Experiencing a Hick-Up

Day 1 of post Chemo round 1 and things could be worse.

I had to go back this morning to the hospital to have the IV bottle of bleomycin taken out.  Right after that: Bed!  Today has been like having the flu, which as things go, is me getting off pretty easy I think.  The nausea for the most part has been controlled by the meds but the fatigue has been a real ass kicker.  The biggest complaint that I can make is the hick-ups!  Most of last night I was kept up again by violent hick-ups about every 3 to 5 seconds.  As I've mentioned this is a side effect of the bleomycin chemo drug that they send me home with.  I did learn today that they have a medication that will counteract it and hopefully I'll get some for the next round.

I wish I had more to say today but all I want to do is sleep.  So at this point so I will say thanks for all the notes of encouragement, it is always uplifting to know so many of you are out there supporting me.  As always Love you All!
