Lizze has completed her 2nd successful day of infusions. One of the meds they gave her causes her whole body pain. It’s a side effect of that medication but it’s very short lived and the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks.
Lizze was able to walk out to the van but she’s very heavily medicated and otherwise really out of it.
She came home and was able to stay awake just long enough for me to make a few very important phone calls. As soon as I was done, she was in bed and asleep.
I wasn’t able to get any detailed information out of her about how she was feeling, largely due to being so heavily medicated. The other part is because this process is physically exhausting.
I was able to ask her if she was glad she went through with this. She said that she was glad she that she decided to go through with this because it’s helping. Tomorrow is her last day of this procedure and we are kicking around the idea of exploring a 4th day, if 3 days don’t kill this migraine cycle.
I don’t know if that’s even possible or for that matter, safe. I can’t imagine this is good for ones body.
When she wakes up, I will try and find out where she is on the pain scale. Monday’s infusion took her from a 12 to a 10. I’m really, really hoping that today’s infusion brings her down once again. Perhaps, she’s gone from a 10 to a 7 or 8. That would be good progress.
