Hopefully now, things can slip back into some semblance of normality. I am sitting here yawning, but cannot tell you whether it’s from a lack of sleep or too much sleep. The Aredia is done, for the next six months, so now we can get back to a more decent waking hour in a morning, instead of just before 5am.
I have probably mentioned this in a previous blog entry, but Aredia is meant to help me with my brittle bones. Everyone has a continual process happening within their bones whereby they are broken down and rebuilt again. For me, the breaking down process happens faster than the building up process. The Aredia helps slow down that breaking down process so that the building has a chance to catch up, thus making my bones stronger.
Today, I only have two needle marks to prove that I went in for an IV treatment. The first needle lasted two days, but today, something did not feel right, so I asked for them to set up a new IV. Maybe it was all fine, since I did not feel that sore, but my hand went clammy and when that happens, I know something is wrong.
Rather be safe than sorry, if you know what I mean…
It took a while for them to set up the new IV, since they had an emergency with another patient, but once the needle was in, I was fast asleep, as usual. I’m not sure what it is, but every session ends up with me sleeping like a baby for most of it. It’s almost as if I needed it on some level.
