Since I've been on disability since 2006, I have really cut back on spending - I used to order L'arc related items with casual abandon.
But it's all snowdark's fault that I ordered L'Arc-en-Ciel / Live in Paris - she pointed out this clip - My Dear is one my favorite L'arc songs
& it rates really high on my weak in the knees "Oh my God, that voice!" hydometer
I mentioned yesterday that I woke up with a fever of 103 - and I was tempted to succumb to a lie of omission when my IV infusion nurse called to ask how I was feeling.. Well of course I was instructed to go to the er since my visiting nurse wasn't available to do a blood draw & culture..
I had a chest xray, a pee in the cup test & a nose swab .. all of which came out fine. I mentioned having a bad headache all day (and I never take tylenol or aspirin because I don't want to mask a fever- it's the way my body tells me somethings not right)... well after taking 3 tylenol I mentioned I still had a headache. The doctor said, well you could have meningitis so we could do a catscan of your head & do a spinal tap...... gahhhhhhh I refused and was able to go home. The doctor was just being cautious -
I've been to the hospital 3 times this week.. I'm starting to get hospital burnout. I was back at the hospital cancer center today to get an infusion of iron (I don't have cancer - it's just the area where you can get infusions of whatever) - I want to stay optomistic..but some days I feel like I get my hopes up then something else smacks me down again.. ah well I'm still blessed...just a bit tired and cranky.
