Cycle 2 Treatment Complete… with another trip to the ER

5/31/15 – I received my chemo treatments for cycle 2 on May 26 – 28. For some reason at the end of my last day of chemo, and a couple of days that follow, I get the feeling of being bloated. This leads to a loss of appetite and feeling nauseous.
On May 29th I worked from home. Although I felt good throughout the day, I was pretty exhausted at the end of the day and continued to feel bloated and have a loss of appetite.
On Saturday morning, May 30th I had to be back at the cancer center for my Neulasta shot. After I received my shot my wife and I figured we were so close to her sister’s house that we would pick up coffee and donuts and stop by for a visit. Unfortunately this plan didn’t go so well. While we were standing outside saying hello I felt weak and I passed out. Before I knew what was happening an ambulance showed up and I was on my way back to the hospital. After a few hours of receiving fluids and being checked out in the Emergency Room I was released. It seems that this latest passing out episode was due to dehydration. I need to do a better job at keeping my nourishment up. No matter how the chemo makes me feel I need to drink plenty of water and make sure I keep up my strength.
There is no doubt that I have a knack to keep things interesting. 
But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”John 4:14
More to come…
