Well, here I am again with my IV in & iron a drippin’. Yes, I’m Texan and we punctuate our words just like that, drippin’, sippin’, lovin’, kickin’, sleepin’. Good gracious does a saline flush taste nasty! They wouldn’t have to flush the line if I could sit still but they don’t know that a mother of two boys rarely sits still. Especially with an almost two year old that loves to act like Bam Bam with a bat & throw balls over the neighbors fence & a six year old who loves to swim in his pool and race.
I have been able to tell some difference since my first iron infusion last week. I have gotten some extra cleaning done & I’ve managed to work on decorating the house a little more. We have lived there a year now so I figured it might be time to decorate some. I also painted Jaxson’s baseball drawers. I started that project last year & I think I’m almost finished.
Health changes & one that women tend not to like, I have to shave daily now. When my iron is extremely low, I don’t need to shave but once every few weeks. Just since last week it’s become a daily occurrence. Ugh, the bad with the good! Now if my hair will get thicker & longer I will love iron infusions forever!
I love my ‘Gut it Out’ shirt supporting the CCFA (Chrones & Colitis Foundation). I need a ‘Girls Have Guts’ shirt now! With every trial I face with my oh so unpredictable health, I know that I will gut it out & keep on movin’, keep on lovin’, studying, teaching, coaching, mommying, wifing & all the other things I fit into this crazy life we live.
