Very sorry to hear Barry. Only had the pleasure to meet up with you once at CF during the Prius debacle. Have you considered the option of having your oncologist partner with MD Anderson in Texas? There are dozens of studies underway at MD Anderson in regards to various types of blood cancers.

Will certainly put you on our prayer list.

Hi Don,

the treatment program I am in is partnered with Johns Hopkins oncology!  I am confident I will be treated successfully.  I had a very good day of treatment today.  Yesterday was one of those rare bad days, so far most days are good!  I appreciate all the prayers, I really do think prayer helps a lot!

BTW, may my red Prius Rest In Peace!

2010 -2017. Someone made an illegal left turn causing me tee-bone him.  Neither car survived, my passenger was hurt worse than I!  I miss that car, my current orange  Prius does not meet the standards of the old Prius!

 

I have fond memories of that trip to the mountain.  I hope to make it next year!

Glad you are partnered with one of the big boys Barry. JH is an excellent facility. Went there for removal of a cancerous prostate about 11 years ago. Still cancer free today. Great choice. You continue to be in our prayers for a successful outcome.

Update:  I am doing ok, I have a lot of neuropathy from the chemo , otherwise I am doing ok.  Frustrated that I cannot work until I reach remission.

 

My younger daughter Melissa started a go fund me page.  If anyone is interested send a message I can forward the link.

Update:  some of you know I’ve been having a very tough time on chemo!  It’s been destroying my white blood cell count!

 

my oncologist is starting a different treatment starting Friday, also Friday I get the results of how the last four weeks is on killing the myeloma cells.  

hard to believe it’s been 3 months of treatment.  It sure is getting old.

 

my new treatment could be worse, he is hoping not.  Trying to get where I am not in continuous isolation.  I can’t have visitors or go out other than medical treatments.  I really do miss working!  
 

im hoping new treatment will allow me more energy do I can return to projects!  I have a few items to sell if I ever get back to them.

 

My daughters have been great support, not seen them in a long time but talk with them s lot.  Amanda my oldest has Covid, and my younger one Melissa, is showing symptoms.

 

I do appreciate all the well wishes, even though I do not post much, I pop in here daily!

 

til next time!

 

Live long and Prosper! 🖖

All the best to you, Barry, and best wishes as well to your daughter, Amanda, for a quick recovery.

 

I hope the new treatment works far better, and is far easier on you. 

 

Let us know if and how we can help!  

 

 For you - Live much long and Prosper even more! 🖖
