Today is Rd 2-4. I forgot to take my dexamethasone this morning so I will take it tomorrow.

I met with Warren this afternoon to review my most recent blood work. My M-spike was up slightly to 0.7, it was 0.6 last time. All my other numbers are good. Warren suggested going up on the Revlimid from 15 mg/day to 25 mg/day. I told him that I thought that my peripheral neuropathy symptoms were getting slightly worse. Revlimid is known to cause peripheral neuropathy in about 6% of patients. I told him that I was reluctant to go higher because of the neuropathy. We agreed to wait for the next blood test on February 1st, and my appointment on February 7th.

Other than the neuropathy, I really do feel great. I am sleeping well, and occasionally feel tired during the day. It’d be nice for some good news on the M-spike, though.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing.
