One of the side effects of chemo is that my body temperature has been lower significantly. I just can’t handle cold weather, so I bundle up when I go outside and generally hibernate during the winter. The heater in my room is kept on high, to help me stay comfortable and sleep better at night.
I love the warmth of a fire. Makes me happy.
To recap: On Sunday, November 29th, I completed Cycle 11 Week 2. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare blood cancer. It is incurable, but treatable. From February to November 2013, I received Velcade chemo through weekly in-hospital injections as an outpatient. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex).
