      Carm, great article! Downbutnotout, everything is relative when it comes to cancer. I went from smoldering myeloma to multiple myeloma in 6 weeks. Four months after I had SCT my levels started climbing. It's not a good sign but the nature of the beast. The positive for me is I have a good doctor watching my levels and managing my cancer. How's your overall health?

      Thanks for the article Carm.

      Charlie, not bad, considering. I do feel like I'm starting to fall apart though. I guess overall I'm still pretty good. Thanks. I appreciate your information.
