No Time To Feel Bad Today…I’m Excited To Be Featured At A Book Signing Here In Chicago At The ASCO Meetings…

Rush, rush, rush this morning, as I get ready to head back to McCormick Place for today’s ASCO meetings.

Fortunately, I am feeling pretty good today.  It helps that I am at the end of my post-RVD cycle rest week.

Today is a big day for me.  I am doing a book signing for my book, Living with Multiple Myeloma, from 1- 4 PM in the patient advocacy area of the exhibit hall.

I should have announced this earlier… Guess I’m not doing a very good job promoting the book.  But I’m honored to have been selected to participate at such a prestigious conference.

Too bad I can barely sign the books!  My peripheral neuropathy is so bad, I can’t write in a conventional sense.  At one point, I purchased a label maker, thinking I could type in things like “To Mary from your loving daughter.” But it all seemed cumbersome and a bit tacky.  So now, I merely print “PAT,” in large letters, using a felt tip pen I can grip loosely.

Fortunately, I can still use a keyboard!

A company named Vidacare is sponsoring me today. Vidacare makes a conceptually new, FDA approved bone marrow biopsy drill called OnControl. I will share more about their product, along with other details from my day this evening.

I have an freelance journalist assignment I need to complete before the signing, so I had better move along.
Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
