Kevin Drum’s Lympho-Somethings Way Down
Great news on the Kevin Drum front:
I’m 8 weeks through my 16-week regimen of chemotherapy, and last week my doctor ordered up sort of a halftime report on how I’m doing. This is an extended set of lab tests, and today she called to tell me the results.
Apparently they came out great. Unfortunately, I don’t actually remember the names of the protein markers and other things we were looking for, so I have to be a little vague here. Immunoglobulins? Lympho-somethings? In any case, the levels were way, way down, and that’s what we were hoping for. This means the chemo is working well so far and the myeloma is hopefully on the run.
My blog reading of late is down even more than my blog writing, but Kevin’s is one of a handful that I try and remember to check in on periodically. I’m glad I did so this morning.
