Today is a travel day. The first day of a very busy week.
There is so much new info to share with you! New ways to chip-away at pain management issues, inspirational stories about our fellow myeloma survivors and lots of news about the upcoming American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meetings in Chicago. There will also be an in-depth reports about amyloidosis and MDS. And I never shared details about my exciting trip to New Orleans, where I had the opportunity to speak to a large group of oncology nurses during the ONS 37th Annual Congress.
I’m not sure I can fit it all in. But it will be fun trying!
I’m feeling pretty good today. My bone pain is manageable. My peripheral neuropathy (PN) is under control–something as simple as adding an extra 300 mg neorontin (trade name: Gabapentin) at noon each day has helped a lot. Plus, my lovely wife, Pattie, is traveling with me. That always helps me feel better!
Make sure you check-out yesterday’s post: Two unexpected acts of healthcare kindness. It never ceases to amaze me how many opportunities there are for those of you who work in healthcare to positively affect a patient’s life.
Little things can make such an amazing difference!
Anyway, got to run! Stay tuned–and don’t forget to feel good and keep smiling! Pat
