I Ain't Dead Yet...

     Yep...survived my second Tysabri infusion today (I'm sure much to the disappointment of a few)...looks like I ain't dead yet!

     The infusion went remarkably smoother "technically-wise" today.  I only had to stay at Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named office for a little over two hours...much better than the first 3 1/2 hour saga in August.  It seems the office staff of Dr. SWWNBN prefer cookies instead of cupcakes (**mental note made**), but they did not turn me away with the dozen Top Pot Doughnuts I carried for insurance of survival.

     I do seem to be having the same post infusion fatigue/arthralgia I had after the first dose.  It hits me even before I am leaving the office.  I also noticed my face got flush and I felt "hot" during the infusion as well...not to mention the perspiration beads on my back and neck.  BUT...other than THAT...I'm tolerating the Tysabri well (**knocking on wood**).

     I'm pretty tired, so I apologize for having to stretch soooo far to find anything humorous to type.  I just thought I should warn you as soon as possible, however...I AM STILL ALIVE and PML free!

I am so sorry you had to go to so much trouble yesterday to retrieve my message--it wasn't funny and it wasn't the least bit clever and hardly worth your time!   Am happy to know you have survived one more infusion.

MDMHVONPA:  Not sure why AOHELL is choosing NOT to post actual comments the past 24 hours, yet send ME an email alert the comment is there!  So....here's your cut and paste email comment and response:
