Planned Parenthood decision

Texas has thrown out the suit against Planned Parenthood for what had appeared as “truth” in a heavily, and miseading video put out by an anti-abortion group. In add ition, 2 anti-abortion activists have been indicted.

Leaving aside personal beliefs about abortion, should we not at least be abe to trust the information we are using to make an informed decision is accurate and truthful, unencumbered by activist groups lies and BS.

If you have to lie, cheat, steal to try and make your point, perhaps it’s time to take a look at your point(s). Maybe it has no backbone?!

Revlimid it is…

I was declared in complete remission on Monday last. Deciding on a maintenance regimen took most of this past week’s brainpower, emotions, energy.

After much discussion, reading more studies than I care to cite, discussions with the doctor, I decided to go with Revlimid versus nothing.

Revlimid for myeloma

Quick facts: myeloma time to remission=3-4 yrs.; Revlimid might add 25% to time to relapse; worst side effect is potential secondary cancer; no matter what I’ll be having another transplant when myeloma returns, which it will no matter what I do.

Then there’s the kicker, the bottom line: all this odds thrown out the window because NOBODY KNOWS what might happen either way!!!

Myeloma could return in 6 months or 15 years!!!

All I know is I’m shooting for 85 so I can see the grandkids grow up.

Almost home, well sort of

Did the MMT chemo education piece today. Good detail. Too long, but informative.

I am in a better emotional space than previously. Therefore I am able to deal with the medical details better. And I love learning about all this.

Huntsman does an excellent job of inclusion with patients.
