Pomalyst chemo week 10 complete: Thinking about time

Week 10 chemo complete: Thinking about timeTime is on my mind

Time is always on my mind. When I’m lying in bed exhausted from chemo fatigue, I’m thinking about friends I’d rather be spending time with. Each chemo, I’m wondering about the long-term effects of treatment for an indefinite period on my body and mind. When I read about a fellow patient passing away from multiple myeloma, I reflect on my own time with this incurable disease.

Living with cancer has daily challenges, but I’m staying positive. Each time I watch the sun setting on the horizon, I’m thankful to make it through another day and remain optimistic that my future holds many more sunsets.

To recap: I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare blood cancer. It is incurable, but treatable. From February to November 2013, I received Velcade chemo through weekly in-hospital injections as an outpatient. From February 9th 2015, I am on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex). Yesterday I completed Cycle 3 Week 2. I’m thankful I do not have any major side effects from my treatment to date.
