ivig was best so far

Good Morning all or anyone who is still there :)
Just wanted to make a not that yesterday's treatment was the best so far.
We only needed to use 1/4 of the total amount of anti nausea medication. The side effects were less invasive as well. It is like a full body restless leg syndrome where the whole of me is just real unpleasantly stretching and jerking.
It was so much better. I was even able to sleep it off. The time line now has gone down from 6 hours to 5 hours 40 minutes.
The labs came back and terrific news. I am no longer depleting my lymphatic system just to stay well. Those levels are on the rise dramatically.

The full gama globulin levels have gone from  16 in April, to 26 in June  up to 
740 in September.
The normal range is 700-1600!

I am really reponding so well. 
Across the board the labs are really improving. My strength is getting better as well. 
My Mister and I even were able to have a little mini date while the kids went to a birthday party. So a nice little drive and even a walk around the mall! Yes a walk after infusion! We went and got the kids 2 hours after we dropped them off. We pulled up to the house and I was starting to get out of the car and it hit I was like a zombie trying to get inside. Revived a bit to heat a snack to give the family. Tried to spend a time with Dash and fell out hard and deep. After a good hour was able to rise to watch an event that is vailed due to Steves employ.

It was TERRIFIC news for his employer. This is a very exciting time and now we have a good hope that Steve's job will be more secure. After four years of effort, success was established. This is huge for more than just our little family. Wish I could say more. Suffice it to say God is Good!

So today I have to go eat humble pie for I got a traffic ticket and have to go to traffic school all day. 7:30-5 pm.  At least my health is serving me well enough not to dread it. So I better get going.
Everyone enjoy your day. Remember we never know who will cross our path. Be a blessing and recieve all that the day has to offer you as well.

Such wonderful news sis, love you.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
