Love is a Battlefield
Thanks for the title, Pat Benetar! The love is for my little snowbabies...the battlefield, well that is still my abdomen. Today, when I removed the 3 patches from Sunday, thankfully I did not have any more blisters...just itchy welts. I got a call back from the nurse and the other form of estrogen they use is also a patch. I used this other patch once before and, while I didn't have the extreme reaction I had the other day, I still had a reaction. And the patches are about 4 times the size of the ones I have now! So, call it "motherly love" if you want, but if this is what my body needs to make a cozy environment for my babies, I will slather on the neosporin and deal with it! I suppose it is just yet another means to a happy ending! That all being said, I have 4 brand new patches on today and I will trade them for 4 fresh ones on Thursday! If the welts persist, I'm going to have to find some new real estate for them to reside...or we can just play checkers on my stomach to pass the time on bedrest!!
