Today is another trip to the hospital but before I go down I will try and do my Flylady zone. It’s the bedroom so that is generally not too involved. I did call a house cleaning service to check on a ‘deep’ clean and I’d like an estimate. If it’s reasonable I’ll schedule that for […]
Apologies for being late sharing my April blood test results. Unfortunately my cancer levels increased a bit. Not freaked out. This chemo has been a rockstar fighting my cancer since October, so no complaints here. I’ve done very well since … Continue reading →

So tomorrow is my birthday and I’ll be 44!! Who would have guessed I’d get this far along the line – certainly not me when I was diagnosed nearly ten years ago. And honestly I am so, so grateful to … Continue reading →
This is just a quick update. I’m still on Darzalex, but am also taking 2 mg of Pomalyst (pom) 21 days a month. I’m not taking dex at the moment. I just get 20 mg of dex with each dara infusion. We’ll see how that goes. For the last…
