Believe it or not, this is a GOOD NEWS story!  As well as being the #NewStatusQuo

2 big A$$ bottles are to replace the inject-able stuff that was allowing my face to blow up. (pic won't load!?!?!) Small bottle is my regular Acid Reflux med.

MEDIUM bottle is the MOST EXCITING contains oral antibiotics, which means.....  

        !!!!!!!!!!!   MY IV IS OUT  !!!!!!!!!!!!!


I have to be diligently on the lookout for any swelling or worsening redness, and if that happens, I’m back to the Poke & Pump Method.   (Tee Hee)

   As fun as that sounds, it ain't.  So let's hope this is it.

I am, once again, grateful and buoyed by the wonderful care I've received from my health team, and my ‘home team’ (family, friends and colleagues).   It really does make all of this shiz bearable.

After 10 days being tethered to, and sleeping with a beepy pump in a fanny pack, I'm so happy I could twirl!  Well, I would if I wasn't so damn tired!  I suppose fighting a bad infection does tire a girl out.

Hoping for a deep and non puffy sleep tonight.

Sweet dreams y'all
