Day 1 to a Cure!

Hello Everyone,

Tammy and I are going to U of M bright and early on Monday morning, 7:30 am, to get Rituxan!

Rituxan the greatest Mono-clonal antibody this side of the Mississippi.

It is a good day when we can get excited about a drug that is designed to save your life!

I will let you know how it went!

Ok, I completed the first day of Rituxan only after 8 hours in the hospital.

It was not fun!

I thought I was going to make it with no problems but then it happened.

Tight Chest, Fever, Chills - I did not feel good.

They stopped giving me the drug so my body could adjust. After I was feeling better they started it back up and I completed getting the full dose.

We got home around 4:00 and I went to bed to wake up with a fever 102. I got Tylenol and felt much better.

Slept for 14 hours and I am at work on Tuesday!

Crazy isn't it!

My goal is to keep everything as normal as possible, so, I plan to work as much as possible.

Keep checking back for more stories!!!

Until we Meet Again,
