Thank you for visiting Grady’s caringbridge page. The journey started nearly two years ago with a lot of strange symptoms. Then the pain in his chest became very intense. The doctors kept checking his heart (which did need two stents) but it wasn’t the main issue. The pain was actually rib pain and it led us down the road of numerous doctor visits, ER visits, hospitalizations, etc...until we finally had a doctor that discovered it was multiple myeloma. He went through four rounds of chemo that did bring his blood numbers back down to a remission...but also gave him intense neuropathy and after four weeks of “remission” his numbers started climbing again. That leads us to the current treatment...stem cell transplant.
