Today is Neupogen day 1.
This morning Kathleen and I drove to Miami so I could get my first Neupogen injection. It is given subcutaneously, and stings some during the injection. Since this was my first experience with Neupogen, the nurse, Vibeka, asked that I stay for a half-hour to make sure there were no immediate side effects. There was also another blood draw because there was apparently some confusion over the proper form required to test for infectious disease markers. That was quickly resolved this morning so the test will be run.
After that, Kathleen and I drove up to Boca Raton to attend our usual Sunday service. A little shopping on the way home and a small nap and all is good. No untoward effects.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing.
