Smooches from my Baloo Bear to celebrate Round 14 of Radicava Ridiculousness being complete! I also wanna brag on this big brown lover boy, the other night as I was finishing up in the shower I told Baloo "Go Get Dad". And you know what? He did! We haven't practiced that before, which makes it … Continue reading Round 14 – Done!
One year ago today I started on my journey with Radicava Ridiculousness. It's been a hell of a year, port placement - my first surgery - and two followup procedures to keep it working properly, a fun stay in the Baton Rouge emergency room - sarcasm - and lots of trips and new caregivers … Continue reading 10.4.18 Radicava-aversary
Radicava is becoming so routine that I completely forgot to document Round 12! Hope it was as good for you as it was for me - insert some corny joke about only smoking after sex - so here we are: Lucky Round 13 of Radicava Ridiculousness. Did I tell you I started on Medicare in … Continue reading 9.13.18 Round 13 is Rollin’
Today, July 31, 2018 will go down in the books as a very, very exhausting one. Round 11 of Radicava Ridiculousness wrapped up last week. I've been having issues with Paula the Port, getting accessed mostly, so today's appointment was supposed to take 30 minutes and be easy peasy. Exhausting remember? 7 sticks and … Continue reading 7.31.18 Radicava, Richter, Rest
I love that Radicava Ridiculousness is so routine that we can just mention in passing while including a pic of some of the sweetest Hico boys. I hate that the tegaderm is so itchy that I feel like chewing my arm off, but I'll take it. I shared a blog post the other day about … Continue reading 7.3.18 Round 10 – Done!
Sunday night I got to return to the program that got me where I am today. Upward Bound is a program that I've blogged about on many different occasions, and before I was "Dorm Mom Sunny" I worked for the UB program at Weatherford College. Sunday evening brought all of my worlds together on one … Continue reading 6.19.18 That’s Why God Made Mexico
I wrapped up Round 9 of Radicava Ridiculousness last week and was VERY excited about these findings 🙂 Reblogged from ALS News Today Treeway’s Oral Formulation of Edavarone for ALS Shows Promise in Phase 1 Trial MAY 31, 2018 BY JOSE MARQUES LOPES, PHD IN NEWS. An experimental oral formulation of edavorone for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), called TW001, … Continue reading Reblog: Oral Edavarone
Round 8 started Monday and so far nothing too exciting to report. With Radicava, no change is the goal because this drug is supposed to slow the progression. No news is good news. I realized recently that we haven't really discussed why I'm taking this medication, it's importance in the fight against in ALS, and … Continue reading 4.25.18 Round 8 Radicava Ridiculousness
Round 7 is half way done and Paula the Port and the mean tegaderm aren't being nice. Thankfully Phil had my back.
It's been a while since we really chatted about what's been going on. February is easily my favorite month - birthday month, duh - but it always goes by entirely too fast. We didn't do a big birthday bash like normal but we sold the heck out of some Super Bowl squares and over $1500 … Continue reading 3.8.18 Throwback Thursday
