Photos of my journey …………..
This is my Plasma Exchange Machine. I call him Henry. He is a huge part of my treatment right now as I will receive Maintenance PLEX every two weeks.
The reason I keep fighting. My beautiful Niece Aurora.
Gotta have a good outlook on life. Even if it is from the hospital bed. This is me getting ready to go in for surgery to have my temporary catheter put into place.
Looks scarier than it really is. My temp catheter.
Ready to get the show on the road!
It all started with this …. a trip to the ophthalmologist. DX for the day: Optic Neuritis in the left eye leaving me completely blind on that side. Not to mention that my eyes hurt …. a lot.
Admitted to the hospital for yet MORE steroids …. another colitis flare – this one bad enough to require hospitalization.
My hotel visit (aka hospital visit) 11/04/2014 and my first IV … wonder how many I will have this time that I will blow? All I know is that it was HARD to get this line!
IV line for IV Solumedrol. OUCH did it hurt for a while. Still sore.
Iv number two…. didn’t last very long.
Got all flushed and new caps on my lines … after by BLOOD BATH
OUCH my arm is still sore after blowing my IV line
IV Three was a keeper. It stayed in and got me through the rest of my treatments.
My favorite girl came to visit me. I was so so so so happy to have her beating on me. She makes things better every time I get sick.
