Hello! I have postponed my appointment tomorrow of my rheumatoid arthritis IV medicine, Orencia.
My husband has a big work issue that is interfering with the day. He was still going to take me to the appointment and then bring me home, but then he was going to rush back into NYC to work. This work thing involves letting go some of his men and restructuring and phasing out his division. This is not a surprise, it has been coming for a while, but on Monday, his bosses chose Thursday to be the day.
Although Hubby is not losing his job, many are, and it is not going to be an easy day.
I chose to postpone the IV even though Hubby told me not to do so.
The bottom line is that I did if for me, as much as for him. He will be distracted, getting lots of calls, and totally stressed out about having to deal with me and then rushing back into NYC after.
I don't want him to be that stressed, but I also don't want all that stress and tenseness around me either. I have my own issues and worries on IV day, (will they get my blood easily? will the IV go in okay? etc) and selfishly, I want his focus on me, as my support system.
So, I will wait until Tuesday morning for the IV. I will be sore a few days longer, but it will be worth it. For us both, in the long run.
My Hubby doesn't get why I feel this was necessary... but, just like Einstein above... he probably never will! ;-D
We had more snow, a nice blanket of white, but it disappeared quickly, as it was just about an inch again.
Tomorrow night the rumor is 4 inches of snow. Wouldn't that be great? I think so, and so do the kids!
