Infusion #10 Going In

I took Enbrel for 5ish years & Humira for 3ish years. (Don’t you just love my accuracy there ?). Well, never in those 8ish years did I ever get over the fact that I had to give myself a shot every week, in my thighs, that were very knotted from years of medicine. I still don’t like needles but I’m all in favor of my 8 week needle! It contains the necter of the Entivyo gods & man-o-man is it some amazing stuff!

Today is infusion #10! I fee like I’ve hit some kind of milestone. I’ve been on E for 419 days, but who’s counting. Last year at this time I was having my last loading dose & wondering if this drug could be my miracle or if it was just another step towards eliminating all my options before I had to have the ultimate option of colon removal. 


I’m beyond happy to report, typically every 8 weeks when I infuse, that I feel amazing! Someone who’s just met me might even think I was normal! Don’t be fooled though, it’s always in the back of my mind & I pray that it stays in the back where it belongs!

This time of year, thankfulness & blessings are on the forefront of our minds. I am beyond thankful for my infusion center, Texas Oncology, they are amazing everytime I come in. Everything always runs smoothly & they know me by name now. 

Today, the other patients & I were serenaded by carollers in the infusion room. Christmas is still about Christ no matter what the liberals try to push on America & they sang all my favorites. Away In a Manger, Joy to the World, We Wish You a Merry Christmas & of course Silent Night. Christmas is my favorite time of year!!!

If you’re still reading because my Christmas beliefs haven’t driven you away, have a very magical Christmas season & a happy New Year! I will be saying extra thank you prayers for another holiday season with my trusty old colon!

?? MERRY CHRISTMAS! ??
