Since my first infusion, I have literally felt a little bit better every day. I've been getting back into my workouts and going on weekend hikes. My appetite is back with a vengeance. I had lost down from about 195-200 lbs to 180-185, and now I am back around 190, which is pretty ideal weight for me. I have found that when I am on steroids, things are more intense. Also, I eat like I've never eaten before in my life!
Prior to my first. infusion, I was really sick. Flu like symptoms at night with a dry cough that turned into soaking night sweats every night. So, I was about as weak as I've ever been going into my first infusion. My second infusion, however, I went in about as strong as I've been in a long time. I kicked its butt. I literally had zero side effects. It was like nothing had happened to me. The steroids had a similar effect, only this time my appetite was unlike anything I've ever experienced.
Wendy and I took off the next day to Charleston / Folly Beach and had a really good time. We met up with our friends Dave and Carolyn on Saturday, but Thursday and Friday it was just us. We had a fabulous dinner Friday night at the Bennett Hotel. Thursday, we made it just in time for the world's best burger at Rita's on Folly Beach. Like I said, I ate more than I've ever eaten in my life without question, and I never felt full. By the time we got home, I had no eyebrows. They said it would happen right about now, and it sure did.
