Thanks, Kathleen. Right now, the job is part time, so I don't get vacation days.  But that also means I can pretty much take time off whenever I can afford it.  Soooooo...............  we may take you up on that coffee.

Now, I have more good news.  I just got home from seeing my oncologist.  I have not received (or needed) a chemotherapy infusion since February.  In the past 6 months, there has been a 75% reduction in the serum paraprotein level, which means I am now in partial remission!  The effects of the myeloma - loss of bone density, damage to kidneys, bone pain, etc. - will not go away, but they are not getting any worse.  This is probably the best news I could have hoped for, and it looks like you good folks may be stuck with me for quite some time yet.   Cheesy
Awesome news. We should throw a party
