Interferon II

My second injection of Interferon was nothing like the first. In fact, I noticed no side effects yesterday (Thursday). Amazing. I am a little more fatigued overall, but I did not run a fever or have the chills that I experienced on Tuesday. My next injection will be Saturday night. For my fellow Westminster Pres-ites, you'll know how I3 fared if you see me at church. :) Though I might feign the "flu" to watch the last stage of the Tour. Nah. I wouldn't do that.

Interferon I

It's 2:00 pm the day after my first Interferon injection, which I gave myself last night around 9:30pm. As is most common, I had a fever and chills, to which I awoke around 3:00 this morning. More Tylenol and I slept in and watched Le Tour de France, Stage 15 on the L'Alpe d'Huez. I came to the office after lunch, and though I feel OK, I can tell my mental capabilities are not firing on all eight cylinders (as you may be able to tell by this rambling, slightly coherent post).

So, I survived the first Interferon injection and it wasn't as bad as I feared. Round 2 Wednesday night.

Dear Boss,

"I think I'm going to have the flu next week."

So might a letter read to my boss as I will begin injecting myself with the flu...I mean, Interferon on Monday. Flu-like symptoms are the most common side effect to new Interferon patients. In a few weeks, I should adapt to the higher doses of this protein, which is naturally produced in our bodies when we have the flu. Until then, I think I'll call in sick. :)

You can pray that I cope well with the side effects. I am usually a lousy sick person, as most men are, and Rachelle doesn't need to deal with 3 kids at once.
