I had my second Covid shot last Thursday! It was the pfizer one. The guy who did the shot... was not a nurse. He moved the needle while it was in my arm, and I have a quarter sized bruise there. Sore arm the first day. The second day, I spiked a fever of ~100, … Continue reading 2nd Covid Shot Done!
We (and by 'we' I mean my parents) have a new malamute named Mary. She came from a puppy mill breeder as breeding dog and has already had tumors on her mammary glands. So those were removed, she lost her girly bits so no more puppies, and she moved in with us. She's scared of … Continue reading Our DOG Has a Herniated Disc
I've been looking at ways to get more active, and I found The Fitness Marshall channel through some recommendations from The Simple Dollar. (I follow the newsletter posts from the original owner of this site, not the junk that they advertise on the website.) The Fitness Marshall channel is dance exercise, and it's a lot … Continue reading ITJFU: The Fitness Marshall YouTube
When my brother was little, he was frequently sick with chest ailments that hospitalized him. A nurse finally told my mom about Chest Percussions, and this reduced the number of emergency visits significantly. Not only that, but these are good for chest colds you may have. Are they good for the Corona Virus? Possibly, but … Continue reading Sick? Chest Percussions Are Your Friend
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is everywhere! I've run across two Youtubers who have EDS, which is always interesting, because all of our experiences with this disorder are different. The first is Jessica Kellgren-Fozard, who has quite a few complications in addition to having to deal with the British healthcare and disability system. (Did you know, that … Continue reading YouTube EDSers!
I have a new Doctor, which is all well and fine, except that means I had to have an intake appointment. The Doctors we saw at our previous clinic kept leaving due to conflicts with administration, and we got sick of it. So, I set up an appointment with the same doctor my husband, parents, … Continue reading I Loathe Intake Appointments
I hadn't had a full out anxiety attack in months - I'm pretty aware of what things might set me off, and I'm careful to take my medications prior to expected events. So, I freak out, but I don't actually have an attack and can calm down with some work. As a side not, I'm … Continue reading Can We Please Not Do That Again: Anxiety Edition
Or something like that. I had no idea what to call this post! BUT, we're addressing my husband's gut issues!!! We have a new doctor. The other clinic we'd been seeing doctors at was aggravating their doctors enough that they were leaving after 6-12 months, and that was aggravating us. Because who likes retelling their … Continue reading Gut Issues, Revisted: The Guttening
This week we brought Tundra in to have his teeth cleaned. We did this with him in 2016 or so, but at his last check up the vets were concerned about his teeth again. So we saved up (it took a few months!), set up an appointment, and brought him in this last week. I … Continue reading Poor Tundra Got His Teeth Cleaned
My Mother-In-Law went in to get a lump checked (it was fine), and the scan they used showed that she had an aneurysm on her Basilar Artery. It's Saccular and about 1 cm in size. It has NOT burst yet. So this week will be a lot of waiting. Waiting for her to meet with … Continue reading My MIL Found an Aneurysm
