Update 12/4/09 H1N1 vaccine

December 4, 2009 at 10:48 am

I’m still battling back from the Cellcept set back, but things continue getting better.

I took the H1N1 swine flu vaccine yesterday. I had a slight headache and felt warm yesterday, but that’s all except a sore shoulder.

I had another PE last week. I’m scheduled for another on 12/11/09. Plasma Exchanges (Pheresis) are doing wonders for me. The longest I’ve been able to go between PEs are 5 weeks so far. It’s too bad I haven’t tolerated the immunosuppresants so far, because I would like to extend out that time dramatically, but initially I was getting PE’s ever two weeks so I feel blessed that I’ve made it to 5. My goal is to get back to 5 and try for 6 weeks as soon as I’m completely over the cellcept.

I pray a wonderful Christmas for you all and a CIDP/GBS free 2010.
