I spent most of the day sitting. I was either driving or waiting for a doctor or an infusion. I had Zometa today at UNC, and I liked it there. I have been having the infusion every 4 weeks in Pinehurst. The facility in Pinehurst is very nice, but I need to save a few bucks, and the cost is higher there. Believe it or not, it’s over $2,000.00 for a 9 mg dose. At UNC I think it’s under $1,800.00. The nurses at UNC a very nice, and they have a great sense of humor. I went to have my infusion with J.W., and we spent most of the time talking to the nurses and to each other.
My IgA was up a bit – about 200 mg/dL. I know why. I cut my dex from 2 days a week back to one. Dex is a very hard drug to take, and it seems to get harder for me the longer I take it. The thought that I may have to take it for years sort of makes a stem cell transplant look appealing.
I refinanced my house. I started trying to do it back in March, when rates were really low. The mortgage company I chose seemed to bumble everything. I couldn’t believe it. By June 1st I decided they needed the boot. I want to recommend my new company for anyone who’s looking for a mortgage. It’s called Countrywide. It took them no time at all to get me refinanced.
