All is well

Well it went just fine – the IVIg arrived 5 minutes before the nurse this morning and we started premedicating at 8:30. I got 45g in 450mL and it really did only take 3 hours. We started at 60mL/hour and increased by 30mL every 15 minutes until we got to 200mL/hour. I was absolutely fine through the whole thing although it was interesting to watch my blood pressure and temperature go up and down. I would have slowed it down at the slightest twinge of a headache or uncomfortable feeling but honestly I felt nothing except groggy from the Benedryl. I’m still groggy from the Benedryl and will probably crash very soon but I am SO HAPPY that it worked out and I wanted to thank each of you that responded to my panic post – I really needed a little sanity and once again you all came through for me. Whew! Two more days but I’m not worried about it anymore – I’m sending the hubby back to work tomorrow and going it alone.

Thanks again ya’ll – goodnight!
