Here’s some news

I got a dog!

It’s been some years since my faithful dog Buddy died rather suddenly. I’ve missed him terribly. A few months after his death, I adopted a sick old collie, who I took care of until kidney failure took her life.

This summer, I was working on a client’s network (the client is Five Points Pet Resort), when I realized there was a cute little white dog following me around, wagging his tail and just looking all happy and goofy.  I asked one of the staff, “What’s the story on that little dog?”  She told me that he had been found wandering a country road a few months ago.  Someone dropped him off there, at the resort, hoping they could find his owner.  They tried for two months to either find his owner or a new home for him.

He’s a crazy little guy.  I always had older dogs, which are usually pretty calm.  He’s the first small dog for me, and the first dog I’ve ever had that was under 5 or 6 years old.  The vets he’s been to think he’s probably between one and two years old.  He’s a wild little shredding machine!

His name is Philo.  He loves to run and play, and loves to chew up stuff.

Stay tuned for blood test results later this month.

About Beth

I was diagnosed with MM in January of 2003. I underwent various treatments, including thalidomide/dex, revlimid/dex, dex alone, a clinical trial of CNTO 328, and Velcade, Doxil and dex until late August, 2007, when I had an autologous stem cell transplant after high dose melphalan. I experienced what's known as a very good partial response (VGPR). Since then, my myeloma has been stable.
