2nd ASCT – Day 122 – September 17 2012

Took the last of my Cycle 1 – 14 days of Zolinza (vorinostat) 400 mg today. Wondering if my taste will return over the next 14 days off before I begin Cycle 2.

The air is so dense with forest fire smoke today that I stayed inside all day with my HEPA filter. Got a lot of computer work done and calls made. Had a nice afternoon nadir (nap) and should be rested for my trip to St. Luke’s Hospital MSTI in Twin Falls, Idaho tomorrow. Hopefully, the air will be clearer in the Magic Valley.
Can barely see Mt. McCaleb (above) and it probably just 5 miles away. Looking the other direction, the Mine Hill is a tad more visible, but not much.
This afternoon’s air quality report from Challis, Idaho some 55 miles north of Mackay, Idaho. The air quality has been UNHEALTHY all day. We don’t have an air quality monitor here.
