Back in the recliner again...

Out where a friend is a friend
Where the lymphoma guys feed
On the lowly rituxan weed
Back in the recliner again

I am finishing up yesterdays infusion. Nurse P expects it to take until 3:30pm or so. I took the ibuprofen last evening, as recommended by Dr. Infekto, and I feel really very well. I have high hopes!

As you may know, I am a cardiac arrhythmia patient and take medication to regulate my heartbeat. As a consequence, my pulse and blood pressure are generally a bit lower than most humans, at least the living ones. The nurses were indeed impressed with this reading, 84/42!


  1. Love the accompanying photos to your medical updates. Especially appreciate knowing that you are still alive at 84/42! Let us know how you are feeling tomorrow morning. Hopefully the two day adventure is the answer to your side affects. Good luck.
    Irene and Len
    P.S. And let us know what you pigged out on!

  2. So happy you have a pulse etc. Hope you feel good for 2 weeks, then the last one and it will all be forgotten in no time as you take your next vac. Love N

  3. Pleeeease gain some weight!!! I don't like that we are still in the same weight class!!!LOL!! Wanna take me on? 84/ you could eat lard right out of the can and be ok/ Hang in there, you're being prayed for everyday!!!
    Lots of love, Louise, AKA Wezzie

  4. I kind of agree with Irene & Len above..... Maybe if they did it in 2 days, you would tolerate it better..... it would be more trouble, but result in less trouble.... (or something like that!)

    It will be awesome when it's over.

    We love you very much and think about you and pray for you every day.

    Love, Meemaw & hubby.
