I'll be leaving for a week of intensive IV therapy in just a couple hours. The neurologist thinks that replacing all my current meds with brand new stuff will make all the difference. He's also warned me that it will be very painful for at least the first couple treatments. Just what I needed to hear. Even more pain. :( The treatments start at 8 a.m. tomorrow morning and go five hours a day. The thought of getting jabbed every day is making me very nervous. I'm not good with needles at all. My veins are very small and will roll and hide from IVs. I've had more than a few veins collapse because of that.
The doctor said he's treated other chronic migraine patients like me and this does help. I promised to try anything that might give a little relief, so ...
Of course, it's snowing for the drive. Can't have nice weather. It's not coming down as hard as it did our last trip there.
We have a room right across the street from the clinic. It's an efficiency apartment, so there's a stove, microwave and refrigerator for us to use. Much better than eating out every night. How many fast food burgers can anyone eat before they puke? They also have a van that will take us to and from the treatments as well as local restaurants (Hard Rock Cafe, here we come!). That will be so much more convenient that driving and trying to find parking. We can just leave the car at the hotel the entire time we're there.
Not sure about internet access. This laptop is about dead. I've asked Santa for a new one, so we'll see how that goes. It doesn't even have to be fancy. As long as I can get on line and do my articles and photos, I'll be happy.
Hope everyone has a great week!
