That was the platelet count, a nice climb, likely all from the Ivig 5 days earlier, so it is still getting the job done, though with rapidly diminishing potency and duration of action.

The cyclosporin wouldn't likely have worked this quickly.

The rituximab infusion today was a non-event, but I have the hiccups. BP is till OK, but lymphocytes may be climbing slowly. The steroids in the premeds are keeping me up.

Stay the new course I say. May tweak the IVig- higher dose, different brand.

I am more optimistic, but I have a big lecture on gout to give in Las Vegas, and that will be my focus for the next two days.

That and being there for two friends heading to transplant before the end of the month.

I now have some breathing room again.

Glad to hear that you are doing better. Keep up the positive thinking as it will help get you through this whole thing.

May our Father above bless you and keep you safe and away from this horrible disease.

Blessing on this beautiful day.
