So, I see my hematologist again at the end of the month. And, no matter what, he's said that he WILL take me off of the iv iron for a few months. One would think that I would be overjoyed at not having to get an iv twice a week. One would think I would be happy that I could stop paying my insurance co-payment twice a week. One would think, huh?

Well, the ONE thing that I'm most excited about is the re-introduction of caffeine into my system. There's a little pharmacy/store on the ground floor of the medical building where my doctor is and I plan to leave his office, head down to the store, and buy the biggest bottle of Coke that I can find. I plan to drink it standing right at the refrigerator, before I even pay for it.

You see, my drinks of choice are Coke/Pepsi and tea. And for some reason, caffeine hinders the ability of one's body to absorb iron, so I haven't had any, guilt-free, in months. Now, NOTICE---I didn't say I hadn't had any. I said GUILT-FREE!!!

Anyhow, I can't wait to overindulge...

    Shoo my doctor didnt tell me that about caffeine. But then I only take ferrous sulfate for my anemia. I usually only have one soda a day so hopefully that's not too bad and maybe 2 cups of tea.

    That will be the best dose of caffeine you've ever had. LOL!

    ok Jewels...I know you're craving caffine...maybe, just have one. Have some caffine occasionally, but don't go back to what you used to do , kiddo. Caffine is not good for the body, especially for us ladies of distinction. (hehehehe, another way of saying we are growing older). So..go ahead, indulge, just this one time.
