My hemoglobin can beat up your hemoglobin

If you've read my blog for a while, you know I spent years struggling with low hemoglobin (iron) levels caused by Revlimid and by the myeloma itself. Over the past year or two, though, my hemoglobin has been steadily improving. My hemoglobin is now at a never-before-seen number that I didn't even know was physically possible for me:

All must bow down before my Almighty Hemoglobin!
My nurse practitioner thinks all of my running has improved my blood counts. So I guess as long as I can keep up the marathon training for, oh, the rest of my life, I'll be just fine.
