Expecting good news and hopefully the clock has been considerably reset to buy more time and hopefully hang on until curative treatments surface.

Been extremely busy these last few months. My girlfriend (now fiancé) has already seen me at my worst and yet had stuck by my side. She really knocked down some walls that I had built to protect myself from the damage done to me by my XW. Didn't think those wall would be there, but they certainly revealed themselves as my fiancé was relentless in getting close. Unfortunately, she is from India (a whole 'nother post in itself) and had to return just yesterday. Lots to do to make arrangements.

Just don't have time for cancer, folks.

Thank you for the thoughts everyone.
Hi, how are you doing? Are you married yet?

People don't get a free pass to cheat just because their marriage sucks.

Hi...dropped in the's been a while for me since I have been swept up in life, and that's a good thing, you know?

No, not married yet, but the whole visa process has gone smoothly so far with no problems with my petition and it getting approved. Just waiting to hear word for when my fiancé's interview at the consulate will be scheduled.

Was not at all looking to be married...and neither was she. I know her family at my church and she happened to be visiting, and being of similar age and experience, we just hit it off. Nuts, I tell you.

As for my health, I am still doing okay. My second stem cell transplant did nothing for me, and it wasn't too long when my numbers were the same as they were before I started. Attempted a clinical trial, but again, did nothing for me. But for now the multiple myeloma still under control with a standard cocktail. Just not sure what the next steps will be at this stage. If we get more aggressive, then we are looking at some elevated risks...and I can't do chemo forever. The answer will come.

Prayers for you, brother.

In the interim, enjoy your time with you fiancé! Very cool!
