Seems I may have been premature in taking a break from the blog. My beta-2 microglobulin levels are up slightly, in the “you might need to start treatment” range. Oncology appointment next week after a rushed blood tests and a (scheduled) skeletal survey. Will post more in when get new info. At the very least, this will probably mean another bone marrow biopsy and possible chemo/stem cell consult. In the meantime, feel free to make loud noises and wake me up form this bad dream. Thanks.
