And I'm havin' lotsa fun, roll me over, lay me down, and do it again. Mon. P.M., comes shot # 2 ,and I know just what to do, (RMO,LMD, ADIA). So, with wk.# 0 out of the way, I've only got 47 wks. to go. DIE DRAGON DIE...... Onward cootie killers...So, other than an evening feeling like I was laid out on a workbench, with a vise @ the hips, and C-clamps on various joints, in the hands of Marquis de Sade, and a day feeling as if I'd been the main course at a mosquito convention, I'm feeling super duper. No, really it wasn't quite so bad as all that. My mom musta told me a million times not to exaggerate like that. (Shaking my head in shame). I guess my get up and go, kinda got up and went. But, as we all can see, I'm feeling pretty good, all things considered. I knew that we were ready for a bit of humor, and was it: Medicmommy, Deb,sfbaygirl????? who said she could hardly wait for me to start Tx, (so I could write about my wonderful Sx.) Well, this one's for you, (whomever said that).
The only trouble I had was being sure I did the redipen correctly, I wasn't sure if I did the dose properly, but the nurse, called to check on me, It's a very tiny needle which I stick into my leg, tummy, etc. @ a 45degree angle, push the plunger down with my thumb, while holding the pen with my four fingers curled around it ... I inject the dose and count "one thousand...one, one thousand two, etc. up to 5 seconds, then pull out the needle, and toss it, needle first into my sharps container, I left out the parts about the alcohol, wipe prior, and the slight pressure post shot.
I'm sure you get my drift. I also left out the part about getting the redipen....... redi! (ready).
I continue to keep you all in my prayers, and they are: that you and 'yours', (ie, husbands, wives, family, ferals, etc. are well and getting through all this as tolorably as possible. With love and hugs, Ant B
