Six months have passed since my last dose of Ocrevus, these infusions a strange new way of marking time, leaving me to wonder at how quickly it passes. I arrived at the infusion center at 9 and am currently hooked up, binge watching Masterpiece Theater’s production of Les Miserables.
I’m here on my own today. It was time for it. My mom helped me get through the first three infusions, navigating the unknowns with me and keeping me entertained. Now that I know what to expect, I’m able to do it myself. When the pharmacist came by to introduce himself as my “bartender for the day,” as he always does, I missed her replying, “I’ll take a Bloody Mary, please.” This time, I just smiled and went back to my show.
I’m buzzy from the steroids, a little lightheaded from the Benadryl, but all is well. Time for lunch. ❤️
