Solu-Medrol – Day Three

Finally, the last day of the IV Solu-Medrol!!!  It’s out of my arm!  YEAH!!!!

Last night I was very not happy that the nurse couldn’t come until 3:30 to do the infusion.  That was just too late.  I hate asking friends for favors (heck, I’ve even had a hard time asking hubby to do things for me), but I decided it was time to ask for help.  The mom of Big Sister’s good friend is a nurse.  I dropped “K” a note last night asking if she’d be comfortable doing my infusion today.  Awesome person that she is, she said no problem and came over late morning.

The infusion took over an hour and a half today.  It was just slow going for half the bag.  Things finally picked up for the second half.  It was nice to sit and talk with a friend rather than make small talk with a vising nurse.  Things worked out well and I’m so thrilled to have the IV out you have no idea!

After the infusion, my senses were heightened again.  Light was too bright, sounds too loud.  I had some lunch and tried to work, but didn’t get much done and decided it would be better to take off and have  a nap.  I’m glad I took time to rest.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a much better day!  I’m excited about moving onto the Prednisone pills, even if it is for 12 days.  I can do this part!  The worst of it is over with.

Thanks everyone for your encouragement and a huge thanks to K!

  1. Glad it’s over! Time to celebrate. I may join you for the prednisone. The poison ivy I pulled out last week is showing itself on my arms. We can be in great moods with the munchies together!!
