Cycle 4 Week 2 Day 2 Carfilzomib/Dex and Day 9/21 Revlimid 10 mg - February 7 2013

Woke this morning in the Twin Falls motel with quite bruise over my Bard Power Port. The area doesn't hurt as much as I thought it would.
Put EMLA cream on and went to St. Luke's Hospital Infusion Center for my 2nd day of Carfilzomib/Dex. I forgot my non-stick pads for the ELMA cream and ended up covering the EMLA with a mask...hoping it would work.

The EMLA worked and RN Letia got right in with a 1 inch Huber needle vs the 3/4 inch needle used yesterday. They used one of the white padded Huber needles that I'm allergic to, but because it was 1 inch it stood above my skin a tad and they put gauze in the space.
Received my carfilzomib 27 metered square dosage and took 4 mg dex orally.

On the road home to Mackay by 9:10 AM. No fog this trip and that was nice...and the hay hauling trucks were clearly visible.

Home around 11:20 AM  28 degrees and partly cloudy. Then, I went to get Kemmer and had a take our hamburger from the Mine Hill Grill - yum.
