Hello World..

I’ll be posting here semi-regularly to keep everyone up to date on my progress. I’ll also make a few catch-up posts chronicling the journey so far (Diagnosis, Treatment, etc).. In the meantime, you can catch up on the high-level stuff by hitting the TL;DR tab. (for those of you who don’t know what TL;DR means, here you go :))

Tomorrow I’ll be up bright and early for my treatment at UCSF. I’m currently wrapping up my 4th cycle.. Cycles 1 and 2 were RVD (Revlimid, Velcade, Dexamethasone) but were cut short due to surgery and some side effects. Cycles 3–6 are KRD (Kyprolis, Revlimid, Dexamethasone), and each cycle is 4 weeks.

Next week is a scheduled week off of all the drugs.

Forgive me as I learn how to use Medium. I’m sure there will be plenty of construction activity as I get this thing going.
