chicago post -- part 3
i think this is the last one.
here i am having a DHE infusion:
good times. and here's an even worse picture of the same thing.
i'm obviously expounding on some point of immense importance.
this is my room -- it was *tiny*
i did have one of those beds where you could make either end life up or whatever, that was kind of nice. unfortunately, it felt like a piece of hard styrofoam covered in plastic. not my favorite.
and there's my little window -- they had 3 different lights in the room, which was nice, one big overhead one (never on), a set of recessed lights (on during the times i was feeling best), and that reading lamp you can see in the photo above (on for the nurse to put in or change my IV). a very good plan for a headache wing.
and lastly, here is the best view from the hospital:
i was at Saint Joseph's hospital, and it overlooks lake michigan. very pretty. the hospital has its own floor just for headache patients, and while i was there we had classes and although i didn't learn a lot of new information, i did learn some new information. and i was reminded of a lot of things i knew. it's important to reprocess them and maybe bring them back to the forefront of my mind now and again.
i've still been up and down with headache pain since i got home; yesterday and today haven't been good, probably because of the storms coming through. i'm hoping that's the reason, and that it's not a real setback. hoping that once the storms move through i'll go back to having some good hours again.

I just caught up on your recent posts, and I say blame the storms for the little set back! It could be a two steps forward, one back thing. I have always reminded myself I'm in for the long term not the short term. It seems to make adjusting to new trials and routines easier. Suddenly you have a good day and don't even realize it. I'll keep praying for you!! Hang in there!

I'm in Michigan and the storms are hitting me over the head, too.

I am glad you got a pic of the lake. I enjoyed seeing that while I was there, too! I think these weather changes are the prob.
