“The simplicity of it is, we’ve been living our life. Apparently so have many others. It’s a positive.” – Lori Puente, Myeloma Caregiver
I was noticing a few things in my stats and so like following bread crumbs, it took me to old haunts. Blogs. Websites. I began to wonder, “Oh yeah, how are they doing, what’s she up to, etc.” And low and behold I discovered that quite a few peeps stopped their regular blogging like I did. Somehow, for some of us, who get a remission and maybe a medication reprieve, Myeloma seems to no longer be defining us or our daily life. It’s certainly a blessing to have that opportunity no matter how short or long it may be afforded us. Anyway, it was a bit heartening to know that they are out doing their thing, hopefully like we have been.
So I grabbed some photos, a bit of a catch up if you will, to kind of give you a flavor of what’s been happening. Many of you from FB will already be aware, but some of you may not. It won’t be in chronological order most likely. (Trying to figure out where I last left off!)
So I’ll just list the photos and you’ll probably be able to sort it out.
