    Hi Janice, I am doing fairly well. Just tire easily. My doctor has put me back on Kyprolis (one of the first meds I took 5 years ago). I am getting the IVs two days a week right now. I just went today. After I read that a lot of MM patients actually die from pneumonia, I decided to get a pneumonia shot. I got it yesterday. It seems like I might have a little rash....I'm going to watch it. How are you doing...and what's going on with you now?

      So glad to hear that you are doing well! I think it is a good thing that you got the pneumonia shot. I have had two. From what I have read it is usually some type of infection related to being immunocompromised that results in death.
      I am doing well. I am so blessed to not have had to take any meds for MM since shortly after my transplant. About 4 years ago, I started showing a M spike but it has gone back and forth from .2 -.4 and I have been blessed to not have to go on maintenance. One of my local Dr's says he believes it is a MGUS, but my Dr. In Houston thinks it is the MM. I pray that it doesn't go up and that it is MGUS. I know that I have truly been blessed these 11 years and I would never complain about the quality of my life. I could never express my gratitude for all that God has given me! I hope and pray that you continue to do well! Enjoy all that God gives you! Merry Christmas!
