Greetings from Oregon.
I know it's been a while since I've written a blog and thought i'd let you know what's been going on with me.
I have IVIG treeatments in the hospital which helps the symptoms I have from Myasthenia Grais. 2 weeks ago when i had the treatment 3 days in a row They can't find my veins. I got poked 4 times and that fourth try she got a good vein. I have to wear the IV home.
I'm in the process of having or trying to get a Power Port implanted in my chest. this will involve an incision in chest and one in neck. I met the Vascular/Thoractic surgeon yesterday and because of past problems with Anesthesia he doesn't want me out for the surgery. this scares me. Tomorrow morning i go to the hospital for blood work and EKG and Friday I see the Anesthe ologist at 1. We'll discuss if this is for me or wht? If all goes well it looks like my surgery willb e the next week.
A month ago while at the Dog park with Leone which is indoors I was playing with all the dogs and see a dodgeball like ball and went to kick i for the dogs to chase and it turns out it was brightly painted red cement ball jsut for decoration. OWWWWWWW! 3 of my toes were numb and one will not bend. I was scheduled for seeing the podiatrist next Wednesday but this morning as i was slipping on my jeans m bi toenail came all the way off. Whewwwww!!!!!
On top of all this I ahve progressed to insulin dependent Diabetes and finally got my numbers down to 124 and this was a big thrill for me. I can't exercise s much as I'd like to.
