The best medical expertise is critical but the support and love of friends and family is also vital. The outpouring of support has been very reassuring and greatly appreciated!
This website is intended to keep our friends and family informed and updated about our journey through multiple myeloma. We’re not doctors and don’t pretend to be. So some of our medical explanations may not be 100% accurate. We’ve had so much to absorb and process since Lori’s first symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment.
The most important thing that we’re learning is to take one day at a time. We’ve all heard the expression but now it has new meaning to us. There’s a lot of waiting, anticipating, and hoping.
There is a lot of information we have to process. As we get new – or corrected – information, we’ll pass on what we can. We’re smart people but we don’t understand it all. That’s why we have all the experts and specialists who we have to trust. But we know we still have to advocate for ourselves. The experts are humans dealing with complex issues and systems. Not everything is 100% scientific, predictable, and proven. There’s a lot of subjectivity, opinion, alternatives, and options. We ask a lot of questions and do the best we can.
