Why does everything sound really bad?

Cytomegalovirus (CMV).

That’s what I was given by the donated liver, which normally is like who cares; but as I am now immuno-challenged, I have awaken the dormant virus from my new liver. I guess there’s always a catch right? Nothing is free these days. Well, I guess that doesn’t really work either, this whole things isn’t free – and I guess I owe a big thank you to my employer.

Any way, I guess that CMV can be really bad if left unchecked, so it’s a good thing that the numbers are really low, and that my coordinator says that it isn’t a big deal, or the end of the world. Things have been going so well, that I guess I really should have expected a couple speed-bumps.

The thing that I am being treated with is an Eclipse Infuser, and it’s pretty slick. It’s a self contained rubber ball of juice, that is designed and measured to flow at a specific rate, and this one (about the size of racquetball) works on the Lens Crafters paradigm – In about an hour. So now with this latest addition, I have this fun little routine in the morning and night. I take my morning meds at 8am, hook up my racquetball med deliver system at 9am until 10am, then I take more meds when this thing is done. w00t! w00t!

I am told I can expect to have the PICC Line in for at least 2 weeks, and that means I get to see Kelly (the home nurse) a couple times a week for a while. At least this thing is easy to use, and I don’t have to be stuck in Pittsburgh while I get this sorted out. I mean the folks on the 12th floor are great and all, but it’s not my preferred residence.
