Eye dr

Went to the eye doctor today, got my eyes dilated now I look like I have x-ray eyes. But I had a great report. No issues and Diane had no issues.

Two stick

Well it's  been a week with my new power port and went in to get blood drawn and they couldn't use it due to being lab techs and not nurses. Two sticks and one blown vein.

8 mile hick

Hiked 8 miles with Diane at Tunnel Hill trail. We had a lot of fun looking at nature. Sore a little but it felt good. The hiking sticks worked good and we took a day pack with us. It was a great start on our quest for the Appalachian trail.

Well infusion day again. They used ultrasound to find my veins today, then they dug deep. Really thought it was going through my elbow. Nothing like seeing blood through a needle running down your arm.

Day of Test

Haven't blogged in a bit sorry, too many things going on .
Yesterday 4\5\16 was a day of tests.
Had to be at the hospital by 6:00am to start. They started with a chest X-ray and then a blood test. They only stuck me one time thank goodness. Just got sat down from that and they called me for my MRI check up. Well it took ten sticks to get the contrast in. I felt like a pin cushion. It took 3 hours for that test and my back and right shoulder were killing me. Walked out after that into the lobby and it was light out.  When I went in it was dark still. Everyone was looking at me because of all the gauss pads taped to me. The last test was a EKG guess it had nod no issues.
All of this because of my MS and me wanting a port so I don't get stuck so much. Best part I got to sleep the rest of the day.
