1. 2. 3. 4. DONE.

Infusion #3 took 5.5 hours and overall went well. My IV backed up a few times, which didn't cause a problem, although it was unsettling to look at the line and see blood. I didn't have a reaction during the treatment, and I was awake enough toward the end that I watched a movie with my nephew. It was good to laugh! Post-infusion was much the same: a red, puffy face and a headache. This time I needed two days home afterward, as I was completely exhausted.

Infusion #4 took 5.5 hours and got off to a rocky start when the nurse couldn't get the IV line started. There were two failed and painful attempts before a different nurse intervened. Ouch. Once the line started there were no issues. I didn't have a headache this time (yeah!) but did get the red/flushed face.

Overall, I'm glad the treatments are done. I'm bruised and tired but completely relieved to have this step completed.
