tysabri #4

well, I was expecting this one to be effortless but failed to meet my expectations.  The nurse almost missed the loomingly large IV site and then pushed the Decadron too fast, giving me weird symptoms, and then I got a headache from the Tysabri (perhaps because the Decadron was pushed too fast?) and was over 12 hrs shaking that one, but eventually shook it with a pharmaceutical cocktail.  Now visiting with youngest son in NC

and then a week of quilting with a friend in TN next week, then a week-end with #1 son, and then headed toward God's Country for a summer of work and fun in the woods and a new infusion site.

Sometimes (not often, thankfully!), the nurse has a hard time starting my i.v..  This last infusion was one of them.  I don't get Decadron with my Tysabri - I just take it neat.  ;-)

There will be bad days along with the good, like so many other repeated situations.

Enjoy your holiday, and your new home in the woods!
