Hi, my faithful readers!
If you’ve noticed that I haven’t responded to comments or commented on your blogs, there’s a good reason for this. I’ve been having some medical issues: not mental health related, thank God, but issues with fatigue and dizziness. It’s made it very difficult to even deal with email. I was having dizzy spells on Sunday and Monday. I suspected that my sodium levels might be too low; this has been an issue in the past. This morning, my blood test results came in. My sodium is higher than it’s been (that’s good) but my iron levels were lower (that’s bad).
I’ve mentioned before that I’ve had to have iron IV-infusions administered in the past. After playing telephone tag with two doctors’ offices, I finally got an appointment this Friday for another infusion. So, it’s back to the chemo room for a round of Benadryl (to lessen the chance of shock) and iron. It usually takes a day or so for the effect of the Benadryl to wear off.
I have a blog post scheduled for Friday, but I doubt I’ll be reading your comments until Saturday or Sunday. I will read them and I will respond, I promise! I also hope to be back on my regular blogging schedule next week, and I hope I’ll have a chance to read and comment on your blogs as well.
Until then, take care!
