Anxiety

I supposed everyone experiences it in their lives…some even struggle with it on a daily basis. I don’t typically get anxious about things but that’s changing. Well, changing about one thing..shot day.

Today is first injection here at home. We decided to delay his second injection until this evening so he can sleep off the possible nausea that is common and have the weekend at home to chill if he should have any other side effects. Two days after his injection last week he got sores on his lips from the meds. Thankfully after adding in a folic acid supplement they went away. Our doctors said that this week we can try to give him a double dose of folic acid on shot day and the day after to try to prevent it from happening again. Fingers crossed that was just a one time thing. I’m really hoping that since we’ll be in the comfort of our own home that this weeks shot will go much better. His brothers will be here to help us distract him and he’ll hopefully be a little more relaxed. 

For now though I’m going to try not to let the anxiety get to me and ruin my day. Hubs is off and we’re going to try to take the boys swimming at the local YMCA. It will be so nice to get out of the house and have some fun family time together!
