The best laid plans...
Yesterday, the appraisal lady called to cancel. Too cold and windy. I agree, she walks from house to house, I wouldn't want to do it! However, here I was up and waiting for her.
Then, I started thinking, why I am pushing myself today to do everything, when it is the worse day of the month for me?
So, I called, spoke to the assistant at the Children's Center, and rescheduled Hammer's appointment for his Asperger's visit, for next week. I explained to her that with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus, this cold was just so nasty, and I wasn't feeling my best. She was very understanding!
The orthodontist was a must. All went well there. Fuzzy doesn't have to be seen again, until after the rest of his baby teeth fall out and the new ones grow in. That could take a year a two. Hammer had rubber bands added to his daily regimen!
To be honest, I was really worried. Hammer has, in the past, struggled with fine motor issues. Hooking these itsy bitsy rubber bands on the hooks, well, again, I was worried.
No need! He did it two times with the orthodontist and ta da! Piece of cake! He got it down, easily and has been doing it perfectly since then! Yay!
After the orthodontist, I took a vicodin for my elbow. My left elbow was swollen, red, and painful. My entire left arm, wrist, and hand was throbbing. I rarely take a whole vicodin, but I needed it. It did help, but I took another at 10pm and tried to sleep.
I had that fitful sleep where your dreams are strange and the pain wakes you every time you roll over until about 3am. Then, after a bathroom trip at 3am, I conked out into a deep sleep until the alarm.
It took us 2 hours to fight our way into the city and to the hospital. Three quarters of that was trying to get over the darn bridge. There were accidents from slippery ice and snow this morning at the other highways, so everyone was on ours! Ugh.
The snow left only about 2 inches, but it was messy and with the 15 degree temps, it was just right to foul up the morning commute. My luck! lol
My infusion of the Orencia IV went fine though. After we got home I took a nap from 2 - 4pm. I am still tired. My elbow still hurts. It should get better soon!
I am really behind on journal alerts, but I promise, I will catch up, but probably not until tomorrow!
