Erinn at the doctor's office, she had just gotten an IV.

Erinn has been worsening over the last couple of weeks. Right now, she needs to be taking some new meds, and when test results finally come in, there may be even more meds to add to that.
She has a terrible time swallowing pills, and even taking liquid meds because of her almost constant nausea. We have a hard time finding a time slot where she can actually take meds. Kiwi recently told me about Nux Vomica and that has been helpful. Not totally, and not enough to take her pills when she should, but it's a relief that she can take something natural for nausea instead of having to rely solely on a prescription.
Tuesday and Wednesday Erinn managed to take all her pills on time, and she actually had a little more energy than usual! But, today she feels SO awful that she only got a couple of pills down and those were hours later than they should have been, and majorly traumatic! On days like this, it's a full time job to take care of her. I am so thankful to be able to be at home with her. I get a few minutes here and there to run out and feed bottle babies, check on new chicks, feed various critters, milk the goats, etc, but cant stay outside too long. On her 2 decent days this week I did manage to get both gardens weeded! That was a huge relief because I was way behind on that and it's supposed to rain some over the next couple of days.
Well, I'm off to cook supper - please be praying for Erinn. That she can take all her meds, and that maybe we could even get some schoolwork done!
