Staying put for a while


Recommended Posts

My official diagnosis is Multiple Myeloma. I will have 2 weeks, 5 days per week of radiation. Then I will have oral and sq chemo once per week. This will all last 4 months. Once I can drive the truck, we will put the jeep on the deck and drive to Plainview ,Tx to see the grandkids. Will probably do Washington state as well to see family. We drive the truck up there but will fly back in th . Middle for my chemo. We will be returning to phoenix every 3 months for several years. We WILL be at the HDT rally in Hutch in October. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Sorry to hear of your diagnosis. We have the best cancer treatment centers here in the Seattle area. Fred Hutch, UK Medicine, etc.

Since you're coming this way, you may want a second opinion?


Food for thought, and may all your luck be good!

Can you "transfer" treatment to Washington for a bit (one set of chemo)? Guy across the street, is having chemo out of M D Anderson in Houston, Tx, and gets 4 treatments (every 2 weeks) here in Mission, tx (500 miles away) and then every 10th week goes up there (Houston) for the physical / tests / one treatment then back to Mission. Except, this week --- they went to M D 2 weeks ago, did the tests and treatment, then went to Missouri (family) and had a treatment there so they could stay for a month.


It would seem that a set of chem treatments could be done anywhere, in the US. They are all the same drugs, we all speak English, it is or should be just a prescription. And they can e-mail, fax, call. I know, head out of the sand, this is really 51 little fiefdoms.

We're looking forward to seeing you in the fall and keeping you in our prayers.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields

and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.


Jim & Wilma
