My husband is a volunteer firefighter and is at the fire station on Thursday nights. That means I'm on my own for my PIO shots on Thursdays, and tonight will be my first attempt. I think I can I think I can I think I can.
Yesterday also began the complicated oral medication calendar and will continue for six days. I was worried I'd have a hard time keeping track of everything so I put each medication on my Google calendar and printed it out so I can easily cross off each one as I take a med. This has been very helpful and it's extra great because my phone will also offer me pop-up reminders. I recommend doing this to anyone worried about staying organized with meds, appointments, etc.
I'm still feeling pretty nauseated on and off, and the night before last I was up all night - literally until 7am with lots and lots of I-need-to-throw-up sensations. It was so bad that I had to call in sick to work which felt like a total waste because I had to spend the entire day in bed. I'm happy to report that I didn't have any problems last night and got a full night of sleep.
Nothing else new to report, but I'll try to post something more insightful and interesting next time especially since I will have attempted my own PIO shot. May the IF guardian angels be watching down upon me tonight as I give it a good ol' college try. Just counting down the days until our transfer on Monday. It's almost here!
Last, but not least - I have kept my blog very anonymous out of respect for my husband's wishes. But recently he actually gave me the "ok" to post photos of us and name him by his first name. So you'll notice the new blog header and also the "about me". My name is Liz and my husband's name is Kevin. We are pleased to meet you, blog readers. I'll start to refer to him by his name from this point forward. Our donor also says we may use her name, so I no longer need to refer to her as "V". She is Vicky. She is amazing.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
