Had to share this photo. My girlfriend and I got to giggling with the matching outfit I had to wear for the procedures....love the shoes!
I had the best medical care yesterday. Everyone was so nice and sweet to me. They put me to sleep so I didn't feel a thing. I then had to recover in a room for about an hour and half. While recovering the doctor(Hematologist) who did the bone marrow biopsy came in and sat for a long time and asked many questions. He felt for sure that I don't have a malignancy and had some other thoughts and might want me to get more blood work done. He was very sweet and kept saying that I was "too young and should not be so sick" that was so nice. And then my girlfriend and I were shocked when he stood up to leave and came to my bed and hugged me and kissed me on the check to say good bye. You don't get that in the states...not that kind of bedside manner. And the anesthesiologist was just too darn cute. He kept saying that he was going to "take care of me" and I would feel nothing. He said "lots of tequila for you!".
I am so glad that is over with and we can just get the results.
Now I have to figure out what to do with this pain in my butt/leg. I went on line as recommended by a sparks buddy and looked up Piriformis syndrome and it sounds exactly like what is going on. Bummer. Shoot. I just don't need this now on top of everything else. I want to be able to walk the dogs but more importantly walk all around Disney World with the grandkids. I am hoping that this is a temporary flair up. Darn it! I will research and see what all I can do about it.
One other little bummer is that the autoimmune drug I was on that was working so well wasn't available to refill. They are having trouble getting it. So the doctor recommended something else which shocked me to find out how much it cost. It's like $400 dollars for 50 pills and I have to take 2 per day so a 25 day supply. Yikes! These drugs are drugs you take if you have had an organ transplant. Oh well it is what it is.
I do hope you all have a terrific day.
