|My twinnie, Noriko and me!|
Here is what has completely sucked this week:
|(Allergic) reaction....again [this is my left hip...forgot to turn the pic...]|
Anyways, while we were at lunch on Wednesday I decided to stop by the doctor's office since it was practically next door just to see. I was thinking maybe I was overreacting because I don't have a high tolerance to pain. But as I was (and still am) tired of sleeping on my belly, I thought I would just see what they thought. My IVF nurse wasn't there, but the nurse (Pat~super nice) who helped with my FET on Monday was. She took a look and thought I was having some kind of reaction and she would see if my dr. was still there. I got called back in since she said "my butt was causing quite the stir" and not only was my dr. there but another nurse (who I love!). To make a long story short my PIO injections have been switched to sesame seed oil since they think I am having a reaction to the olive oil. They also drew me some new spots on my hips so I wouldn't have to add to the damage at the old sites. I was so very thankful for that. Also I was so very thankful that Pat gave me a brand new box of sesame PIO. She said she felt sorry for me since we have already paid for the others (My dr. was going to have me go pick some up at the pharmacy). I've done two of the new PIO...using the bigger needles (I had a few 1" ones left from last time) and so far so good. The sesame oil is much thicker than the olive oil but if my body decides it likes it better, I'm game.
|hehe...one of my new spots...Pat drew a face. "Speak nor poke no evil!"|
After this, we went to Ta.rget where I did much sitting in the summer table section. I also went out to the car while they shopped some more. Noriko loved the fact we sell flavored coffee...I guess they only sell plain in Japan. So they wandered for a long while. I am having some trouble walking...too sore. It got worse the rest of the night and I am hopeful it goes away soon. I seem to be okay in the morning and feel crippled by late evening/night. Heating pads are my best friends right now. The redness seems to not be as puffy and I am hopeful the oil starts soaking in or whatnot..I know it takes awhile. So today I have done lots of resting and watched One Fine Day. Love that movie!
I have another acupuncture appointment Saturday. I think Moxa might be a new favorite thing. =0)
