Shot 43 & Hgb Results

Mar 09, 2009 - 2 comments

Shot 43 made me very sleepy - slept virtually all weekend, plus had a 3 hour nap this afternoon.

Hgb results back with a .3 increase in 10 days, from 9.7 to 10.  Good news that it's increasing but not high enough to go back to full dose so still at 1000 riba per day.

Have been much more sleepy since dose reduction.  Seeing as how Riba is spelled s.p.e.e.d. I guess that makes sense.  I have been getting better quality sleep since the reduction also.

Not long to go now. 5 weeks, 4 days, 12 hours.
