Lambda light chains dropped a bit, too, while kappa light chains remained the same. I'm not sure that means anything, except it can't be bad.
Calcium has bounced around in recent months, and it's back up again. We discussed doing a skeletal survey, to check for bone lesions, but Dr. LH said that if the calcium is coming from bone lesions, it isn't likely to go down again next month. So we'll hold off for a month and see. She suggested that better hydration might improve the calcium numbers, and I think she's right - I know that I don't drink enough water. I need to figure out some easy way to fit proper hydration into my life so that it happens automatically. Yeah.
I haven't been blogging here much lately, because we three have been on the road a lot, but we're going to the ASH Conference in December and I hope to blog several times while there.
