Well, the spotting has let up. I believe it is because I relaxed yesterday and got myself out of the heat.
However in all of the worrying that I allowed myself to do, I was grinding my teeth so hard I ended up with a headache and some tooth pain. I dug out my old mouth guard and started to use that. I used to grind my teeth a lot when I was stressing in my previous career. Last night I had a dream where I had to be a student in a class and I didn’t have a clue what was going on. I thought I could wing it, but the perfectionist in me wanted to have a handle on everything and no matter what was being asked of me I couldn’t be ready for it. I was in band and couldn’t find the music I needed, I was in an English class and was getting graded for my vocal flashcards but I could only find Science flashcards, I was trying to get to a tournament in Ohio only to find that the club I showed up at wasn’t the host club. I think all of the uncertainty of if things are okay or not is creeping into my subconscious.
We have follow up blood work on Monday. Yesterday I was at the hematologist to see how I am doing post IV Iron. I am up to 11.2 (Normal is 12). That is great considering how low I was before. He thinks that I should continue to improve now that I have a lot of iron in my bank. So that was a nice bit of news. I may still have to do another one, but for now I am where he wants to see my levels at.
We are going to head to Wisconsin for a little get-away. I can crank the AC in the hotel room and just chill should I not want to be outside at the Renaissance Faire. This will be our 3rd year at the faire. We love it. I probably will not dress as I usually do. I doubt that a corset will be a healthy choice. So, some lightweight clothing and lots of sunscreen will be the plan. We plan on heading out shortly, so I am signing off.
I hope that it stays cooler as the forecast says it should.
