2014 -

H1/7/14 M-spike .4
1/14. Contemplating LTD due to ineffectiveness at work. 
1/21/14 m-spike .3

2/4/14 Zometa. M-spike 0.4

2/18/14 My m-spike is 0.4 again.  that’s 4 times in a row over 2 months that it has been either 0.3 or 0.4.  Doctor says that we should just continue to watch and be optimistic, but at same time they indicated that the treatment may be coming to an end.  If it goes to 0.5 for a few in a row, then according to the study, they boot me off.  Nothing to worry about, I may be on this for quite a while yet.  Also, I have to be very thankful that I’ve been on this almost 5 years, which is unheard of.  Also, there are lots of new study’s available along with FDA approved treatments that I haven’t tried yet.

Spoke again to nurse about LTD. They will support me. It's really a decision between me and my insurance company.
