Lots of Buddies

We’ve had a spate of Myeloma Buddy production going on over the past few months.  If I’m a bit stuck for something to take out with me or just need something small I knit a Buddy.  When I was thinking of posting the pics I realised that I’d never said where the orange Myeloma Buddy army went last year.

The 100 Buddies were ordered by Myeloma UK – orange or rather ORANGE being their corporate colour.  They are available direct from them and are listed in their site shop right here.  They’re also for sale at their Info Days.

While I’m at it there’s also a link to my Buddies in the FUNdraisers section of the IMF site (International Myeloma Foundation that is not the better known but less fantastic International Monetary Fund).

Mmm, wonder what one would look like in fabric?

Other creative spaces are here.

When I went for dialysis today I asked about the results of the 24 hour wee collection from Monday.  Apparently the level of toxins in it that my kidneys had filtered is not yet normal but is going up.  The blood test showed my calcium level is on the low side even though my Calci-chew dose was increased three weeks ago from 2g a day to 4g so the nurse said she’d get a doctor to review it when I went in on Saturday.  

Myeloma Survivor Car is a FINALIST

Remember this and this, and if not why not?

If you do and you did – THANKS! And I hope you’ve been keeping that mouse clicking finger in shape because the Myeloma Survivor car is a a finalist and so it’s that clicking time again!

Anyhoo all YOU NEED to do (please, pretty please, pretty please with a cherry on top?) is click on the following link and click for the car

Myeloma Survivor NASCAR

and WHEN (everything crossed) the IMF design wins the car will be showcased at NASCAR 2010!  Thus raising awareness of multiple myeloma and costing you nothing other than (10 clicks x ohhh 10* seconds a click) 1 minutes 40 seconds of  your time spread over the next 10 days.  There’s no need to register and it only takes 10 seconds because of the car driving onto the screen with a cool tyre sound!

And you could do what I do you can make it an additional home page so it will load automatically when you click for the internet and the screeching of tyres will remind you to click!

Thank you in anticipation of your clicking!  😀
