I had a doctor’s appointment with my LLMD in Seattle yesterday. Because it is close to the Washington Park Arboretum, we decided to take Maggie there before the appointment. She’s been there a couple of times before, but it’s nice to go at different times of year to see how the plants look in different seasons. We had a lot of fun walking around and stayed on the main trail for the sake of time. We walked for about an hour. It was fun, I really like that arboretum. Here’s a picture of Maggie and me there:
But, it turned out that it was a bad idea for me to be out in the cold before my appointment. My doctor wanted to get a blood draw to check for a bunch of stuff, but was unable to get any blood because I was so cold. So we’re going to be re-checking bloodwork at my next appointment, where I plan on drinking a lot of water and making sure I’m warm ahead of time
In terms of my Lyme treatment, I’m going to start to treat for Babesia in the next couple of days. I don’t remember the name of the medication I’m starting, but it sounds like there is a possibility I will herx a lot. That’s too bad, I don’t like going through that. But I need to do it to get better.
We also stopped by a sandwich place in the U district for lunch, called Homegrown. the sandwich there was really good but it was in a busy mall during Christmas season with no parking. So David had to drop me off to pick up the food and circle around to pick me up. It was stressful but worth it. I wish I could have had time to do some shopping while we were there but we couldn’t find any parking.
I’ve actually been up since 6:30 this morning. I had a hard time sleeping last night. So I woke up and worked on some revisions for my book. I’m about 3/4 of the way through my revisions this week, which is good. I’m glad that I’m able to do some writing this week.
In terms of this blog, I’m almost up to 250 followers! When I get there I’m going to treat myself in some way, probably with a cookie or something. Welcome to all the new readers!
That’s about all for today. Have a great day!
