Our New, Old Reality

So, the results are back from UMCCC and there still appears to be a trace amount of Myeloma showing up in my blood test. Bummer.

Bummer because….
….I was really enjoying staying awake past 7:30PM because I wasn’t so dawg gone tired every night b/c of the chemo
….I was hoping my children would never have to really experience our families fight with MM
….I was not expecting any sort of relapse for at least 5 years, if not ever
….I stopped thinking about Myeloma for 9 months and it was bliss
….I don’t want to have to go back on chemo
….I spent 3.5 years dominating this thing and I was hoping that would be enough
….I don’t want to give MM any more mindshare 
….I want to live a normal life of a 33 year old with a young family
….my business is taking off and I don’t want treatments to slow that
Here’s the good news….
….it’s a very small amount which should have little affect on my body
….it didn’t increase since the last blood draw
….treatments and research continue to advance
….I have it’s number and I am ready to dominate it again
Life is so interesting. It is so unpredictable. I thank God for the great family and friends that have been placed in our life to help us through this next stage of the doMMination. 
Keep dominating life in your own journey. Overcoming challenges just gets you closer to the prize.
