Wednesday stuff

I’m off to Sacramento for my shot and then to Costco. The last shot left quite a bruise so I’m hoping this one doesn’t. Not sure why some shots bruise and others just redness. This was quite a dark bruise, though.

On Monday the dentist visit really pi#* me off. First, I have all this plaque build up even though I just had a cleaning in January. Evidently the trays for the Invisalign are keeping saliva on my teeth causing whatever  causes plaque. I was in the chair over an hour . For me, that’s quite difficult with my back and later that day my leg was flipping out probably due to the L 1 bulging disc getting affected by sitting in the chair. Then the dentist took off the post for the Invisalign because I’m going to need new  trays. I was getting pretty upset. Then, the technician couldn’t get the thing in my mouth to take the pictures and then resorted to an impression.  So, I decided to not wear the same try in the day and only at night as a retainer. it’s not moving teeth at this point just stabilizing.  I’m seriously thinking this isn’t going to work for me. One reason I’m going to Costco is to get the Sonic care tooth brush. The hygienist said that might help. But the real problem is the trays causing me to retain the saliva I’m obviously producing. Geez, What a PITA.

I made some homemade granola yesterday . Quite tasty and very easy.

Plus in my minimalising my dish sets, I decided to part with my Franciscan ware Desert Rose set. I packed them away in 2013 when I started minimalizing and just opened the box. I had put them on a few shelves, but realised I’m not really going to use them very often. maybe once or twice a year. So I’m sending them to my niecesIMG_0391( my sisters grown daughters and they can have fun with them.

Well, off to get ready.

 

Monday morning….

Unknown.jpegIt’s going to be a really nice day hovering around 70 degrees. As the week goes on even nicer in the 80’s. Today , I go for my regular labs for my Wednesday shot. The neuropathy i back so I guess that’s what it was before. it’s not intolerable but it does make my legs feel funny and I’m not getting up to walk around too quickly. The dex , of course, masks it for a few days but today its quite noticeable. Only 2 more shots in cycle 5 and then the last cycle 6 will be in June. I suppose there is the consideration of not doing cycle 6 but I’d like to have 3 cycles of no m spike.  I guess we’ll see what my doctor says in June. Either way, by July I will be off drugs since he’snot going to do Velcade as maintenance.  Whether i get 6 months drug-free or 1 month, we ‘ll just have to wait and see. I hate the waiting game but not much choice there.

Then I have a dental hygienist appointment after my labs and then a rescan for my Invisalign. What a pain. He discovered there was a filing loose behind a tooth and it was blocking the movement of one tooth . So he had to temporarily fix that and then said I needed to have the  rescan. PITA..

Oh, the joys…

Unknown.jpegYesterday, I made English muffins and they were fun to make. You make a starter kind of like a sourdough then let it rest for 121 hours or so. Then make the dough and slowly rise in the fridge for 24 and then you make little rounds and toast on a griddle. It was pretty cool.  And they tasted good. I don’t think I’d make them all the time but it was fun to do. Next up is trying to make bagels.
