Yeah I just hit 40 with a body going on 80 and with a muscle disease that will leave me in wheel chair if I am unlucky. But I am loved and that is most important.

I will take a needle any day or night over liquid medication. One time I had an IV going in each arm. If I can taste it, I will gag, dry heave, vomit and anything else. Even run away. I just can't swallow it. I have even had an IV in my neck. Nine times out of ten, I get a person who knows what they are doing and I don't even feel the needle go in. Not even the one in the neck. And I was wide awake for that one. Pills or IV. Either one is fine with me.

The best thing about an `iV is when they take it OUT! That's nirvana

Oh yes, out with IV, since they have to retake every day because my arms veins goes NOPE do not like, let shut this off.

Enough with hospital talk!!

Tomorrow I am so looking forward to the huge food festival in town. It not over all of town but crammed into the major square, it so tightly packed it silly and they dont use the hole square either. My four year old daughter want to go and find ice cream and sausage and hot sauce.
