My Tysabri Diary...,

Hi everyone, I completed my 65th Tysabri infusion on Tuesday, and everything went well.

My regular infusion nurse who had been out on sick leave was back, and she got me on the first stick, yaaay!

I'm still a little tired from my infusion, so I'll make this post short..., have a great weekend everyone...,


Love, Lauren :)

My Tysabri Diary...

Hi everyone, I received my 64th Tysabri infusion on Tuesday and all went well, with the exception of my regular infusion nurse being out on sick leave, and with a new infusion nurse (who usually works in the chemo department of Kaiser), and even though she is certified to infuse Tysabri, I basically had to educate her about Tysabri (sheesh).

There is a really nice lady that comes in for an infusion of her rheumatoid arthritis medication on the same day I receive my Tysabri, and we always visit. She is the caregiver of her sister who is in a really bad situation, and I found out on Tuesday that hospice has been called in and she has only being given a couple of months to live (it's so sad). I told the lady that I would keep her and her sister in my prayers.

I had a recent MRI of the brain, and my doctor advises me that I have no new active lesions, woo hoo!
Have a very happy upcoming Labor Day holiday...

Anyway, I'm going to have an early lunch today and then take a power nap (heehee).

Take care everyone...,


Love, Lauren :)
