Steroids Day Two....

Day two of steroids starts off with a bang.  I haven't had much sleep tonight, it is 4 AM and I'm up for the fifth or sixth time.  So, I went ahead to flush my IV and it's no good.  I'm waiting for several hours to call the home health nurse to come back and try to start another.  It took four sticks to get the one I had and now because that IV is no good they won't be able to try again to use that hand.  I'm going to try and drink a lot of fluids so hopefully she will have better luck later this morning getting a vein.

My poor cat has followed me around all night wishing I would settle down so she could curl up with me and go to sleep.  My husband slept in the guest room so that my wanderings and watching TV, wouldn't bother him.  Thank goodness for satellite TV.  At least, I watched the news all night.  Now I have more information floating around in my brain than I wanted.  Why can't they ever report anything good happening?
