I guess a blog post is due, eh? So yesterday this happened:
I now have a heart holster monitor strapped to me thanks to the Providence heart center. No showers for two days. Ick. I qualified for Project Access so now I can see the specialists. So I’ve been on 4 different antibiotics since Thanksgiving to get rid of whatever mysterious bug that was making me sick and causing a long sinus infection of doom. For the first time since living here my allergies have become so bad my doctor actually prescribed me Claritin and Flonase.
My current list of medicatons?
- Gabapentin 1800mg 3 x a day.
- Flexeril 10mg 2 x a day
- Atenolol 25mg 1 x a day
- Drisdol(Vit. D) 50,000iu 1 x weekly
- Simvastatin 20mg 1 x daily
- Abilify 10mg 1 x daily
- Lisinopril 10mg 1 x daily
- Loratadine 10mg 1 x daily
- Aspirin 81mg 1 x daily
- Hydroxyzine 150mg 1 x daily
- Metformin HCL 500mg 2 x daily
Much fun. I’ve been working on earrings, I have some supplies coming for necklaces. If I can sell a couple more earrings I can get the rest of the supplies I need for necklaces. Yesterday Kharizma picked me up and treated us to Black Rock coffee. Oh goddess it’s SO good. I got a white mocha caramel thing, next time I think I’ll try it cold, it was good hot though. Also the girl who gave us the coffees got them backwards. Then we went to Providence so I could get the little machine strapped to me. Then we went to Sushi & Maki and Kharizma bought lunch. I had a spicy tuna and crab roll and a fire ball. Mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese and spicy tuna then tempura fried. Mmmm. Then we stopped at Payless shoes and looked around, then Michaels, then home I came.
In car news our Durango yet again, has died. We took it into Dawn’s friend on Monday to check it out because the thing that DEQ uses for a smog check had no power going to it. The electrical went wonky the previous week. The back windshield wiper, inside lights, radio and mirror adjuster things stopped working. *sigh* So we took it in and we apparently missed one fuse. He replaced it and checked it and power was going to the DEQ thinger. So we came home and later on Monday went to go to the store for my mom and the car is dead. Dead, dead. No power at all. Nothing happened when Kai tried to start it.
So Ben tried to jump it. Nope. Didn’t work. It sounded like it wanted to start, but it refused. *sigh* So I have no idea. Kharizma suggested getting a cheap $500 car when we can and just use that until it dies. I agree with this idea. We just don’t have $500. We has nada right now. I have to call Dawn’s friend today to see how much it will cost to look at and fix. Hopefully it’s a really cheap fix. No buses run out to where Kai works. Thursday nights are really the only problem picking him up because Ben has a thing that night. Kharizma and Dawn have been helping pick him up. But yeah. Dead car = oh shit.
