Hello my dear friends
How are all of you doing? I need your udates as I am not able to get on here too much. I hope that will change in the near future.
I came off my Ketamine drip yesterday and the next cycle will be in a week or so. The headaches have been 9-10 the last four days. I have had a big disappointment in that my trip to Myrtle Beach has been cancelled due to my heath but also some family in law pressure. I know they love me and care about me but I was really ready to do this trip and was not worried. Anyways will have a rain check for next year from my friends. We hope to do something else while I am off the infusion. I will keep my head up.
