Mike did very well this morning giving me my daily Lovinox shot (to stop the blood clotting). Mom trained him yesterday morning, but I was getting a little light-headed while they discussed how to do it. I was a little nervous this morning, but after being stuck daily for the past nine days I handled it a bit better than I would have last week. Mike was better than some of the nurses at the hospital because this stuff can have a little burning effect if you push the medicine too fast or too slow. He did it just right.
Next week he gets to jab me with a different medicine that will help control the nausea. Oh joy, just what I need, more shots.
I'm very squeamish about needles, but I'm getting somewhat better at dealing with it. I did almost pass out a couple of times at the hospital last week after the lab technician drew blood so that part is still difficult. I hope to get over my squeamishness soon!
