Today brings my first visit to Hopkins on the business end of a drug trial. My Mum and Dad came up to Baltimore with me.
The visit began with a quick barrage of tests (strength, breathing, EKG, and vitals) before we finally got to open the drug packaging. I have an equal chance of getting a placebo, low dosage, medium dosage, or high dosage of the drug.
I remained in the hospital for six hours in order to draw blood at regular intervals, and repeat some tests. As boring as the wait was, at least the view was decent!
