Week 188 of chemo complete – Hello Nature!

I love saying Hello Nature! I wonder if there is somewhere in the world where sunflowers grow as big as trees. That would be an amazing place to visit. While taking my self-portrait, bees were flying around, but I focused on the shot, and didn’t worry about getting stung.

Just another beautiful day for photography.

Week 188 of chemo complete: Hello Nature!

On Sunday, Sept 16th, I completed Cycle 47 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 2017, my Dexamethasone treatment ended, due to right eye damage, reported by my Glaucoma Specialist, from long-term use. On January 9th, 2018 I began Ninlaro chemo to combat steadily rising cancer levels. On July 23rd, dexamethasone (40mg) was added to my Ninlaro and Pomalyst chemo treatment, due to excessively high cancer levels.
