I went to bed last night around 1:00AM, only to awaken abruptly at 2:00AM frantically trying to find a snake I thought was in my bed. Ah...fortunately, I had only been DREAMING there was a snake in my bed, but it startled me and kept me captivated in a search for almost a minute! LOL I eventually woke up enough to realize I was in my bed, snake-free, and my mind was just playing tricks on me (but I WILL shake out the sheets before I crawl in tonight just in case!).
After a somewhat fitful night of rest, I awoke this morning, checked my temperature (which was normal...one of the few "normal" things about me these days), crawled out of bed, fed the Princess of Darkness, made myself a BLT, dinked around on the computer for a bit, showered and dressed for work, and spent the next 9 1/2 hours seeing patients AT work...as the title of this post says, sometimes there just isn't a lot to tell!
My vision remains slightly blurred in my left periphery...a most unusual phenomenon to say the least. But not enough to impair me significantly OR keep me home from work another day. I have felt very fatigued the past several days, which also lends credence to my belief "whatever" has been going haywire in my system has been viral. My ear also continues to have "spells" of pain and congestion in it.
I am anxiously counting down the final days before my next Novantrone dose on Friday, which will also kick off the start of my summer "vacation". Of course the obvious first 5-7 days will be spent recovering from the blue juice, but then I hope to have a returned flight into wellness and feel just as feisty as I had been feeling most of May and June. I won't be returning to work until the end of July, so let the party begin!
Sometime during those days, I'll also pass my 43rd birthday (yes, the actual day IS a secret!)...so please begin now to consider exactly what you and Donald Trump have in mind for a gift for me. I'm never too proud to accept real estate...LOL...
