My Remicade infusion went well. For those who have asked, an infusion is when the medicine is given to you intravenously, in an IV bag. I go every 4 weeks, sometimes I have to wait to the 5th week because of scheduling.
No problems getting my blood or getting the IV in which is always nice! :-D
I had my rheumatologist appointment afterward and my lab work was already done! My sugar was only 87! YAY!
Here is the funny thing, my MD forgot she even yelled at me! @@ But, she is happy she did and that I am watching my sugars and carbs and that I am losing weight.
My liver enzymes were good and my white blood cells, too. So, all in all, I am apparently perfect! ha-ha! I am very happy though, and aside from some normal aches and pains with the RA, I haven't flared in a while so this is good.
I am going to try to lower my Methotrexate dosage a bit over the next two months. I will see my doc again in the end of September.
The big news from yesterday is that there were more bombs in London! My heart goes out to all those injured and to all Londoners. This is not easy to deal with. It also scares the heck out of me that some psycho is going to start doing this over here in NYC.
Well, that is my quick update for this morning... I will have another entry later, I think! I tried to put this on last nite but AOL was acting kooky!
