Happy Halloween! As I write this, the Trick or Treaters occasionally interrupting. Cute kids!

Today, I had my blood drawn at Lynn Cancer Institute by one of my favorite phlebotomists, Carolyn. I’ll get my results next Wednesday when I meet with Warren. I’m looking forward to no worse than last time. With that news, I’ll push for staying on the curcumin therapy until such time as it may not work anymore. The blogger at Margaret’s has been on this therapy for several years. If the numbers are not so good, then I’ll have to plan on the Stem Cell Transplant.

The peripheral neuropathy (PN) is still very much with me; I still think that it gets slightly better each week. I’m getting on the recumbent bike 2-3 times a week and take B-12, B-6, Folic Acid, and Biotin each day. All of these are reported to help with neuropathies. The B-6 and Folic Acid are part of my regular multivitamin. The Biotin is a separate supplement at 5,000 mcg (5 mg) per capsule, as is the B-12 at 2,500 mcg (2.5 mg) per sublingual tablet. I can’t tell you whether any one of these is necessarily helping or if the PN would be going away by itself. But, I can tell you I’ll continue to do all these things because the PN is getting better, albeit slowly. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. These are helping too!

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your healing.
