2nd ASCT - Day78 - August 4 2012

I've been walking 2 miles each day on the Mine Hill BLM Road which runs north and south just above the cattle guard on the Mine Hill (a rolling foothill road with a gain of 72 feet) and I even walked 2.5 miles one day. Then, yesterday, a giant forest fire broke out north of our Big Lost River Valley above Stanley (107 miles north of Mackay) and filled our narrow valley with smoke. So, I didn't walk August 3 2012 since my lungs are fragile after my 2nd autologous stem cell transplant on May 18 2012.
Well, the smoke continued today, but not quite as thick, and I decided to walk with a R-95 mask. It worked fine and I got my 2 miles in with Jani and the dogs.

Dr. Padavanija's nurse called from MSTI in Twin Falls and I will start my subcutaneous Velcade chemotherapy on Wednesday, August 8 2012 along with the bone builder medicine Aredia (has to run IV for 4 hours), it will be a long day. Takes 2 1/2 hours to drive to Twin Falls and I have to be there at 8:40 AM. They are still working on my oral chemotherapy approval with my insurance. I plan to drive myself.
