My second day of IV steroids is officially done. I have been suffering with a ton of pain and fatigue and was due for my 6-8 week steroid infusion.
I am taking IV steroids every 6-8 weeks now in order to prevent a relapse from happening, while I wait for the stem cell treatment to start. It just so happened that I was not doing well, so the steroids came in handy at this particular time.
I’m feeling better already. Way less pain and no bad fatigue. Yay!!
I am going up the garage steps and my left leg decides not play along. I catch myself and say “ow, my toe. At least I didn’t totally fall!”
So I try waking on it and it’s not having it. I look down and suddenly I see my foot in a pool of blood. So I assess the situation while trying to cut down on my blood clean up. (Yes, you parents undertande that one LOL)
So what do I do? I get to a bathroom hobbling and wondering how to yell for help… at 1am!
Well I find my wound kit. (Again parents?) I pull out my saline wash, steri strips, and I’m gonna make it work. I hope I won’t need stitches. It’s not pretty but it’ll do for the night.
