RITA study has begun

First off we hope EVERYONE had a wonderful Christmas and  New Year!!

Over the Christmas break, I ended up with a stomach bug or something which was not fun. Started feeling bad Sunday 23rd. But powered through it. We went to see my grandmother in the nursing home, then to visit my grandfathers grave site sang take me out the ball game and silent night along with an Our Father prayer. From there we headed to my Aunts where we all hung out, ate dinner and had an awesome time!

Matt and I went in this morning for bloodwork and Ultrasound.
Went to breakfast while we waited for my blood work and ultrasound to be processed and for us to be randomized into the system.

Ate breakfast at House of Pies!!! Matt had never been there. Reminds me of an old diner love that place.

Went back to the doctor office to receive our medication!
The first injection went well no issues!
