13th Infusion

It didn’t help that I had my 13th infusion on June 06, 2006 or 06 06 06. I’m not normally superstitious but when it comes to matters of health or something like it, I’d like all things to be on my side. So imagine my nervousness on infusion day…

Well all in all it went well. My heart rate was up before starting the infusion but it was due to the fact that I had trouble.. well, going to the bathroom. After awhile my heart rate went back to normal. We were able to go through with the infusion without a hitch.

We ended a bit late though since there was a delay in mixing the enzyme. Nothing major. The pharmacy people had a meeting prior to mixing the medicine and couldn’t start on time.

After the 13th infusion, I must say there has been improvements. Small, very small but I know it for a fact. I can move my left arm slightly better. My neck muscles are also getting stronger.

So we’re halfway through the year. Things are looking ok. I hope that the next half is even better.
