Monday at Vanderbilt (Updated 7:40 AM Tuesday)

We arrived at the hospital about 7:30 AM. By the time we parked and walked to admissions, it was about 8:00 AM. They took me back around 8:15 and my procedure began about 9:00 AM.

The central IV line is in and doing well. They used conscious sedation--I flew around the room three times while they worked on me.

We finally made it to hospital admissions around noon. Dr. Lee stopped by and we talked a little, more about that tomorrow. I have have a team of neurologist checking me while I am here. We had a long wait for a private room, but it is worth it. While waiting for a room, the plasmapheresis unit wanted to me come to start treatment at 4:30 PM. Everything went well and I finally made it to my room at 9:30 PM. Cathy and I are both tired. By the way, only three safari porters fainted from the working of bringing Cathy's stuff to the room.

Here is a video blog I did a video early Tuesday morning...if I look tired, I am.
