Thank you, everyone, for all your support with my Hubby and the coffee dilemma!
I am happy to report that I am sipping a wonderful Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee, purchased last night in a set of four, as I type this.
We talked it all out and I think now Hubby understands that this little thing, although it can be an inconvenience, goes a long way toward helping me cope with my busy days!
Yesterday, I had my last Orencia treatment as part of a study. I will continue on the drug, by IV each month, but now my insurance will pay for it.
Although nothing will change, I am a little sad. I will still go to the same Infusion Center as I always have like when I was on Remicade. I will still get to see all the wonderful RN's that cared for me there, that put in my IV's and do my blood, but I will not see, Peggy, the study RN anymore.
It was nice having Peggy there. I know it was her job to supervise my care, but she is such a great person and went way above and beyond doing 'just a job', by getting to know me and letting Hubby and I get to know her.
I will email her occasionally, and she promised to stop in and visit when she can when I am getting my IV.
My finger is still sore and acting strangely. It is 'triggering' for those who know what that is, and for those that don't it is when your joint sticks and then pops. That isn't so bad, a few of my fingers do that, but occasionally it feels like the tendon gets pinched and that makes me jump through the roof for a second, and then it releases. UGH.
Anyhow, we have had some wacky thunderstorms here too, and there are lots of people without power, and trees and branches down everywhere.
Wewere lucky, just small branches and a five minute power outage. Phew!
Pumpkin's friend is late for the play date, and she is about to cry, so I have to go deal with this for a while!
Hope you are having a good day in your neck of the woods!
