May 1, 2010 Last night I began my treatment protocol. Took a Ribasphere after dinner, and waited for the shot until I was ready to go to sleep. It's amazing how easily it all came back; shaking the vial, attaching the needle, picking out a site, etc. Steve was a tower of strength, and got it all ready for me, but I still like to do the injection myself.
I had a good night's sleep, and woke up feeling groggy. But, ask my family, I am not a morning person on the best of days! I have taken it easy all day, took a 3 hour nap at noon, and actually went on an outing alone in my car to pick up dry cleaning! After several cups of coffee, I switched to water. At least 80 oz is recommended for me a day! It will take me a while to work up to that, but I am definitely thirsty and dry.
I'm now trying to make a decision about attending a birthday party this evening. I really want to go and proved to myself that I won't let this get me down, but there's a part of me that wants to stay home. I have another hour to make a decision!
Thank you to everyone who has offered good wished on my blog! I am flattered that so many checked it out as soon as I shared the address! I'm working on a counter for viewers, but haven't figured out the tech part of that yet!
