPING TO FEEL BETTER SOON. I FEEL ALITTLE STRONGER BUT THE STOMACH ISSUES KEEP ME FROM MOVING AROUND IT SEEMS LIKE I JUST WANT TO CURL UP IN MY BED ALOT.MY TASTE BUDS ARE STILL NOT BACK. BY THE WAY THE CLINIC IS ON THE 10TH FLOOR OF METHODIST HOSPITAL. I WISH I COULD REPORT BETTER NEWS BUT RIGHT NOW THERE JUST ISN’T ANY I HOPE I AM NOT DEPRESSING SOME OF YOU=I LONG FOR THE DAYS I WILL FEEL SOME WHAT NORMAL AGAIN AND PUTT AROUND MY HOUSE LIKE I USE TO.
