She’s got my back

A migraine triggered a Crohn’s flare for me today, leaving me mostly miserable. That is, until sweet Paisley climbed into my bed and nestled herself firmly against my back. It was just the comfort I needed. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s big heart! Day 342 of 365. And Day 1,073 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1…

Narrow approval

A slight fever nearly prevented me from receiving my 12th IV infusion for Crohn’s Disease today. The treatment works by suppressing my immune system, which can make it dangerous to receive if my body is already fighting an infection. I haven’t been feeling great lately, but I finished my latest antibiotics course two weeks ago,…

Wait-free flu shots

After a morning at the dentist’s office, Mama and I stopped at a flu shot clinic on our way home. We got lucky and there was no line, and they gave us these swell stickers at the end! Today’s #OneGoodThing was wait-free flu shots with Mama! Day 316 of 365. And Day 1,047 in a row (here’s the first…

Afternoon walk in our neighborhood

Today’s #OneGoodThing was taking a lovely, afternoon walk in our neighborhood with Mama and Paisley. It felt good to go for a walk again, after all the walking of our trip. All three of us were happy to stretch our legs after jet lag and bad colds took their toll. As a bonus #OneGoodThing, here’s a beautiful…

A lovely way to vote

Elections are two weeks from today, but we took our mail-in ballots to the county office today. Mama and I live in a mail-in voting only area, but we like to collect our “I Voted” stickers and we wanted our ballots to be counted early. There was no line, the staff was friendly, and we…

No more rationing nausea meds

A prescription I need to help ease my constant nausea was finally available today. I’ve been struggling to get it filled correctly since we got home from our trip. I had been feeling desperate after rationing out the last of these critical pills to cover the week-long delay/error. Today’s #OneGoodThing was relief at finally getting my prescription…

Smooth infusion day

It was about as smooth of a day as I could have hoped, given that I was receiving my 11th chemo infusion treatment for Crohn’s Disease. Thanks to a combo of jet lag and nerves, I woke up early enough to take a seated shower without rushing, and then get back in bed to recover…
