Infusion Day

Three needle sticks today. Shy of the record four sticks. Wasn’t terrible, even with the needlephobia.

That was fun. Veins in my left hand is the winners it seems.

As I mentioned before, my infusions happen every two months/sixty days. Most of the time I’ll get a bit worn down a couple of weeks before being infused with Tysabri, but this time the spasticity in my calf was intolerable for around the last few weeks prior to infusion. Deep thought was off the table for that period of time too.

Getting infused with that sweet Tysabri

Already my calf is getting less spastic. It isn’t better, but give it a few days and I’ll be off my baclofen and life will be way easier. I’ll be able to think too – hopefully – I’ve still got three kids in the house including a two-year-old gone wild.

Hospital Food

The nicest part was my wife getting my appointment moved from 14:45 to 10:30. That means I get to have an awesome hospital lunch. Yeah, it may be hospital food, but at least it is food to have during my infusion. I was gonna stop and get a big old authentic steak burrito if my appointment had not changed. At least I didn’t have to stop to get food.

And for a bonus, my first public video on youtube: I apologize for the terrible audio. Go easy on me.
