I am renaming Solumedrol to Solu–metal. I am in the middle of an infusion and my mouth tastes like metal. I don’t know why I think I know what metal tastes like but I do. I am eating Cinnamon Jelly Beans to take away the flavor but they are not helping much.
The home health nurse that started my IV had a tough time. He was successful on the fourth try. I was ready to call it quits. He asked me if I had any allergies after the infusion had started. I wanted to say, “Yes, I’m allergic to Solumedrol” and recommend that he ask that question prior to the procedure. In any case, I will be finished in about an hour and Mark is going to pull the IV when he gets home from work.
I have trying to think of a way to describe my vertigo/equilibrium problem. It feels like I am trying to get through the day on an Alaskan fishing boat during a storm. Nothing is steady. I don’t even think they actually fish under those circumstances so I guess I shouldn’t be upset that the only thing I seem to be able to do with any success is laundry. It is such a struggle to do the simplest things. I can only hope this solumetal works fast!
Thanks to everyone for your comments. The support I receive at home and online is overwhelming and really keeps me smiling. Thank you so so much.
