This morning I walked around Queen Elizabeth Park enjoying the fresh air and nature. I noticed leaves had fallen from the trees and that some had already changed colour. Hoping for many more summery days, before the rainy season arrives. I’m not yet ready for Autumn.
To recap: On Sunday, August 13th, I completed Cycle 33 Week 3. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare cancer of the immune system. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells that affects the plasma cells, a type of immune cell that produces antibodies to fight infection. These plasma cells are found in the bone marrow. As a blood cancer, it is incurable, but treatable. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex). On July 16th, my dexamethasone treatment ended, due to eye damage, reported by my Glaucoma Specialist, from long-term use.
Weekly chemo-inspired self-portraits can be viewed in my flickr album.
