Popping Cancer Update: Did you get the number of that truck?

Chemotherapy yesterday was horrific. At least I was mostly in my own home for the side effects. By way of backstory, every night for the last month or so, my temperature has risen to about 100 degrees for no real reason other than that I have cancer. So yesterday I took a nausea drug in the late afternoon that made me kind of loopy but also gave me a general feeling of being unwell. I think once the fever hit, it was all over.

Today I feel kind of normal, but also weak and sore like I had been mugged. Same deal next Wednesday, but with another drug added. Neat.

Thinking of you as you go through this.

So sorry you feel so bad...hang tough. Chemo wont last forever though it may seem like it will. Then, you get to look really tough while your hair grows back...

Struggling through it sucks. You can also hate being strong. It's okay to do that too.

This new drug has fewer of the fancy side effects (ie no rushing to the bathroom or getting rashes or sudden muscle pain).

No, this new drug is a simple one. It tells you it is going to beat you down and it delivers. No bells and whistles.

Yeah. Sucks. :-(
