I called in to my local oncologist’s office this morning to have them call me when they got the results of yesterday’s bloodwork. I’ve been waiting for a call back all day. I don’t even know if they’re in today. All I can do is wait. One time I called Dr. Richardson at Dana-Farber. He called me back on a Sunday! I bet he never takes a day off.

I want to know what my IgA is, especially. I also need to know my creatinine level, since I have an infusion of Zometa on the 20th. People who are taking thalidomide need to pay close attention to their creatinine when they’re also using Zometa. (All MM patients need to stay on top of their creatinine levels, really.)
