How Things Change in 9 Years

Hello 7.29.19

Wow, end of July.
July 2019.

10 years ago I was super sick, and didn’t know it. Well I “knew” something was up, but I didn’t REALLY KNOW! It’s amazing how much has changed in 10 years. I’m processing it more than ever now… so much illness for me and my hubby…

9 years ago yesterday, July 28, 2010 I was released from City of Hope hospital from a 27 day stay for my autologous stem cell transplant. I was ok in the beginning, then so so so sick, then FINALLY better enough to be released, but so weak, so sick, so challenged physically and mentally. All my posts from back then, are here, if you haven’t clicked the link from my previous posts: https://juliesmyelomamoments.blogspot.com/2010/07/
Ah, this life… we never know what’s around the corner. We never know how wonderful and awful our lives will become, until it becomes our life…

But I am always GRATEFUL for so much, amidst the horribleness, tragedy, and lost life…

The other night,
beautiful warm night
We think we have all the time in the world,
Then we don’t… 
July 2019

Just too much happening, too much emotion, too much sadness, too much processing of Life, on so many levels. But one day at a time, one hoof in front of the other daily…

Onwards I march…
10 Dex Steroids pills this morning at 7am.
Velcade shot this afternoon,
Cytoxan capsules (8 x 50mg each) later with dinner.
So amazing what my body can handle…
CBC and organ status labs are holding their own. Always sooooo shocking to me! Myeloma status labs in a week…

Thank you for checking in and caring about my crazy life journey. Hoping your summer is going well, your treatments successful, and you are staying cool this HOTTTTT summer!
