Chemo 3.1

So I’m now day 2 of round 3 of chemo, and already feeling alot better than yesterday. Although that does not mean that I’m feeling like a barrel of laughs. Yesterday was definitely the roughest day I’ve had on chemo so far, and I particularly feel for Hannah who can only stand by and watch, as there isn’t much she can do, except pour me glasses of warm to hot water when I’m thirsty.

At this stage, I’m still prone to cramping, but have improved, my right arm is no longer sore from the infusion, and my appetite is nil. We have discovered that soup is probably the best food for me over the next few days, its nice and liquidy, warm, and feels more like drinking than eating, so appeals to my zero appetite.

The only other thing that is causing strife, is when I get hiccups. Apparently they are a manifestation of nausea, but when I get them I cant stop hiccuping no matter what i try!!!.. I challenge readers to come up with a solution that works!!!
