Infusion Today

We are at the hospital today getting our first Rituxan infusion.  We got here at 9:30 this morning.  It was a rough IV start.  Had to get poked twice.  Well, really 5 times not because if you count the J-tip's and the "woops we forgot to get labs" surprise poke : ( .
  Took awhile for them to get everything straight.  It usually does.  I love it when they apologize.  I finally said but kindly said, "oh come on, this is standard procedure."  They had him down to get cytoxan.  Took a good three hours to get all that worked out.  We come back in two weeks for the next dose which will be an overnight.   My Prince sleeps once again, in a cloud of benadryl.
