Monday, July 13, 2009

I’m so glad it’s Monday! Did I really say that? Yes. Today I had my visit with my regular oncology doctor. She didn’t give out any statistical information, but was encouraging anyway. Oh yeah, she said I could double the dose of Neurontin for more neuropathy (leg pain) relief. She confirmed Jennifer’s & Deb’s advice to gradually increase and decrease dosages. Doc was not in favor of reducing the amount of Velcade (the cause of the neuropathy) in my Chemo Cocktail. The IV was easy because of the Medi-port. While “dripping,” I read some more of the information Aunt Audrie got from the Los Angeles Area Myeloma Support Group. Talk about support, Aunt Audrie went to the meeting all by herself and got a wealth of current information for me. She bundled up all the booklets and mailed them to me. Today I read: Understanding Stem Cell Transplant. So now I do understand modern bone marrow transplant. Cindy drove me home – by way of the local rice bowl vender. Jennifer L. and kids showed up at home to swap recently read books. Like I said, it’s a good Monday!
