October 10 marked my 21st “Myozyme”:http://www.myozyme.com/ infusion. I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, how time flies by so quickly. I can’t believe it’s October and that I’m on my 21st infusion. It really seems like yesterday when we I had my first.
The previous night when like most nights when we’d check in to the hospital. Unlike the last two times though I wasn’t coughing anymore so I had a relatively easier time. I won’t dwell too much on the previous night as it was for the most part uneventful.
The next morning we woke up earlier. It had been agreed upod last time that we’d try to start the infusions earlier than what we have been doing. This meant getting up a full hour earlier. I woke up at 6 a.m. and we all started the day. Stretching, breakfast, bathroom, etc.. Normal routine.
My doctors came in at 9 a.m. to prep me for infusion. Dr. Lani and Dr. Conch were there to put in the I.V. line. (Dr. Conch, if you’re reading this, there you’re on my blog!, Dr. Lani told me you were “nagtatampo” coz I didn’t write about your inserting skills. hahaha. ) Dr. Conch was the one who inserted the I.V. line. I must say she did a good job as she got it on one go.
We started the infusion at 10 a.m. The whole thing went well, as in most days. The lead Dr. couldn’t make it today because of other more important matters. The day went well. We sang a little, while watching the “Karaoke”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karaoke channel, had a very interesting covnersation with Dr. Lani. Overall a really good day.
We ended earlier. The infusion was done around 1:30 p.m. and I had lunch shortly thereafter. I think I like this schedule better since we finish earlier and I get to go home much earlier.
