Health Update

I don’t have much to report this month. I’ve restarted the Evil Dex, but the first dose was only four days ago. Tonight I start the Pomalyst. My M-protein level was stable since last month, which is good news. Maybe this is because it just happened to be stable, or maybe it’s because the dex has already started to have some effect. Who knows? Like the Iraq War, the next few months are always the ones that will tell the story.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
