Okay day two on these things. Right now I am hooked up, but so far so good. IV kinda hurts today while infusing, but I suppose that is from being outside looking at the flowers for the last thirty minutes... I think the fluids are a bit icy now lol which can cause the acky pain. IV is still good...which is very good because I am a hard poke. It only took the nurse two tries yesturday =) Normally it takes at least three tries.
I am chewing gum too to help with the bitter taste this med leaves in my mouth and I am planning on NOT leaving my home today or this chair as much as possible! Although, I am having family lunch/dinner at my house today so I am going to have a house full... But my husband is taking care of everything and this morning I have my two brothers and one of their girlfriends here helping with everything too. (SO much testosterone lol, especially when my grown nephew and one of my husbands friends get here hehe).
I tried to get the IV in my left hand (I am right handed) but it is in my right hand. A little quirk about it being there is, well, that is my dominant hand... Makes going to the restroom interesting...
I know I overdid it yesturday, and I hope to not do that today. Sundays are a big deal in my family where we all get together and eat and socialize. Normally it is done at my mom's house in the next town over (long drive) so I am thinking having it at my house would be less stressful, especially since I think it is nice when they come over here anytime.
I will keep everyone posted on how today goes. Thank you all again for your support, it makes everything a little easier to handle.
