start of treatment postponed

The Hickman catheter was inserted below my right collarbone this afternoon in about the same area as my previous one. My appointment was for 11:00 am, but I didn't enter the room where the procedure took place until about 1:30. Their explanation for why we waited so long is because all the operating rooms were in use. We left at about 3:40 for the inpatient infusion clinic for treatment, but the clinic closes at around 6 which was bad news for me since my infusion is so long. The SGN-30 itself takes 2 hours to infuse. Together, all the agents make the infusion visit about a 4 hour experience. Consequently, the start of my treatment was postponed until tomorrow morning.

This was disappointing. I'm glad, however, that treatment can commence tomorrow.
