Pretty rough day.

Well, it got on the road at 7:45 and go to the Cleveland Clinic for my 9:00 training that didn't start till 10:00 but it went really fast since I knew the basic of wound care etc. I have to change the dressing and flush the lines out everyday. No biggy. They go me all hooked up with the chemo around 11:00 and I finished up at 6:00. Drove home and as soon as I got in the door I was throwing up. This went on for about 4 hours and some nasty cold, bone shaking chills. That only lasted while I was throwing up. As soon as I layed back down, things were fine. I did get to sleep and right now I feel a bit tired which is part of it. No more chemo until I'm admitted. I think I'm going to start getting large doses of antibiotics. Currently have a nasty taste in my mouth that I've been trying to get rid of. I will start giving myself injections of the Neuprogen on Thursday and I start taking Cipro an antibiotic by mouth this evening. They said if I were to spike a temp of 100.5 I would have to be admitted.

So, today is just a day of rest with nothing planned. I going to change my dressing, get a shower and work this nasty taste out of my mouth.

Thanks for all the comments you've been posting. They make me feel good and cheer me up.
