Hello again J-land!
I ended up doing a little trip to the hospital ER this weekend!
Never a dull moment, eh?
My arm was very painful along the vein where my IV had run on Wednesday for my rheumatoid arthritis medicine. I called my internist when it was not getting any better on Saturday and she told me to go directly to the ER.
First, I showered, but then I went to the ER. I mean, a girl has gotta do what a girl has gotta do right? lol
After much sitting and waiting they did a Doppler test on the arm to be sure that it was just phlebitis, which is an irritation of the vein as opposed to thrombosis which is a clot.
A clot would be bad.
Thankfully, it was NOT a clot, just a very irritated vein, which after 3 IV infusions in a row, I will not use next month, and I will begin to alternate sides.
Apparently, my veins are not only difficult to find, small, and roly poly, but they are sensitive too! @@ Sheesh!
I still have and had a head cold all weekend (ugh), but my flare is officially over and my joints feel good! Or as good as they ever get! Yay!
Sunday we went to see the movie 'RV' with Robin Williams. Lordy, what a funny movie!!! I laughed so hard, I almost wet my pants! It was also a sweet movie about connecting with your family, dealing with teenagers, and what is really important in life.... LOVE!
Yesterday, was a quiet day at home because Fuzzy had a miserable headache and wanted me to watch tv with him in my bed all day. So I did. We watched 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' on A&E and that was good.
Then, we watched the Yankee game and that was good, too, because they won! Yay!!! Wooohooo!!! Go Yankees!
School is almost over for the kids, thank goodness! They have 'short timers disease' and really want out! I do, too.
No schedules, no reports, no projects = NO STRESS!!!!
The kids are really great, they love to learn and read, so, all summer they will keep up do fun and educational things without even being asked to do it! It is really nice and fun for me, too.
Signing off for now...
