This is the first post for 2011. I've been trying to write it for quite a few days now. I couldn't. I didn't know what to write... First posts have to be happy, positive, inspiring. I'm not lately... I'm sad, negative, pessimistic, angry, depressed, lonely and totally not inspiring to anyone than maybe my dog Pepe, who is always a happy soul no matter what!
I guess the fact that I haven't been outside my house since December 31st -went to the hairdresser across the street and to my brother's place for New Year's Eve- is not helping me much. I feel "imprisoned", but I cannot do otherwise. I feel so weak, so all I do is sleep, physical therapy sessions, IV infusion sessions and movies on my laptop. Actually movies and sitcoms. A lot of sitcoms. A lot of "How I Met Your Mother" currently. And a lot of sleep. And twitter. It's a phase, ok. It will pass too...
So after almost a month of detox, I started Tavanic (Levaquin) last Thursday. For the first infusion I was supposed to go to the Hospital, just in case I was allergic to this drug. But after some thought and discussion with my nurse Yiannis, I decided to have it home with the presence of a doctor. Everything went just fine, Yiannis did the whole thing, the doctor just checked my heart-rate and stayed for the whole 1-hour procedure. By the way, until now the infusions (Rocephin) lasted half hour daily. Tavanic has to be infused for one hour daily! I'm lucky Yiannis is such a good guy, because I can't imagine having to see a person so much otherwise.
Tavanic it is then, for at least two months and then we'll see. Supplements as before. Ah and I promise to blog more often... :)
