Happy 2022 everyone! 🙂
We are coming up on the 3rd year of Rob’s stem cell transplant anniversary. We could not have made it this far without your support. Thank you!!!
Rob continues treatment for multiple myeloma 3 weeks on, 1 week off. This treatment, called Revlimid, has done a remarkable job at keeping the multiple myeloma at bay. We are so thankful for it, and for the continued guidance of his extremely knowledgeable hematologist and nurses at LCI.
A few weeks ago, Rob got a port to help with monthly infusions. It was done as an outpatient procedure, and he is so thankful for it. The reason for the port is because his veins were “shot” from everything over the past few years, according to the (most amazing and kind!!) infusion nurses. The port allows for much easier access for labs and monthly infusions at LCI.
Rob was diagnosed with a lung condition called bronchiectasis. This is where the lung’s bronchi are permanently damaged and widened. We are thankful for his wonderful pulmonologist who monitors this condition with lung function tests and CT scans.
Next up is Rob’s annual PET scan and bone marrow biopsy. His multiple myeloma labs are looking great, and hopefully we’ll have great news to report after these upcoming tests as well!
Thank you for reading, and for your continued support and love over the years! Finally, a Rob laugh-I asked him if I should put “Catch up Update” for the title of this post, to which he quickly replied with his joyfully mischievous grin, “Why would you put “Ketchup? Everyone knows what Ketchup is”…
