Cracked me up reading about
the shot-ya big ole baby lol. Yes, I agree sometimes they do have a way of jabbing ya the wrong way with those shots. I hate needles and I am a pin cushion as it is. You should see the line sticking out of my chest right now, they accessed my port to do the antiboiotic therapy and this sucker is as wide as a nail, its a humdinger one inch long. I had to get this port because my veins are shot and I was doing remicade infusions for my crohns, well I made the mistake one day looking at the this gizzmo they stick in my chest, I nearly passed out. But, the big ace is the size of needle used to stick me in the stomach every 6 weeks to drain the meds from my pump and put new meds in. That's a needle and syringe big enough for a horse, its huge. You can sk Stella Marie she has a pump, she can tell you about
the needle used lol.
Lucky you having a garden this time of year, I am so envious. But, I am very happy that you feel well enough to to plant one, of course I know mom helped with that feat too,lol. Its going to have her close by so you can check on her but yet she will have her own place and still feel independant-awesome good for her. Any green beans or squash going to be planted-how about
tomatoes? Yummy food. be careful.
