Lizze had her final headache infusion session, yesterday afternoon. She basically underwent 12 hours of pretty hardcore narcotics being pumped into her via IV.
This was split up over two days and the sole purpose was to break her five weeks old migraine.
She can only have this done one time a year, at least as far as I know. It was almost exactly a year ago that she had this done to break a migraine that she had that lasted for months.
The good news is that it appears to have worked. I say appears to have worked because she still pretty heavily medicated. We should have a better idea of where we stand as time goes on.
The downside to this is that it only treats the current migraine and doesn’t prevent it from coming back
As someone that doesn’t suffer from these debilitating migraines, I can’t imagine what it’s like. When I asked her if it was worth it, she replied, any amount of time without having to feel the pain of a migraine is worth it.
Here’s to hoping that Lizze can get a well deserved break from the constant migraines.
I want thank Lizze’s parents for watching the two oldest last night and my parents for getting her to the appointments.
I also want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers. I truly appreciate it….. 🙂
