In the treatment room...

9:55 am-- Here we are in the treatment room. There are 12-15 recliners with, currently, six patients. Dr. Hema just walked through to check on several of his patients, including me. His nurse, K (for Kindness) has been here twice! Everyone is so caring and kind. I have had my blood tested and given pre-medications but the rituxan has not started yet.

So far, I am not too bored because I am taking in the sights and sounds. I'm sure that by the end of the day, I will be quite bored however. Brudder suggested that sitting in a recliner with my laptop with a TV nearby won't actually be too different from every other day! He's largely correct.

My laptop has a DVD drive, so I have brought a couple of movies. This morning's selection is The Killing starring Sterling Hayden.

My adorable wife is here but she keeps finding excuses to check on future appointments or go to the lobby to make a phone call. I don't blame her one bit!

More later.

  1. Is it possible for you to sleep all the way through a treatment? or do you need to stay awake for information? If sleeping is allowed then I would stay up REALLY late the night before the treatment and then sleep ALL day during. Then you wouldn't have to figure out how to keep yourself occupied. Although........your snoring may bother the other patients!! :)
