Well good late afternoon folks, I had completed my “How I Feel Today (for today) much earlier in the day. But then I tried to transfer it to WordPress and ran into some technical issues. And being the technical genius I am. I didn’t save it when I closed the document. So now you are going to be subjected to a rehashed version. For the week ending today I am going to rate it a solid 3.0, with the possibility of sneaking to 3.25. I did not repeat did not see a single doctor this week. Being quite honest I can’t remember the last time I didn’t see a doctor during a given week (with the exception of the Cruise). Really that alone should make the week a 4 LOL LOL.
This coming week I am scheduled to see Doc Head, and have my monthly IVIG. One of my friends in the DS group asked me about my IVIG sessions why I needed them and what it was. I had a perfectly long winded explanation in this report that answered the mail. But I am having some difficulty being that long winded again. For those that don’t know the IVIG treatment I get each month is to enhance my immune system. Over the years my immune system has become lazy, and I don’t create enough immunoglobulin to fight off pneumonia, MRSA, or whatever else may be attacking my lungs and body at any given time. The monthly infusion is a 5 to 6 hour process 1 time a month. Currently the drug of choice for this treatment is Gammagard, and that isn’t a flippant remark, there are more than one drug that can be used to enhance the body’s ability to create these necessary antibodies, and to my knowledge they have used 2 different ones on me so far.
The result of these monthly treatments has been marked. And while I still get sick, these drugs help me, help my body fight off what could be quite catastrophic for me. So you can expect me to continue this treatment as long as it is an option.
Going back for a second, seeing Doc Head is important to me, apparently I have multiple issues taking up space in my head, and they all need to escape. I have said it before, but I truly wonder where she goes to dump all the crap that folks like myself dump on her. I hope that person is as good as she is. I have the last appointment of the day tomorrow, so I get to have dinner with the kids after the appointment. I am looking forward to that.
Folks, I could drone on and on, and you know I could, but there is no reason to do so. Please take care, and we will talk again next week. As always if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to ask. Take care, Bill
