PACE round four TBD

At the oncologist today for a Velcade shot and office visit to check blood counts.  Nothing’s needed yet but I have to come back in a few days since my absolute neutra-something count and my platelets are trending down.

According to Megan the NP, the Myeloma labs drawn today will dictate whether I do a fourth round of the VTD-PACE chemotherapy — should have the numbers by the end of the week.

Mixed on what I hope for.  After making a side joke about how I wish someone would tell my wife how hard these treatments are, Megan said each round of PACE is like doing induction chemotherapy for Leukemia.  That means nothing to me but apparently it’s a way to explain things to folks in the know?

Father, husband, portfolio manager, cancer victim (multiple myeloma since 2013). Trying to navigate this goddamn disease as best I can while enjoying what time I have left via those relationships, friends, the UFC, gaming, MMJ, diving and helping teach it before this all went down as a PADI Assistant Instructor and a Dive Guide at the Denver Aquarium (well, before my white blood cell count went to shit thanks to the chemo/disease).
