Yep, 5 years ago TODAY, somewhere between 11:30-1:00, I was officially diagnosed with Myeloma. Multiple Myeloma. Multiple stupid Myeloma. But I’m still here, 5 years later!!!
So I’ve lived 6 myeloma December 30th days, surviving 5 years since diagnosis… weird math that is!
But it’s the dash ( – ) between the years that matters and adds up to those important 5 years!
Ok, enough of my numerical silliness.
2014 is rolling over to 2015 in just hours and December hasn’t been very kind to me. This month brought a lot of GI upset-unpredictability, tiredness, fatigue, headaches, neuropathy-buzzing, etc, so I didn’t do much or leave the house much. I missed being able to enjoy fully moving into my new office and missed holiday festivities with my staff, friends, family, pets, nature, etc…
Then several days before Christmas, I totally bit the dust with a lousy sinus head cold fever thing. Still not fully well now, and sadly Jim and Scott caught my cooties this week. Cruel stupid germs. I see NO point in illness and sickness… (except isn’t it nature’s way of eliminating the weak…). I hate being sick and I hate being weak. But, thanks to what’s left of my immune system, my biological-military battled the bugs and I am better now without hospitalization or Antibiotics! And that’s a a big deal to me, as I was always proud of how healthy I used to be, how few bugs I caught, and how my body battled on it’s own.
Just before I really bit the dust and my 101 fever tortured me, B.F.F. Kristin came over and she and Boots fell in love:
IGA = 1070 (normal = 70 – 400)
Of course 15! It will be 2015
And of course continues my #5-theme!
Live happy, live well, and make a difference somewhere, somehow, with someone or something as often as you can!
