Week 34 chemo complete: Always feel happy in the forest

Week 34 chemo complete: Always feel happy in the forest

I’ve been resting in bed since Wednesday fighting a cold, but I knew I had to venture out today to take my weekly photo. I really didn’t have the energy to walk far, so I chose a nearby forest. I always feel happy when I’m spending time in the forest.

Keeping a positive outlook on life!

To recap: On Sunday, October 4th, I completed Cycle 9 Week 2. 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. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex). My treatment cycle is 21 days on (Pomalyst chemo pill), then 7 days off. I take dexamethasone, an oral steroid, every Monday.

Weekly chemo-inspired self-portraits can be viewed in my flickr album.
