I don’t really have an update. I’m still feeling pretty crappy. I managed 1 smoothie yesterday and a glass of juice.
I have a doctor’s appointment on Thursday so I’ll make sure he knows I still feel crappy. I also have an ultrasound that day and tests to screen for Down’s syndrome. Which means more poking and blood giving.
Today my home health nurse is coming out to change the dressing on my PICC line. Hopefully she isn’t grossed out by my stringy hair.
Taking a shower is difficult and not relaxing at all now that I have this PICC line in. I have to hold my right arm up the whole time so it doesn’t get wet and Stephen has to help shampoo my hair which means the door to the shower is open the whole time and I’m freezing. I miss taking long hot showers to at least just wash away some of the stress.
Next week Stephen has to go to this conference out of town so my mom is staying with me because I’m obviously incapable of taking care of myself. I really hate being so dependent on other people. I like to do things my way and in my own time.
