Sticker Shock

I’ve been a really lucky guy.  I have been in remission from multiple myeloma for over 6 years now.  One of reasons may be that I have been fortunate to be on a clinical trial that has provided me with continuing maintenance using the drug Revlimid on …

Sword of Damocles

I’m going to start this off with a good story.  For the past seven years, I have been getting infusion therapy for my MM at Dana Farber, most recently with Zometa (bone building) infusions every 3 months.  For all this time, Heather has been my primary…

Habitat Trip

Last weekend, we attended a birthday party for one of our friends’ daughter, Annabella.  She was a lovely young lady celebrating her 6th birthday.  Now it’s my turn.  Today is the 6th anniversary of the stem cell transplant that gave me my new immune s…

Here I am posting barely a month removed after my last post.  Will wonders never cease?  I’m pinching myself to see if i’m really doing this.

Stupid is as Stupid Does

I’m feeling particularly stupid tonight.  Duh!  With good reason, as you are about to learn.  I will share with you the embarrassment of my actions this evening.  As a prologue, I’m sure we haven’t had a working DVD player for quite some time, sinc…

Blindsided

An American tourist visiting London tries to cross the street.  Instinctively, he looks to the left first.  Finding it clear, he steps off the curb, looks to the right, and is immediately flattened by one of those double-decker buses they have over t…

Many Moons

It’s been many moons since I last blogged.  Actually, there has been only one full moon since my last blog…August 18th, but there have been two new moons…August 2 and September 1.  So maybe it has been two moons since I last blogged.  Whatever.?…
