Hi everyone!! How are you all doing today!! Is the sun shining brightly at your end of the world?? It sure is here!! I will go outside soon. i have not felt well today, hence the reason for still being in bed. i had my massage today and check by the chiro and the massage wiped me out pretty bad. It feels good but my headache is still 9/10. Bummer. I was also nauseted so I took some gravol whhich has helped. My nurse also came to change my picc line. I've had an off week with feeling down, crying, scared, tired of all the pain everyday. Some days i still wonder how i will ever get thru all of this. We will be starting the next cycle of Ketamine Easter Monday and go from there. The dr., hubby and I will meet next week. One day at a time right!!!
On a better note, we are leaving for Vermont tomorrow morning, Killington actually. My son, his buddy, and hubby will ski and I will do some major R and R and check out the town. The place where we will be staying had internet (so I can talk with all of you)indoor pool (except have to cover my picc line and keep it dry) and a hot tub. fireplace in the room two. Won't even need to share the bathroom with the boys, as they will have their own. So it sounds pretty nice to me. Can't wait to get there!! I am so anxious to have this break in scenery and routine. i need it badly as I have been in bed the better part of two years.
Well that's about it for me. If you live near Vermont give me a shout incase we can hookup while \i am there.
Hope you can all have a low pain day this weekend as the temperature is suppose to be unbelievably warm!
