Not Too Shabby

Today Squeaker had her first infusion therapy. (If you have forgotten what infusion is you can read here, here, here and oh yeah here.) And honestly it couldn't have gone much better. Of course she kicked and screamed while they put the IV line in. She hated having the syringe attached to IV line to open up her veins. After about 30 minutes they took off the syringe and put on the IVIG. Squeaker was able to take it at full run which meant that the vial was gone in a mere 2 hours :)

Then a 30 minute saline bag to wash out the line, 30 minutes of observation and off we went.

Talked to our primary care doctor today as well and it looks like we should be able to get infusion moved from Birmingham to Huntsville. That will save 1.5hrs drive each way. Yes I am excited about saving the gas money but not having to wake up at 5:45 to take Squeaker to receive her treatment.
