like I'm still recovering

Proof of my blown veins.  The one past my elbow goes up even another inch after the picture cuts off (it's hard to take a picture of your arm by yourself) :)

It's been what, 4 days?  Now my arm is really bruising up.  They've been really bruised to the touch ever since but today was the first day you can SEE the evidence. ugh.

But I haven't had that kidney pain anymore! My doctor's P.A  called on Monday to make sure I was okay.  How cool is that?  Someone who remembers your call 2 days before and didn't even have your chart when she talked to you.  Love that.  She didn't really have an explanation except it might have been a herx?  Maybe nerve pain?  I don't think it was nerve pain.  It definitely felt like kidney pain.

Anyway -- today I'm running slowly.  The last few days have been filled with me being creative to get some stuff ready for a baby shower.  For some reason being creative zaps me!  But it's something I love to do.  I have just a few more things to finish (creative-wise) and then I'll spend the whole day before and of the baby shower just resting so I can enjoy the shower for my friend.

Nothing major to complain about except my lack of energy.  Thankful to not be in pain.

Praying for other Lymies today who are suffering!


  1. wow, crazy! glad the pain is gone and that you're able to enjoy some creativity. :)

  2. Glad you are on the mend! The things we Lymies go through! I'm glad you are documenting this, too.
