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.

    Yikes, your toenail came off. That must have hurt. I wish you all the best if you go through the surgery. I may also go through surgery. I wil know July 10th. I have a second umbilical hernia and it is hurting. My first hernia was discovered 18 yrs ago and ready to rupture. Because of my weight loss this time, I discovered it early. emoticon

    Goodness, that really is a lot to deal with in one sitting. Know that we are thinking of you and hope your surgery (if you have it) goes well and that you heal up in no time and find yourself back out on walks with Leone again.
