|Doing my infusion, hubs didn't turn on the flash & we were in the middle of cooking dinner so my kitchen is a mess.|
|Flushing the line. You can see the sock on my wrist that I cut for a PiCC cover.|
|This is Dry Pro PiCC cover. Doesn't work for me. I was hoping I could go swimming, but nooooo. Mine leaks. So no showers. I just sit in 2 inches of water & bathe. And to wash my hair, I do it in the sink.|
I have been away from blogging for a while. Every time I start to blog, I get interrupted. But this is a good thing. That means I am not laying in bed all that much anymore. When I first started the IV Rocephin, I was sleepy for a few days. Then I suddenly felt a little better. Had some strange issue after day 4 where my neck & upper chest felt pressure, but it eventually went away. And I even felt like I could exercise. So I did. I jumped on my rebounder (mini-tramp) 500 jumps. I was told not to get into the cardio zone, so I stopped & started. But the next day, I was done. Haven't exercised since & I think I have only spent 1 or 2 days in bed. Today, I had to run up my stairs & I realized it wasn't horribly painful. So I will definitely work out today.
I am very pleased with my home health nurse. He is awesome & so knowledgeable about the world. So he is nice to be around. I am pleased. He used to come every day in the beginning. Now he comes once a week to draw blood & change my PiCC line dressing. That is something I need to learn how to do on my own though in case insurance cuts me off.
So far, nothing drastic has been noticed, but my symptoms have definitely been reduced. I am just waiting for my cognitive stuff to clear up. I would like to be able to recall the names of things again. :)
I also want to go back to do the MedSonix treatment again. As I think it truly was a tool in my recovery. My joints have not bothered me at all since those 3 treatments. And I think I have only had 2 headaches since. And both were very minor.
I have had a yeast over growth due to the IV Rocephin & the Biaxin, so I am on 10 days of Duflican & doubling up on my probiotics (when I can remember).
