A few weeks ago, I had a tough time having blood drawn for some routine blood tests, so I was not looking forward to that this morning at the infusion center. The nurse warmed up my arm, used a small needle, and found a good vein right away. Unfortunatly, the easiest veins to acces are on my left arm, which we are not allowed to use because I had lymph nodes removed.
Anyways….I’m here for my bone strengthening infusion again. No big deal. 🙂
The blood tests I had a few weeks ago showed that my cholesterol levels are great, but my vitamin D was very low. Having a vitamin D deficiecy apparantly can cause bone pain. Hmmmmmm. Interesting. Now I am wondering if I was haivng bone pain from the hormone blocking pill or from that. So I’m on a huge dose of vitamin D for a bit and started up the hormone blocking pill again. What a journey this is!!
On the 27th, I am heading in for surgery again. I have some very large uncomfortable scars from the previous surgery on my healthy breast, so the plastic surgeon is going to remove those and then I will have radiation for 3 days on those scars to hopefully prevent them from coming back so large and painful.
Never a dull moment…really…
Oh…and we are now officially parents of a teenager. Our oldest turned 13 on the 8th.
