Aunt Flo has made her arrival!

Aunt Flo has made her arrival!!!! I have an appointment on Monday to get my baseline blood work done. Also at this appointment I have to bring all my meds to have them organized. I for sure don't want to take the wrong shot on the wrong day. I am still a little worried about all the shots I have to take. I have grown up having my blood taken a lot so needles don't bother me, but I have never had to stick myself with a needle. I am sure after the first few it will get easier, or I might be calling Jennifer Douga to come and give me my shots (Jennifer if you are reading this, be ready for my call). My mom and Marcus both went to injection training with me, so they both should be able to help me out. During the class we were able to practice and my mom seemed a little nervous about it and the nurse kept telling her that she was doing it to slow and that would hurt me. Marcus on the other hand bent the needle (maybe a little too hard) and he was never good growing up with needles and blood?????? I know y'all are wondering about my calendar and is it still going to work????? I have counted out the days and from what I come up with I think it is not going to change, but I will find out on Monday.

Marcus and I are truly thankful and I don't even know where to begin with all the blessings we have experienced along this journey. The meds alone for this treatment usually cost a fortune, but we have been blessed and they are only going to cost us a third of the price. My doctor is also giving us (yes I said givng us, as in free!!) one of the most expensive drugs, because our insurance isn't covering any of our drugs or treatment. The treatment cost, where do I begin????? That alone is a huge blessing, it will not be as hard on us as we initially thought. I am just so thankful for the many blessing along this crazy journey!!!!
