I got my car, with the intake valve repaired ($327, ouch) and drove home on Monday. I was supposed to have chemo for my rheumatoid arthritis Monday, but was able to delay that until Tuesday. So Tuesday morning I had the Rituxan. I arrived at 9 and didn't leave until 2. Because I got hives with the last infusion, I was given double Benedryl along with a regular dose of Medrol (a prednisone) before the infusion began. I fell asleep somewhere around 11. When I woke up at 2, I was surprised to see that the nurse had removed my IV around 1, but she left me there to sleep. I won't have to go for another dose for four to six months.
I had a hair appointment at 2:15 and arrived a little late. My face was pale white and I was a little cloudy and shaky. I went home and layed in the recliner for the afternoon, getting up to cook some dinner. I knocked over a box of corn starch and it went all over the floor. A little hand vac got most of it up. Then I spilled cuscus all over the floor. David helped me out with that mess and finished cleaning up the corn starch too. I cooked a chicken, cuscus with garlic and olive oil, and green beans. David made some brownies for dessert.
