I had the most relaxing, amazing weekend!
I feel so blessed to have such wonderful caring friends and supportive family. I was invited to join three gal pals to spend the weekend at a fabulous cottage on Boca Grande.
It could not have come at a better time. Last Monday I had called my doc's office to tell them that I was experiencing double vision (well one and a half vision). This came on the heels of my week of physically paying for my mulch-madness gardening faux pas. "Promptly", as usual, I received a call on Thursday afternoon from the nurse telling me the doctor wanted me to go get a MRI that night or Friday morning at the latest and then get myself to the hospital for the first day of a three day Solu drip. I informed her that I was feeling fine, (better than last week) seeing clearly (at least only one of everything) and that I had plans that didn't include being hooked up to an IV of steroids for three days.
So, I agreed to the MRI for crack of dawn on Friday morning and told her I would wait for the doc to read the results (that could be a week from now) and make decisions from there about meds or treatments.
Well, the weekend was wonderful. It was so restful that it felt like a week of bliss. I was surrounded by the company of good friends, amazing gardens, a beautiful beach, and staying in the lovely cottage home of a wonderfully generous couple that I haven't even personally met yet. Many thanks to all.
Sooooooo much better medicine than a three day drip!
