This is how it goes…..

I check the blogs of several other Multiple Myeloma caregivers, and patients, and in doing so realized that I hadn’t written anything in almost a month. That’s good! Means that things are really pretty quiet on this MM front.

My honey finally recovered from the maladies that were plaguing him…..and it’s evident by the fact that he’s getting bored. He’s ready to get back out into his shop. I’ve been pretty successful in getting him to wait until the weather is better and those shop doors can be open to allow the dust and fumes to escape. (No more pneumonia or bronchitis needed!)

Last week, our Gorrell RV Park was open for business and Sam and Ann Greco, friends for many years, came and spent the week with us. We always have a good time sharing the cooking chores and playing cards (Pegs ‘n Jokers), at night. Finally, it was like old times ……. with Bob feeling good (B/C).

On Friday night, we had our first night out in many months. For Christmas, our PA daughter and her family had given us tickets to a Kenny G concert at the Beau Rivage, in Biloxi. We spent the night at the Marriott Courtyard. I’m the primary chauffeur, and I had no interest in a 2 hour drive home, late at night. It was a wonderful concert…….and made me feel like things were almost “normal”. My honey now walks slow, can’t do a lot, but we were “out and about”! (Went to ‘Mikey’s on the Bayou’ in Ocean Springs and had delicious Gumbo and Shrimp PoBoys.)

Maybe we did too much. He hasn’t felt very good the past couple of days but this is really how it goes, at our house. One day we’re up, and the next we’re down, even though his numbers still look good. 

I think this is just how it goes…….with Multiple Myeloma.
