Second at-home denosumab injection

Today was the second denosumab at home day and I'm pleased to report that there were no problems with the home care nurse today. Well, except that she wore some kind of perfume or scent which is something I don't like and think should be banned, just as the wearing of perfumes or scents is banned in hospitals - but that's a post for another day.

The nurse called last night to determine what time this morning she was to come and while she showed up a half-hour late, she showed up. She even called before she appeared at the door to confirm the address because the address on my file was wrong. That address has been changed twice with the home care nurse people but the change doesn't seem to have stuck.

The nurse didn't do the injection: Ian did it under the nurse's direction. He did a fantastic job! The needle didn't hurt at all going in and the injection itself didn't hurt, either. When nurses do the injection it always hurts because they push the fluid in too quickly but Ian was able to go slowly enough that it didn't hurt. I was very impressed. I think Ian is going to do a great job at injecting my denosumab into me.
