Rituxan Infusion Day One

After spending the morning and a couple of afternoon hours hooked up to the first of my semi-annual-two-day Rituxan infusion, meant to kill "B cells" and to hamper my immune system in its quest to fight--not bad germs and such, but--me. Despite my mother's repeated urging to go to bed for the rest of the day, I feel fine. Rested. (It did involve sitting on my butt for many hours of inactivity.) 

I feel fine enough that I really did mean to go out and mow the lawn when I got home. Hey--there are steroids involved! But then "when I got home" became "after I do a bit of painting," and, well, now I have to get some supper before going out to a Library Board meeting. 

Maybe I'll mow tomorrow.

Here's wishing that fewer B cells turn around my Sjogren's Syndrome. Or forestall some developments. At least a little bit.
