Hey everyone...

It has been a while since I have posted.  Waiting for things to move forward but they seem to stay the same on multiple fronts.

First:  My Myeloma... They did a test and my PN isn't related to it.  That means that my myeloma is asymptomatic.  That's good news.  They want me to go to a neurologist to do more testing.  If I have what they suspect, I just would rather not know, so I will stay on my PN meds and tough out the bad days and rejoice on the good days.

Second:  My Clavicle and the three broken ribs.  It mostly doesn't hurt.  Mildly aches from time to time.  I'm over 2 months out since the accident and I still have no bone growth,  My Ortho surgeon just smiled and said " you are over 50" !  Thanks for that ... I go back the end of September to check it again.  I do expect bone growth then based on how well I feel.  No bike riding until the Spring of 2013 :-(.

Last:  My job is still great.  Hard to believe I landed such a great job.  God smiled down on me with this one.

So....  All in all things are going well.  I continue to pray for all my Myeloma blog friends and work hard to be thankful for the blessings God has chosen to send my way.

The body is sick, but thanks to Jesus the soul is alive and well...


  1. You are one tough man, Steven... Even for a Marine.

    Blessings to you and your family.

  2. Praying for bone growth and improvement in the PN! Otherwise rejoicing that the job is going well. So wonderful that you can continue to work and you'll be back on your bike in no time!

  3. Steven,
    Good to hear from you. Sounds like the job is working out to get those ribs fixed so you can get back on the bike.
    Our best to you and yours....
