I am humbled by your kindness

Let me say.. that each of your posts and sentiment mean the world to me.. your words of comfort are incredibly reassuring to me. And thank you for the prayers...

Things are pretty much the same on the homefront.. but I did want to share this video and voyage of one of our fellow MMers (that is short for multiple myelomers).. This is carpyeditor.. he has a ton of posts on youtube.. but right now he is going through his second stem cell transplant.

He got his high dose chemo yesterday and today he was reinfused with his own stem cells. In 8 weeks or so he will receive a third transplant from someone he doesn't even know... this stem cell transplant is called a mini-allo..and quite frankly carries a risky mortality rate.
I only know carpy through his youtube posts.. he has quite a personality..

I don't really have much more to say... I guess a little numb.. but doing my damndest (is that a word) to stay positive.. hugs to all of you..


  1. I posted a link to your blog on mine sending people your way for more prayers...hopefully people read and did just that.

  2. I didn't even know about the other blog and now I get it. I am so sorry you and your husband are having to endure any of this let alone all of this. My heart goes out to you. You and your family and your husband are in my prayers.

    It's kinda funny, I always thought your blog was a little cryptic...but now I get it. I wish we could just eradicate all health ailments (to put it mildly and to lump all the shite together) from this planet and just be happy healthy people forever.


  3. You and your family are in my prayers, Barb.

  4. Barb, I just saw your other post this morning and you've been on my mind and heart all day. My prayers will stay with you and your family.

  5. Catching up...prayers being said Barb and (hugs) for you.

  6. Barb, the Today show just did a longish segment on multiple myeloma. I'm sure it'll be on their website later today. xoxo

  7. Awww, Sweetness....
    I'm sorry I've been MIA, but it doesn't mean I don't think of you...I do. A lot. I'm sending my most heartfelt prayers your way. Smooches, J

  8. Sending warm thoughts and prayers your way, Barb. Try and stay hopeful. Hugs!
