You are amazing to keep going but life is worth living no matter what comes your way. I too am a Multiple Meloma patient that was diagnosed with stage II in July 2008. I have been on Dex and Revlimid. my doctor says I have responded well to that treatment but has never had a patient that has yo-yo’d so much I took treatment treatment of the drugs for 7 months and my numbers were low enough that he gave my body a rest. I was okay for 17 months then he put me back on treatment. Two months later I had to start treatment again. I have had two relapses. and my numbers are going back up again. Soon I will be on my 3rd relapse.
I work full time and have only missed a day of work since 2008. I think God everyday for the time I have to spend with my husband of 48 years, my 2 childred, and 4 grandchildren. Tomorrow is a great day because it is my 69th birthday.
Thank you and your wife for all you do to keep us informed, God bless you and I wish for a speedy recovery and it will last a long time.
