Yep...still an active member of the MS Stunt team much to my annoyance! I got up in the middle of the night last night to go to the bathroom. It was pitch black in my room because I stupidly decided the night light was keeping me from falling asleep and hadn’t been using it. Big mistake! The night light is back in place now.
I tripped over something even though I was using the edge of the bed as a guide. I landed flat on the floor as usual. Banged up both knees a little but luckily the right knee was not hurt in the same spot as the fall a couple of months ago. However, this time my face didn’t escape damage. I’ll spare you the details but after being persuaded by my neighbor to go to urgent care this morning, I’m now sporting a huge bandaid over steri tape and glue and placed just above my right eye. I’m incredibly lucky it wasn’t worse. This fall scared me.
And for those of you on Ocevus, they gave me a tetanus vaccine after checking out the info from Genentech about vaccines. The official word is that the vaccine needs to be given at least 6 weeks prior to an infusion. The doctor felt that it was worth given me the vaccine even if it were minimally effective. My last tetanus shot was 8 years ago.
