First Infusion

I was so proud of my boy today. He did fabulous. He handles so much with such grace and maturity. We met a nurse from the infusion company in Dr. P's office. He went over some paperwork with me and we began preparing the pump, tubing and needles. Luckily it was all pretty familiar to me after years of doing IV meds and SQ shots. Alex gets infused through 2 needles a few inches apart. The first one went in and he barely felt it. The second was quite a bit more painful. When we started the infusion the second site continued to be painful. We stopped the infusion and with Dr. P's approval only infused through the first site. The infusion took about an hour and fifteen minutes. Alex was fine. He had some swelling and redness at the site that was to be expected. Otherwise we have had absolutely no problems. We are spending the night in Houston just to be safe and plan on heading home tomorrow morning.
Thank you to everyone who prayed for us this week. We love you guys.
