So blessed that my mom, husband and best friend A were there to support me and encourage me :)
So, right after it was done the three of them walked up to me and gave me a funny face. Cause between the procedure being done and them taking 7 steps over to the bed I had formed a hive under my left eye. Just one! Didn't itch or anything. Just a random white bump on my face haha! The nurse wasn't concerned because it wasn't near my PICC line, and started getting smaller as fast as it popped up. Probably resulted from all stress I had built up. The nurse said, "You're body is kinda weird, but you're cute."
God hand picked that nurse for me. She knew the severity of Lyme Disease. She didn't have it, but watched someone very close to her suffer and die from it. So very hard and sad to hear her story.
The nurse came today to teach me how to give myself the treatment and such. I was not looking forward to this, but so ready to start feeling better. I took quite a few taurine before hand. It wasn't bad at all. Actually, totally easy. She comes again tomorrow to make sure I understand everything and am able to do it in my own the rest of the week. One day down!
I'm still in shock it had to come to this and take this long to get proper treatment. I'm so thankful for God's peace. "And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Phil 4:7) It's God's peace that's getting me through.
Energy Expelled: My arm with the line is SO sore now. Even more so than before. My hands hurt. Headache. My neck and back really hurt. Legs are so uncomfortable and achy. Okay IV, you need to work! Ready to walk out in remission.
