April 1, 2010

Had my 33rd Velcade Infusion on Monday (March 29, 2010). CBC's were all good and in the normal range and generally better than on March 3, 2010 results (closer to mid-range); so was BP. M-spike had increased to 1.1 from 1.0; however, Kappa LC had dropped to lowest ever of 2.69 (this is a decrease from 3.3 on March 3. Igg dropped to 1378 from 1451 (this is good); my lowest Igg was 1363. The plan is that I will continue to do Velcade once a week until about mid-May, at which time I will drop off chemo for about 3-weeks while we go to Europe for 2 weeks.

After we get back from Europe, we will start discussions on stem cell transplant using my own cells.

Also March 30, was my one year diagnosis date.


  1. Thank you for all that you have posted! My dad is about a year behind you on diagnosis. He begins treatment on Monday. It's my hope and prayer that your trip to Europe is going great right now! Blessing to you and your wife!

  2. Have a wonderful trip and best wishes for many many more yearly anniversaries to celebrate.
