I was given pre-meds then my nurse started the ATG infusion at around 5 PM. She also kept watched every 15 minutes for an hour. I am so glad I did ok with the first ATG infusion. About an hour or two to the treatment, I started having a slight headache but it died down.
ATG infusion was finished at around 11:30 PM. Boy I was so tired, but sleeping in a hospital is not the most restful. I didn't get a decent sleep. Perhaps my body is still adjusting to my new environment in addition to the hot flashes I experienced last night. Nurse told me the hot flashes are common reaction to the ATG treatment.
We're now on Day -8.
As for those asking where to send cards or care packages, here's my address. I would love to hear from you.
