Susannah Cahalan Quotes: On April 2 The Nurses Started My First

On April 2, The Nurses Started My First Round Of Five Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) Infusions. The Clear IV Bags Hung On A Metal Pole Above My Head, Their Liquid Trickling Down Into My Vein. Each Of Those Ordinary-looking Bags Contained The Healthy Antibodies Of Over A Thousand Blood Donors And Cost Upwards Of $20,000 Per Infusion. One Thousand Tourniquets, One Thousand Nurses, One Thousand Veins, One Thousand Blood-sugar Regulating Cookies, All Just To Help One Patient.
