MY WORD OF THE WEEK.
This week my word of the week is needles.
Not a nice word I guess, I know Star would run a mile if she saw the nurse coming with the blue tray that they carry the needles in.
Monday was treatment day and I had to go to the day ward for my IVIG. The nurses are really good, but sometimes my veins don’t want to play. Monday was one of those days and I ended up with bruises all over the back of my hand thanks to them not being able to insert the cannula. Eventually it was put in the side of my thumb which felt weird. At least I don’t have to leave it in all week.
Then on Wednesday night I couldn’t sleep thanks to a painful tooth. I phoned my dentist in the morning and she said she could fit me in at two thirty (tooth hurty!) Before I knew it I was on my back on the white plastic chair with a big needle heading towards my mouth. The tooth had to be removed. It still hasn’t stopped hurting though.
Graham is getting on well with the decorating, he’s now painted three walls, the ceiling and the door. We just have the skirting board to paint and the wallpaper put up on the fourth wall. Ive bought some nice new curtains to match but they are standard length so I’ve had to get out my needle and thread and sew them up a few inches.
I can’t wait to order my carpet now. I was going to do it today, but I wasnt feeling well. I do have to go out though, we have a special birthday this weekend, my daughter is 30. We are going out for a meal at the Teppanyaki restaurant, where we are looking forward to some lobster.
Also, next week I will be going to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat with my old school friend. We were both in the choir in our school production back in 1978. I wonder if we will remember the words.
This weeks badge has had some code tweaking by Louise so fingers crossed it works better.

Having to have multiple attempts at having a cannula in is not fun – we had this a few times with Jessica and ended up with cannulas in some slightly strange places. Not the side of a thumb though – I can imagine that felt weird! Sorry to hear that your tooth is still hurting – hope that this eases very soon. Glad that the decorating is making progress. Happy 30th birthday to your daughter – hope you have a lovely evening celebrating her birthday and fingers crossed the linky badge code works for everyone – it looks good at this end! Thanks for hosting #WotW
It’s funny how fast you get used to having needles when it becomes a regular part of life. Like you, they always struggle with my veins, we must be extra special I think. Sorry to hear about your tooth, I hope the pain settles down soon for you. I hope your daughter has a nice birthday, it’s lovely the way you celebrate everyone in your family with nice meals out. Isn’t it fab that Jason Donovan is returning to Joseph this year, I bet he’s not forgotten any of the songs, hope you enjoy the show.
I’d have loved to have seen Jason Donovan first time around, or even Philip Schofield. Heck, I’d even have loved to have seen lee Mears! We will be seeing some young singer from Union J, Jaymi Hensley. (I don’t actually know who he is!) 🙂
Oh lovely that is a nightmare. I’ve had that in the past and it’s not fun. I hope the pain is easing and your tooh is better. Glad the decorating goes well xx
I’m thinking it might be infected, I hope it eases before we go out for meal on Sunday. xx
I hope you and your daughter have a wonderful weekend celebrating her 30th! So sorry you had to face so many needles this week, especially the big one headed for your mouth. Ouch! The time for your dentist appointment was appropriate – tooth hurty! 😀
Thank you, I’m just hoping my mouth is feeling better for her birthday as there are many treats to be had 🙂
That does seem a lot of needles. Several times over. I’m glad they finally found a place for the cannula. Hope your teeth are no longer playing you up. It is horrid. Happy birthday to your daughter. I hope you all have a great meal out. Thank you for hosting. #wotw
Ooh some of those needles don’t sound pleasant, I hope you feel better soon. Enjoy Joseph! I’ve never seen it but it’s on my list!
Eesh what a pain them pesky viens are. I hope you feel better soon with your tooth. How lovely to go out for a meal and happy birthday to your daughter X #wotw
Aw no what a week, I suppose needles are part of our every day life with Jack but they are not nice, in fact I don’t like them being stuck in me at all, although I try to be brave its so hard. And then your tooth that’s such bad luck. Hope you have a lovely time at your daughters 30th and have a better week x
