- M-Protein remained chill at 0.7 (click here to see the graph after cycle #5)
- Kappa Free Light Chain dropped by 50% (again)...sweet
Although the M-Protein looks to be leveling off, that fact that my Kappa Free Light Chain continues to show great downward movement tells us there is still a lot to celebrate. Some Myeloma clinics put more emphasis on Light Chains than the M-protein, so either of these numbers moving down significantly is a good sign!
As for a quick update on the Baby Drama...through advice/thoughts/comments/prayer from friends, family and bloggers...I think we continue to realize that my health is #1 priority and whether the transplant happens when we want it to will play second fiddle.
There were several comments that I found very wise which said that our second daughter will be more interested and impacted in the moments I spend with her after birth, than the first moment she enters into the world. This really resonated with me and helped me put in perspective that what ever treatment I need and its timing is priority right now. There is so much to think about in terms of logistics with two kiddos at home and a pregnant wife, but thankfully we are sitting on a gold mine of support. I have no clue how we are ever going to repay all the care and generosity we have received to date, let alone all that is still to come. All I can say is thanks....maybe free Michigan Football tailgating in the Fall?????
