Week 152 of chemo complete: Quiet reflection by the water

Saturday morning as a light rain fell, I travelled to Vanier Park in Kits. It provides a beautiful view of English Bay, and on a clear day you can see the mountains. I sat in quiet reflection and watched rowers practicing their strokes, while joggers passed by.

I always enjoy spending time in nature. A perfect start to the day.

Week 152 of chemo complete: Quiet reflection by the water

To recap: On Sunday, January 7th, I completed Cycle 38 Week 4. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare cancer of the immune system. Multiple myeloma 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.
