Relapsed High Risk Myeloma - Update June 30 2013

Almost missed Ann and Chuck as they slipped out early this morning for their drive back to Greeley, Colorado today (680 miles). Sophie likes the carseat bed that I gave her that used to belong to my Rudi-the-paralyzed dachshund.

Rudi (on the front) loved to ride JackRed (4-Wheeler) with Kemmer (on the back) and I. Shown below in 2008.

My on-again, off-again GI tract is moving SOUTH way to quickly this morning. My legs ache and I'm still on Zithromax Day 4 or 5 for my sinuses. I'm tired and plan to be one with my sofa watching golf ALL DAY.

Ken Krishnek came by for a visit - ALWAYS enjoy his visits. He and his wife, Sharon, have a new dog that FOUND THEM 10 Jun 2013. I haven't met Shortie yet. Shortie took an unaccompanied tour of Mackay today, but Ken was finally able to locate him - he needs to be fixed!
Shortie Krishnek, one lucky dog who stopped at the right house when he was lost! However, he has been returned to a "no-kill" shelter now in Boise, Idaho (6 Jul 2013)

I spent most of the day on the sofa....Jani went and visited Dad, but I stayed home. Then, she did the lawn care and cleaned the whole house while I watched from the sofa. We go to St. Luke's Hospital MSTI to for my appointment with the oncologist on Tuesday, 2 July 2013 to get my bone marrow and SPEP results. Hopefully, the results will be such that I can start in on Cycle 3 of the Bendamustine/Revlimid 5 mg/Dex.


  1. nice you get many friends to come and visit you i can only think you are very well liked and a 700 mile drive that is far. lets hope that next year at this time you can drive 700 miles on your own when myeloma is all gone

  2. Yes, it is unbelievable that so many of my life-friends are so willing to drive a mere 700 miles each way to visit me here in Mackay, Idaho...not exactly "on the beaten tract". I'm enjoying each of their visits and hope my energy cooperatives! jm
