Good luck buddy...hope everything went off without a hitch. You should be getting home soon if you went in this morning....(9:30 here...12:30 there)in NC. I always schedule mine for as early as possible. Is this the last one until 5 mo's from now? Hope so...then you can have a nice long rest before going back at it again. Enjoy your napping today, as I'm sure the benedryl will make you drowsy. Thinking good thoughts for you...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)

Hi John, I was thinking of you and how you were doing? As Sue said hopefully your treatment went well today! Haven't seen you post a lot hoping that's because you've been busy! Take care of yourself and keep us posted.

Sincerely,
Liz

Dear John,

Of course you haven't lost your sense of humor!

I wish you the best, and hope your Rituxan treatment goes well. Hmmm, am I correct? Did
you have a problem with the before treatment of Prednisone? Will they give you prednisone
first? Keep us updated, OK.

Love Maggie

Maggie,
I had very little problem with the Pred except it did keep me up late. I do not get Pred anymore. I just get the tylenol and benedryl before I get the Rituxin infusion. John

You know the drill like I do with the R. We hate to drag our butts in there,but we do because we have too. It goes pretty fast after the first one for me. Mine last for 4 weeks. I go in 1 day a week for 4 weeks,then its home free for 6 months. The first visit is an all day adventure because they have to infuse the R slowly to make sure there are no reactions. The next three are less than half the time. I got one more to go in this session and its scan time next month. Thats the longest month of the year for me. My butt is draggin' from the R and will sleep good tonight. Thanks, John

glad everything went as well as expected, it always makes me tired. I have my 24 hour infustion today and 90-minutes tomorrow then hopefully i'll get to go home since my doctors nurse said i would only be here for 24 hours and i don't think i left my cat out enough cat food. blessings denise

Denise,
Good Luck today with the infusion. Your cat will be fine. They can go a day at least without eating. They may not like it a bunch,but they will be fine. John
