The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.

Today’s post title is a quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn that I really liked…As I liked this one:

You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

Yeah! (Not that you’d ever catch me on a surfboard, mind you…)

Oh, speaking of waves, earlier this afternoon I came across a new FDA safety announcement about the risk of kidney (renal) failure in patients on an osteoporosis treatment drug called Reclast, which is zoledronic acid. Now, since a lot of myeloma patients take Zometa, which is also zoledronic acid (!), I thought I should publish the link to this FDA warning: 



  1. When I remember certain things, sometimes it is just a moment… and would have been lost except for what followed it, making it a moment-ous spot in time. Anyhow, it’s like remembering the phone call that I got telling me my relative had MM… I don’t remember the words that followed “I have something to tell you and don’t interrupt me,” but I remember hearing that… curious, isn’t it?

  2. I believe I have mentioned before that I take AHCC
    in the morning on an empty stomach (2 caps) –It is expensive and I believe that I should be taking 2 more caps before bed– however monetary concerns prevail at this point!
    Recently, I have included 3 caps of Australagus in my regimen as well. (supposedly helps to produce Interferon).
    I also take 8,000 mg of curcumin w/bioperine each night with either cod liver oil, borage oil or flaxseed oil cap.
    next labs: early Oct. –so we’ll see what’s happening.
    Going into my 6th year of smoldering !!
