This morning I spent time in quiet reflection as the sun rose in the distance. Each day I try my best to stay happy and positive and appreciate what life has to offer. I believe that positivity and minimizing stress in my life are effective tools for fighting my multiple myeloma.
Last week I had my March blood test and the results are good. My general cancer marker (igG) and my specific cancer marker (Beta 2 Globulin) remained stable, although both increased slightly.
|Date||Albumin||Beta Globulin 2||Gamma Globulin||igG||igA||igM|
|Reference Range||34.0-53.0||1.8 – 4.8||5.1 – 15.0||6.7 – 15.2||.70 – 4.00||.40 – 2.30|
My Hematology profile (how my body responds overall to being on treatment) also remains great.
|Reference Range||4.0 – 11.0||135 – 170||150 – 400||2.0 – 8.0|
To recap: On Sunday, March 27th, I completed Cycle 15 Week 3. 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).
