Hi everyone!  Well I had my first infusion this morning and so far no major problems. The nurse only had to stick me twice.  I have a bit of a headache and I am tired, but that probably has more to do with the fact that I could not sleep last night.  I will let you all know how it is going in a few days.

Barb,
 
Glad it went well, and they only had to stick you twice.  Hope you get some much needed rest tonight.

Hi everyone!  It's been 8 days since my first infusion, and I am feeling as though I am experiencing less fatigue.  I drove home to Ohio for the holidays a few days ago, and stayed out last night at a restaurant/bar/casino until 10:30.  I know that sounds lame, but I have been going to bed at 9:00 at the latest. I am also sleeping a little better. Occasional muscle spasms continue in left leg and my back also hurts -- particularly later in the day. 
 
I hope everyone has a good holiday and I will see you all in "chat" in a few weeks.
