There seems to be no end to the days where I feel 3.0, though over the last couple of days I barely got to the 3.0 level. I have been having wave after wave of coughing, some chills, and other symptoms of a cold, but nothing is developing, Thank God. Also, it does seem to calm down at bedtime. My temperature has been steady 98.6 within a tenth or two. BP has been great 100/60 pulse for me a little low today at 84, (normally in low 90s) and oxygen level at 97. So all the numbers are good, it’s just I seem so damn lethargic.
On Tuesday of this week I had my monthly IVIG treatment. I arrived at the infusion center at the appointed time of 830am, but prep didn’t start until almost 10am. A couple of reasons for this were the center cannot start any patient until a doctor is on site, and the Doctor was running real late. That coupled with fact there were a dozen of us that had been schedule for Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of last week had been rescheduled for that Tuesday. All of this made for a backup at the needle landing spot. So what is normally a 5 hour process turned into a 7 ½ hour process. Having said that I really feel lucky, I have my treatment once a month, many of these others have it daily or weekly. Granted they aren’t there for 7 plus hours, but I would rather give up one day a month to this that an hour or so every day.
I am down to my final 5 PT’s sessions and I truly believe they have helped in a significant way. I will admit that I slacked off today, my left shoulder has been sore so I didn’t do any major upper body today, and the lethargic feeling I had mentioned earlier really just impacted the entire workout. Mentally I just wasn’t into it today. Hopefully after a restful weekend I will finish my last 5 sessions strongly.
