Mid COVID times

July 20th, 2020 No comments

A quick note. I am blessed with a remission of this nasty little disease when the world has become obsessed with COVID-19. Thank God I got through all the chemo when there wasn’t this little bug around!

Now I live life to the full. I try to be healthy – walk ridiculous amounts of steps – and eat reasonably. I am fitter than I was and my hair has grown back (which isn’t necessarily a good thing in these COVID times!!!).

An old friend Oscar Chalupsky from South Africa is going through the stem cell transplant now – we sailed together in 1986 and I dont know a fitter guy at the time. Just shows how this horrid thing can hit anyone any time. Anyway – my thoughts are with him and everyone else who is suffering from Multiple Myeloma. I removed the passwords from all of my posts today because when I was diagnosed I had more questions than answers. Maybe by sharing my experience someone else can benefit.

Please if you are suffering from Multiple Myeloma reach out if you have questions. I don’t have all the answers but I do have first hand experience. It’s not nice – of course its not – but it is manageable and we can survive and thrive!

I wish you all the best.
