This past summer I noticed much more afternoon fatigue than normal. Upon encouragement by my wife, I saw my doctor who did a blood test and discovered elevated protrien. He referred me to local oncologist who performed a bone marrow extraction which showed MM.

I am in very early stage so they put me on a pill and steroid. My  system rejected it so I started again with Revlimid and  Dex. Just started so will see how it goes.

Moral of story even though I’m 67,  pay attention to changes in your system. Don’t always assume its an aging thing.

I thank my wife for encouraging me to see the doctor and an attentive one at that!!!
