Just got back from the Dermatologist to have the stitches removed from my Basal Cell Carcinoma surgery, and all the cancer was removed. That’s certainly good news as I was not looking forward to going through that again.
I’m still not free of all bandaging, like I hoped, as the doctor glued 3 steri-strips over the wound. I’m just supposed to resume my normal routine (shower as if they weren’t there), and eventually they’ll fall off in about a week. At least the steri-strips are flesh colored, so they don’t stand out as much as the other bandages did.
There was even more good news this week, as Edie’s Freelights have stopped their upward trend. It looks like the Vorinostat is doing it’s job on Edie’s myeloma. After only two weeks on the drug, Edie’s Free Lightchains, have fallen about 10%. It’s not a huge number, but at least it’s heading in a better direction.
So with all that, and seemingly continued stability on the MCL front, I’m feeling pretty good about things heading into the Memorial Day weekend. I’m pretty sure something will come along to change all that though.
