Red Sox, Lupron, and the importance of pinching

This weekend Aaron and I went to see the Red Sox. Aaron got the tickets from his office, as a little bonus - and did we have a blast!

Sadly, things went badly in the 11th inning... and we lost. But it was SO much fun. We were there until 1:30 AM.

I'm on day 3 of the Lupron, and thankfully - no side effects as of yet. I've had a cold for the past week, so maybe I'm just concentrating on being miserable with that? Aaron has been giving me the shots in the morning (I've been doing the back of my upper arm - it works out great), and this morning, he forgot to pinch my skin. OUCH. Lessons learned.

So jealous you got to go to the game. I'm a displaced new englander and I haven't been to a sox game in over 2 years, so sad.

Glad you're doing well on the Lupron, Good luck!!!

Glad the shots are going okay, never thought of doing my upper arm!

Just wait for the Vaginal Dryness that I Dar Not Speak of to hit you. You'll never want to have sex again.

Oh, and even if your hubby can convince you, teh headaches will take care of it. :)

PS. I found that either pinching, or pulling the skin taut to the side worked fine. So does just shoving the damn needle into the hilt and injecting. It's over before your brain works out that it stings a bit.

I pick up my meds tomorrow! Aaaaah! Are your lupron shots sub-cutaneous? Glad you aren't having any s/e. Sorry about your cold, hope you feel better soon.
