Infusion Day One

Infusion's started. This time I'm only doing 3 days of infusions instead of 5. Thank goodness. I thought it had been longer since my last round of infusions, but found out today the last go around was in April Only 4 months ago :(

Thankfully, my home health nurse was able to get the IV in with only one stick. MUCH better than the 12 of last time. The infusion went well. Tastes terrible as always. Thank goodness for Jolly Ranchers hard candy. Help hide the taste.

Now I have the usual post infusion headache. Don't feel too jacked up. I know that feeling comes later. The steroid fog is already descending as well. I hate this stuff.
