Hi all...
My Rituxan infusion went really well. The pre-meds made me very tired and I ended up sleeping through the whole process. Came home, had diner and then fell asleep again for another 3 hours. Headed to bed now and will let you know if anything new comes up tomorrow with the R. So far so good though..."totally do-able" and beats the heck out of the chemo treatments! Hope everyone had a love filled Valentines Day...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)

Hi Sue,
I am so happy to hear that your infusion went so well. Hopefully you are sound asleep and very comfy. I'll check in tomorrow and see how your night went.
peaceful healing

Hi Sue,

Good morning sleepy head. I am sure your body was telling you something. I needs lots of sleep. So happy the Rituxan treatment went so well.

Always in my thoughts. Love Maggie

Sue,
I posted on another thread asking about the R. So far it is thumbs up I see. I know you are still having the effects of the past Chemo with being tired. Just checking to see if the R had any effects or not. You will know more later I am sure. John(FNHL-1-4A-5/10)

Hi Sue,

I'm glad everything went really well for you yesterday. I used to come home really tired after my rituxan and it would last for a day or two. I think it was because of the benedryl. Now when I get the rituxan for my RA I get the benedryl but I no longer get the tiredness. Go Figure.

Love, Leslie

Hi all,
Well..I slept great last night and today I feel good except I'm still kind of tired and sluggish. I think the pre-meds from yesterday are still in my system a bit and without the prednisone surging through me I'm thinkin the pre-meds did a double whammy on me. Thats ok though..there's nothing special I need to get done so I'm just chillin out and going with the flow. It's a rainy cold day here, so staying in and being lazy seems like the right thing to do..."works for me". Made Chili and corn muffins for diner..perfect food for a yucky day! ha! We are going to a boat show on Friday..(Steve's taking the day off), so I'm really looking forward to doing that.Hope everyone is having a good week.
Love..Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)
P.S. Tom posted some pictures on his expression page showing the skin cancer he has been battling...wow...really makes me stop and think about all of the years of tanning I did...NO MORE for me! Anyways..you should visit his expression page. He posted a recent good picture of himself also.

Hi, Sue,

Sounds like your experience was better than the pred, right? Nice and mellow!! What a relief for you. Enjoy the boat show.

Hugs
