Day #1 ...

I had an appointment with a very nice nurse named Val at UCLA last night, and she filled me in on how to administer my injections, and also about side effects and how to counteract them, etc.  Then I did my first injection.

This morning I woke up feeling a bit like I had been hit by a truck.  Achy and tired.  Then I took the other medication with breakfast while at work, and I felt like I was speeding for a bit.  Now, I'm crashing again.  LOL.

It's going to be a fun 6 months!!  September 30 is the last day!!

Spring is here ...

I love when spring comes around.

Buds coming in on the potted peach tree on my patio.

New growth at the bottom of the peach tree.

The fresh leaves on my ficus tree.

An early rose.

Fresh growth of rose leaves and the faintest signs of rose buds.

Leaves are finally growing back on the tree that was brutally
trimmed this winter off my front upstairs balcony.
Another view.
