the day chemotherapy started

AM:
I woke up as usual from a good sleep. (Maybe from the sedative they gave me last night). Today the chemotherapy will start. At 715am, the nurse gave an injection of anti-emetic half an hour before infusing the chemotherapy agent.
The chemotherapy regime will be four times a day for four consecutive days. Each dosage will start at 800am and subsequent will be every six hours apart. Each dosage will take about two hours to finish before the next dosage follows.
So far, I don't have much problem. The literature tells everything. May be too early to say. Anyway my hematologist keep telling me, be positive and hold strong.
Thank God, my laptop was back to normal. I was almost really upset since last night when the laptop didn't want to work..for no reason.
PM:
After the second dose, I started to feel hot flush and the dizziness and imbalance started to be more pronounced. So, I spend most of the time in the bed. Anyway, I still able to have my shower independently and performed every 'solat'. My appetite is still doing good.
Every night, before sleep, I ll do my blog entry and reading through all the comments make me feel that I have a lot of people around watching and concerned about me. Thanks everyone.......

Dear Wolf,

It was good to chat with you this morning. It is good to know what is going on with you inside. This will benefit if I share to my patient who have chance for BMT.

It is look like you have more people in your fan club.

You can do it, Wolf, I will keep praying for you.
