Good evening to all of you.
I am posting to let you know that our friend Cris has a nasty week ahead of her this week coming tomorrow starting morning.
I should really post on chit chat, but I am sure you will all forgive me (this not being totally arthritis related), as this is where she normally 'hangs out' these days.
Those of you who have known Cris a while will know taht every 4 months or so (longer if she can get away with it!) Cris has to have a yukky infusion every day for a week as a day patient.
You may notice tomorrow morning a dragging and scraping sound? Listen carefully and you will hear it.....it is the sound of the chains dragging along the floor as she prepares to leave for the hospital
Unfortunately first of all she has to have a line inserted and this is not easy as our Cris is a delicate soul and her veins can be somewhat elusive.....this makes a certainnasty
takes this as an insult to her nursing ability :roll:
Finally once wired up Cris can settle down to watch tv
and sleep until the nasty substance starts to make her feel really poorly :sad:
Each day it makes her feel worse and each day it gets harder to go in. All animals still have to be fed and watered as per usual.
I wish we were able to be there 'in real life' to help her, but we do 'our bit' here trying to cheer her along and support her and it really DOES help. My voodoo doll is pretty well finished I just need some hair from the nurse (and pixyandfairies' drawing pins)and Chris7 and Minky have their lump hammers ready
Iris and Wonky and myself will be on hand doing our personal assistant duties letting you all know how she is.
The conseqence of not having this treatment is too serious to be an option.
So.....can we all do our best to support Cris in her hour (five days) of need
No need to ask really it's what we do best.
GOOD LUCK CRIS
