2 Nd loading Rituximab done .. And good !

2 Nd loading Rituximab done .. And good !

So again early start and three birds asked me to say how it went!

So overall good! Easy cannula yes, methotrexate check bloods obtained then premed of paracetamol and Piriton prior to methypred infusion. Then a half hour wait or do and Rituximab started. They put it in an hour quicker this time so as I started early I was finished by 3.45 pm !

Lazy morning watched " the theory of everything" wonderful if sad. Then had a sandwich then " the Heat" with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy and it was hysterical!

So home now with a rotten headache and tired BUT very manageable and I'm drinking water.

I see them for check bloods in two weeks but then see the consultant and biological nurse in June who decide when I can of cannot have another one!

My hubby says I seem more agile tho?!!!!!!!!

So off to our caravan, hoping not to fall out! And wish you all a nice bank holiday , those who have to work like I used too I am thinking bout you xx A :)
