I was first diagnosed with myeloma on April 12, 2011.  I was in Piedmont Hospital (Atlanta) recovering from knee replacement surgery. As I attempted to re-position myself in my hospital bed by using the overhead trapeze bar, my left humerus broke just below the shoulder joint. OUCH !  

A bunch of tests later, diagnosis confirmed.  

The knee is doing GREAT !  The arm is now healed, with the help of radiation therapy.

Stem cell replacement therapy is underway. Harvest was finished on 12 Sept. Next comes the replacement therapy on 5 October.

Talk about a life changing event !
