Changes Continue At Fast Pase
Wednesday, July 01, 2009 6:31 PM
Changes continue to go too fast to consume any time other than adapting. The first week came days 1, 4 and 8 with the Velcade mix previously mentioned causing such severe side effect that on day 11 it was discontinued and a new plan had to go into effect but with another bone marrow aspiration on Tuesday with a total skeletal exam and labs, the end of the day will be a new regiment and inclusion into a phase II study that has existed for two years on a new drug which has seen no or very limited side effects. The question will be whether it will work for me. Having had 4 units of blood in the past two weeks along with a unit of platelets things are becoming emotionally draining. The blood counts have fluctuated with the infusions but keeping me only at the low end of those desired. After next weeks introduction I will have an indicator when further testing is done. For now I rest a lot and am limited to short jaunts.
I will come again with updates as my mind clears and a desired path is reached. For now I do as much as possible for the mere diversity of the thoughts.
Enjoy every day they’re so precious,

Its now the 17th of July. I'm just reading your entry. I'll call and see if you have had success with the new drug.
You are continually in my prayers. All of you!
