I’m at my bi-monthly infusion for Remicade. Every 8 weeks, I get to take a half day off from work and come to the infusion lab to have an IV inserted into my arm and an Remicade (an immunosuppressant) pumped into my veins for 2.5 hours. And, yes, that is totally as fun as it sounds.
The truth is, I don’t mind it all that much. Of all the medical appointments and procedures I get to endure, it’s actually one of the most pleasant – if you can actually find a medical procedure pleasant. I get to sit in a comfy chair and catch up on e-mails and Facebook with my laptop (yay free wi-fi!) The nurses in my small infusion center are nice and friendly, and after a year and a half, I’ve gotten very comfortable here.
Occasionally, I luck out and a random, handsome fellow is here getting an infusion at the same time. Today is one of those days. Across from me is the most adorable Scottish man, with the best accent.
It may not be the best place to have to be, but sometimes, you just can’t beat the view.
