 An addition of thing's to keep an eye on. On Thurs. I was admitted to the hospital for 2 days from colitis. As we understand it, it's an intestinal infection. When your white blood cell count goes below recommended levels you have a greater chance of getting an infection. So washing hands is one of the best ways to keep infections down. Also check with a dietitian as food has a great impact.

 It's been a week now and I'm hovering between feeling ok and feeling sick to my stomach. And that feeling can go back and forth all day long. Been off the chemo meds for 3 weeks now and I think this has something to do with this latest problem. Thur. I can start the chemo meds again but only for 14 days on 14 days off to see if this changes things. Dr. said he didn't think my body can handle 21 on 7 off. Did 2 turns twice and both times the white blood cells suffered for it. Guess we'll see ;D .

 Today is my 1st birthday 8) a year ago today they returned my stem cells back into my body. They harvested them a month before. On the 22nd of march 2017 they gave me a real high dose of chemo therapy,to kill the cells then waited 2 days for the chemo to work. With the stem cell transplant on the 24th it was to put good cells back in and keep the Multiple Myloma to a minimum that way they can keep it under control. Long winded definition of being 1 yr old ;D .

Ed, 
My heart goes out to you and your family.  I personally have never battled cancer, but like so many others, I have lost close family members to it.  Both my dad and my grandad passed away from lung cancer.  I think about that a lot.

With that said, I am praying for you brother.  I do not know if you are a religous person or not, but I know God heals.  He has a plan for you and He told us that He would never challenge us with something that we could not overcome with His help.  I have gone through many peaks and valleys in my life.  When I have been on a peak, it would not be long till I was in a valley.  I have wondered about why that is.  Then, God revealed to me one day why; when someone is on a peak, there is no room to kneel.  When all is great in my world, I have a way of slipping away a little from God.  Then, something will come along that makes my head spin.  Plus, they seem to get harder everytime.   I beleive God puts us in the valleys to test our faith in Him.  Like I said, I have been through many valleys before.  Sometimes, I became very mad at God, and it took time to work through that.  But, everytime my relationship with Him became stronger.  God Bless you, and keep us informed.
