Tysabri Infusion #21 (yawn)

The other day I had my twenty-first infusion of Tysabri and it was, again, another infusion without incident. The most exciting thing that happened for this 2-hour stay was the music played by all of the machines, beeping to let the staff know someone’s time with their drip was up. Beep, beep, beep. Beep, beep, beep.

Infusion without incident? Fine with me!
These monthly rounds are really getting boring and this is fine with me. I’m not looking for a ton of excitement when I’m hanging out in the infusion room, as the big T travels through my veins. It’s a standard, dull routine for me. Insert needle, Tysabri flows, I read a book, I dose off. Beep, beep, beep. Hour one is done. My nurse unhooks the bag, I read a book, I dose off. Beep, beep, beep. Hour two is done. I’m released and head home. Infusion without incident is the way it should flow, with no side effects or unbearable reactions.

The most exciting thing about my treatment thus far is the reason why I signed up for Tysabri in the first place– no new activity revealed on my last MRI, no relapses. Bam!

So, let the T flow. No excitement in the infusion room and no excitement on my MRI results? Perfectly fine with me.

Ciao for now.



  1. I agree - boring is all right plus I have a 90 minute drive each way for the please of my T. I just did #23, and yet to have any problems other than an occasional missed vein. ouch!

    1. Ouch! That's no fun! Glad to hear that your infusions are going well otherwise. Cheers! Christie

  2. I received an infusion today too. This was #57 or #58 and I spent most of my time reading a magazine and reading facebook updates on my phone. I would have to agree with you, boring infusions are good news so no complaints on my end.

    1. Hey Starla. Glad to hear you are having infusions without incident too! Cheers to that! Christie
