I feel like blogging tonight. So guess what ….. here’s a blog.
Lumbar puncture was today. They went lower than they have in the past (this is my third), and I’m having trouble with pressure and pain tonight. I can’t really walk anyway, but it has made it tougher. I’m supposed to lie flat for 24 hours anyway to prevent a spinal headache. I’ll just say “it is what it is” (this is my all-the-time saying), and rest.
Tomorrow is chemo. I’m pretty sure they are trying to kill me this week. I’m just kidding. At least I’m getting most of the crap out of the way this week.
I do have a sleep study on the 14th. That will be weird. I don’t know what to expect there. I guess just … sleeping? While they study me? That won’t be awkward at all.
Have I mentioned lately how blessed I am? I got a new mug and new fuzzy blanket from my bestie this week. I have a slight addiction to both, and she completely feeds/enables those addictions.
I also have people, people I’ve never even outright met, checking on me daily (Shout out to my Poise ladies and my Instagram ladies!! Woot!!). Not to mention all my friends (Good Gosh, I never thought I’d utter the words “all my friends.”) on Facebook who check on me on the regular. I feel the love!!
If I haven’t said this lately, trust yourself! If you think something isn’t right, it isn’t. Be your own advocate. Let people advocate for you if you can’t. Don’t let the problem sit and fester. It will only get worse. Trust your instincts. Get second and third opinions if you have to. Medicine is NOT an exact science … ever. And doctors sometimes don’t know everything … even if they act like they do. I have nothing but love for doctors. They have hard jobs. They are, however, not right 100% of the time.
On a completely different note (Tire screeching, record scratching, change of subject) …

Anyone want to help me? I lost access to my sewing machine (And by “mine,” I mean my mom’s. She lost the pedal.). Also, I’ve never actually made any of them. LOL!! If I have time, I also need a sock-type monkey. I want to make a small one … like little tzum-tzum size.
That’s all for tonight. See ya next time!!
