 I had another visit with our main oncology doctor yesterday. I finally heard some words I've waiting on for quite awhile.
 "The myeloma cells are in REMISSION." I went in on the 18th for a full blood test where they check a lot of different things. One of the tests checks for myeloma cells in the blood stream. They couldn't find any. That doesn't mean they're all gone, myeloma is non curable. But not finding any is a good thing. Now I will be on a medicine that should keep the myeloma in check for hopefully many yrs. The schedule will be 21 days on 7 days off. The worst part is 21 pills cost $3k. I hope Rita's insurance keeps me till her retirement and medicare after that. I couldn't cut enough timber to pay that much.
 Thank you all for reading this long post. I hope it will help someone else in need of the information. Long story short, ASK questions,don't let anyone keep you in the dark.
