I frequently follow fantastic fellow folks

I do follow fellow Multiple Myeloma bloggers (in the blogosphere, which sounds like the start of a tongue twister). There are quite a few and they post from all over the world. There is a website dedicated to hosting only Multiple Myeloma blogs. You can scroll through contributors or featured postings. Some bloggers are ahead of me on this our common cancer journey, and some are behind. I read their blogs to see what I might be in for, and I read others going through the steps I have already taken. Most, like me, are just telling their stories. I think my blog summed up would say: “This is what happened, yet I remain blessed.” Some bloggers, like John Smith are gifted writers.  I’m encouraged by MM’rs who have many years on their stem cell transplant when the average is 3 ½. There are also the “final” blog posts usually written by a spouse, son, or daughter. Recently one blogger wrote, “The farther you get from death, the more boring your story becomes.” WARNING: My blog may become increasingly boring as I enjoy this remission. Dull or intense, I thank God for each day.
