Today is processing day. Process all the information I got from the Lyme specialist now that I’m home. Process the trip, and what’s happening in my head (again, got off the train, and I’m still in-motion a bit more than my usual dizziness). Process the Visa expenses we paid, and will yet be paying. Process laundry, groceries, and the snow-day my kids have from school (was hoping to have this day to be alone to deal with all my stuff, but oh well). And the fee I owe my body: sleep, rest, quiet, and being home.
Some highlights from the trip:
The appointment went well, and I am happy that I am beginning a new plan that includes half a dozen antibiotics, and a dozen supplements. Actually the supplements come first, to repair my system a bit before starting antibiotics, one at a time (one I am already on).
We did not crash in the crazy traffic or the snow-ice mess that was all over the DC area.
The kids got to see the National Aquarium (and I got a nap)!
I got something memorable, and applicable: a Tick Key. Thanks to the Nature Center in Columbia, MD. Useful for pulling ticks off & out without squeezing them. I’m sure I will have to use it.
We made it home through the snowstorm that hit Michigan during the night we were on the train back. Only took an extra 3 hours between the train running late and the extra drive time it took. Better late than slipping off-road like others we saw.
OK, so…time to go sort out what time and what day I take what pills, collect some more saliva samples for the test I have to send back to MD, make the grocery list, see if we can get the driveway plowed, and go get a new PICC-line put in, and I forget what else. Still processing.
