I’m sitting in Wild Cherries with a vanilla latte. It’s really quite beautiful here. There are puffy white clouds and super blue sky. You can see snow on the ridges and it’s way cooler than at home. My daughter has her staff meeting so I’m here for an hour or so. Then we’re going to go on a hike/walk and then find some sort of lunch.
There’s a diner that Guy Ferriera went to up here, we thought we might try that or there’s also a new york style pizza place. I guess we’ll see when its time. We’re going to go walk on a trail that’s over by Donner Lake. Yes, the famous Donner party was here. There’s a nice memorial to them plus a museum. It’s so interesting that if they just pushed on that fateful day they would have made it over the pass. Well, the rest is history.
So all my labs have come in and wait for it ……NORMAL!!!
ratio- good 1.27 normal
No m spike
So, this is the 2nd full cycle of normal m protein. But then my light chains went into the normal range after the 2nd cycle. So, one more cycle and then we’ll see. I see my doctor next week and also get my first shot of this last cycle. I’m pretty jazzed as this is the first time since ( I think) 2010 that I’ve had a complete response. Revlimid kept my numbers very low, like .3 , but I don’t know if it went to 0. Maybe once. I definitely nervous about going off treatment but I think it’s probably a good idea. My eyes with the weepiness and styes seems to cycle thru and of course the neuropathy ( although not severe) is there and does seem to affect my legs. I do think the Velcade has probably affected some mental alertness or lack of but I just put one step in front of the other.
So all good.
Not sure what we’re doing for dinner since B and my son went up to Chico. Usually, I do crockpot Thursday, but I didn’t start it before I left.
