An Overwhelming Calm

I’m in the midst of a relative calm, but the waters are choppy and everything could turn upside down in a second.

I got my new port, it’s a double port (which no one has seen here in Canada), but it’s working so I’m happy.

I’m back on my IV antibiotics, which now have to be shipped to NY for me. I don’t even think they have the antibiotic I’m on here in Canada, Invanz. It’s definitely helping.

So many things can go wrong it boggles my mind…

I can only get these antibiotics for three months, because I have to see my doctor in northern California again in order to continue the prescription…

I have to get across the border with the damn medicine, a friend of mine is supposed to be taking me there and back tomorrow (I have to pay him $100, of course, but I still consider him a friend and many people wouldn’t do something like this).

My stomach problems have been brewing…C diff is a well recognized side effect, and it seems like I have to be super careful on certain antibiotics. I don’t know if it’s my liver or what, but my bowel movements have not been normal and right now I’m taking the ‘if I bury my head in the sand maybe the problem will just go away’.

And sometimes, that approach does work. The Burying-your-head-in-the -sand approach to medicine works more often than people realized.

The human body is designed to work things out on its own. That’s what it does…fix itself.

Even me with my immune deficiency can work things out, though usually I need a little more help than others..

The calm before the storm? Maybe that’s what this is…the calm before the storm..

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
