<p>I'm sitting at the transplant center waiting for my cytogam infusion. Which means sitting on my ass for four hours while meds slowly drip into my veins. My donor, at one time, came in contact with a herpes type virus that lies dormant in their organs. I knew the risks and signed off on taking a possibly infected kidney. The doctors informed me that 8 cytogam infusions would help my body not contract the possible virus (a type of herpes). Today's infusion is number seven, the eighth and final is scheduled for a month from now.
Infusion appointments are long and slow. To complicate matters, i was late to the appointment by 10 minutes, and since the cytogam is made to order here at the hospital I have to always wait up to and hour if I'm late by five or ten minutes.
So here i sit waiting for my meds to arrive.
