What a day or should I say this past week.
I swept, mopped, ran the sweeper, cleaned the bathroom, and did three loads of laundry. Then I even took the KIA to sweep it out, clean the windows, and wash it. This is after spending a few days over the last week moving things from storage (eBay stuff) in Ashland to Mount Vernon storage to make selling so much easier. That was an ordeal. This girl is tired.
Anytime I would bump my arms or legs it would leave a bruise or blood would run down my arm. My arms are covered in dark red bruises from the constant bumping and moving things around. They don’t hurt, they just look really bad.
I stopped at KFC for dinner because I wasn’t going to cook and pizza wasn’t what I wanted. Let’s just say when I walked across the parking lot my granddaughter Braelynn could’ve beat me in a foot race.
I even managed a shower so I can spend the rest of my evening relaxing in my recliner. I love being busy but my legs just can’t keep up. My legs felt like jello from the hips down due to the long use of steroids. Somedays walking is such a chore and I feel so uneasy on my feet. It gets really bad after working on projects or doing normal household chores.
Medically, my numbers have dropped a bit but that’s to be expected because of the Jackafi. I have to return Thursday to check platelets because they’re pretty low at the moment which explains all of the bruises and bleeding.
Dr decided Friday to start my vaccines which is a good thing. But she only gave me the covid vaccine which makes me mad. There are other vaccines I desperately need more of.
Why only push the one. If it wasn’t for being compliant in the event I would need another transplant and not wanting to hold it over my head I wouldn’t have said ok. If I also knew I was only going to get the covid vaccine I would’ve told her I would wait. Ugh, I was really hoping for the shingles vaccine. I’m more scared of shingles and chickenpox than covid. I’ve had covid and it wasn’t a big deal I’ve dealt with a lot worse.
I return Thursday for blood work only other than that I’m good for the week. I don’t return to the clinic for another 3 weeks. I’m so excited to finally have a little break from dr appts, bloodwork, and hospital visits.
