Day 4 chemo update

Howdy all,

Today I woke up feeling … rough.  Not terrible, but rough.  My first thought was that I was going to have to be sick, but I wasn’t – so that’s good I suppose.  I slept 10 hours last night, but still woke up feeling unrested.  Bleh.

I’m in the chair now, and I’m not sure if they’ve got me on the Cisplatin or Etoposide first today.  So far, each day has been just a little bit faster than the day before, and I’m hoping today is similar.  They’ve got me sped up a little to 1250 ml/hour on the double pump today, so maybe I’ll get out of here 9.2% faster.

Right now, I can’t think of what else to write.

Well, today is nearly done – I’m on my last 10 minutes of Cisplatin now.  Dr. Birchfield came by for a visit today and met Sharon for the first time.  She was out of town with her brother when I met him initially.  Just a quick chat – we’ve got an appt. next week.

They’re getting prepared to flush the port now, so I’ve got to put the laptop down.  Mostly today has just been tired, feeling a little worse than yesterday and tired of it all, already.  With any luck, it’ll be easier next week, when I don’t have to come in every day.
