Well Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I go in to the hospital for the last round of IVIG treatments. Wish me luck because if these don't prove to have worked when they do the muscle tests then insurance won't pay for any more. So far I haven't been able to tell any difference but I know I need to be patient as it will take it a while to work as I have had this for such a long time. The 3 days in the hospital are long, boring and tough and I will be glad when they are over with. Wish me luck and keep me in your thoughts.

Warm hugs,

Good luck to you and you ARE in my thoughts.....It's no fun being in the hospital at all. They never let you get any sleep! :angry:

Do take care and try not to get too bored - take a good book - take a laptop and write to us!

Love ya,

I'll be thinking of you! What is the criteria for continuing the treatments? The only thing my insurance requires is the CPK results. I hope whatever the criteria is, that it does show improvements. Have you felt any improvements in your fatigue or stamina? IVIg really helps me in those areas. I'm usually rundown a couple of days before and after the treatments, then perk right back up.

My fingers are crossed!
