I never knew what BMX was, until this week. Not the bike either.
Sunday night it started and then Monday it got worse and by Tuesday it was unbearable. Canker sores on the tip of my tongue. Seriously. Lot's of them. I couldn't eat very well (except ice cream and popsicles), I drank more ice water on Monday than I have drank in my entire life I think.
Tuesday I went in for my weekly blood draw and they weren't able to get anything from my arm, so instead of letting them use my hand (b/c that hurts) I went back for a port draw in the afternoon after applying Emla cream. Which also meant I got to see my nurse (didn't realize that the nurses and not the lab had to do the port draw, until I went back). Lucky for me because she was able to look at my mouth and prescribe some BMX mouthwash. Basically it's nasty, thick pink stuff that numbs my tongue that I can "swish" every hour. I put swish in quotes because it's so thick that swishing is nearly impossible because of how thick it is. But it does a FABULOUS job of numbing my sores, so I'll take it!
Other than that everything is going great! We have a super busy week this week. Elliot has swimming lessons in the afternoon and Elliot, Bailey and I have VBS every night, Landon has 2 baseball games this week and he's helping with VBS the other nights. Elliot is going to be one very tired little boy by Friday, but he's having a GREAT time doing it all!
I am happy to report that I have NO appointments today! NONE! Prior to cancer I never realized how excited I would be for an appointment free day! They are rare, but I will enjoy them when they come!
