I Survived (More Importantly I Have Power!!)

Hurricane Irene's bark was (luckily!) way worst than her bite. I found ways to keep busy while she huffed and puffed-most of them included looking good (see image below).
I was actually at the hospital yesterday for my second Remicade infusion for my Ulcerative Colitis. I will forever refer to this as "extreme infusion" trying to catch a taxi in a hurricane takes lots o' luck.

The window kept making awful noise with all the wind, I thought it was going to blow in! Waah!
Roger read literature while I engaged in shenanigans.
Caught in the act: Shenanigans.
Drip faster suckers! I have places to beeeeeee.
Check out my sweet hospital bracelet. This would have come in helpful if the window did blow in and I got conked on the head and forgot who I was...or ended up in Oz. I am happy to report this did no happen.
Air Jordan accompanied to the appointment, he's a gentleman. Side note: I love this backpack.
It's hardcore to get internet access around here, each patient gets their own access code. Big Brother is watching.
These curtains get so boring after a couple of hours. White polka dot....white polka dot...white polka dot...I'd like some switch ups. Maybe a square here or there.
We played fruit ninja. Ever play? Good times.
I got a little punchy and Roger nabbed the camera. Regard the aftermath.
Captured: A victim of Hurricane Irene. I think the stress of it all got to much for my poor little orchid, because in the middle of watching a weather report the news this poor little guy drifted to the carpet like the rose in Beauty and the Beast. Times is hard.
And here's the fort during Hurricane Irene.
We ordered $45 worth of Domino's Pizza thinking it could sustain us for days. Luckily we never lost power (YESSSSS). My parent on the other hand are powerless and could be for weeks!! AHH!
Here's what I'm working with today
This is my last day of summer, as of tomorrow I am officially a graduate student!! I already have homework, better get to it!!!

  43. haha, your writing is so much fun to read!
    Such a pity you have to go to the hospital every time!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm glad you made it through Irene. Hope your health's ok! I spent 2 or so years in the hospital when my dad was sick and somebody really needs to document it - it's so surreal!

  49. Hope you feel better! I've never heard of a Remicade infusion. My hubby has Ulcerative Colitis too and it's been really sucky lately. My brain has been going around and around in circles trying to figure out how to help him manage it. I should look into Remicade. Thanks!

  56. Glad to hear that you're okay! My parents don't have power either! The power authority intentionally turned it off today so they can fix other people.
