Change Of Plans...

     It was just supposed to be 3 IVs of Solumedrol, which I had Friday, Saturday, and Sunday...I had some EXCELLENT pain-free days in there, too.  Until this morning...

     Today started out with a raging headache, pounding on my temporal and frontal skull.  I tried to navigate to the bathroom, only to find my legs were as heavy as logs and almost as coordinated.  I believe someone has cinched a very tight rubber band around my upper chest, which has made breathing a bit less fun also.

     Emails back and forth with Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named..."What's wrong with me?", etc., etc.  I think it's some strange infusion/steroid reaction...she thinks it's not ENOUGH steroids.  I didn't have these symptoms BEFORE the Solumedrol...she's ordered two more IVs of the stuff.

     That which doesn't kill us, makes us........sigh in wonderment.  If only my ribcage would allow a deep inhalation to sigh....

You are so much stronger than I could even imagine being.  Seriously.....I'm in awe of you.  Life is hard at times.  No if's, and's or butt's.
