Cycle 1 Week 1 Day 2 - Carfilzomib 2nd Dose of Carfilzomib - October 31 2012

Woke with a slight all over headache (1-2 on a 1-10 scale), but otherwise fine. Didn't sleep very well because of the dex, so I worked on my computer several hours during the night.

Checked out of the motel and went to Walmart in Twin Falls, Idaho with Shirley Olsen. We arrived early at St. Luke's Hospital MSTI for my 2nd dose of Carfilzomib for the week and they took me early. No blood draw today.

I took 4 mg of dex orally and then the RN Letia checked my IV that we left in overnight with heparin flush in it. The site looked bruised this morning, but it ran like a charm and we were able to use it today too. 
The nurse hooked me to fluids and the Carfilzomib and more fluids. And it was nice to have Shirley Olsen's company.

I felt fine and throughout the infusions and was able to drive Jonah (1999 Honda Passport) all the way home to Mackay arriving around 4:15 PM.

Got the insurance estimate on Bart (2006 Honda Pilot) deer damage tonight - $4,200.13. The engine doesn't appear damaged beyond the cooling system which is toast.
