Healing: just another hospital day… again

Hi from Okadai hospital #nophotos

just waiting for injection & thinking about ya.

Hows ya doing?

Left hat in m-i-l’s car (dropped me off en route to table tennis) so my fwa-fwa hair gives me full mad scientist vibes

Outfit pretty cute though / greens, blues & browns

Gosh, the staff/nurses are so incredibly skilled so today was rather rare but had a mishap getting the spike into my arm, required a couple of tries. First time ever for that. They apologized 75 times. All good, wrapped it up tightly / looks like long wait for next checkpoint

Healing: stumbling (but not defeated) & “rescued” by lunch

Briefly: Messed up date with hospital appointments (every time, like lining up dominos to get all doctors/injections/tests lined up on same day and was supposed to be here last Friday) getting some of the stuff done today but means back here again next Friday. Very discouraged :(

*Not smiling* with my eyes

The hospital staff were super accommodating and got me in for “cocktail injection” and with Chinese Medicine Doctor who reviewed my memo and gave a thorough exam of abdomen, pulses and tongue.

TCM Doctor told me pulses are very weak and shallow, my body is fighting and trying but needs rest + Hot Springs and protein.

of course the hospital has flowers on display

I’ll be back next Friday to finish up the parts of the visit didn’t get done this time including inquiries about options for IVIG & Ozone therapy.
