He left and made all the orders for the day. Pre meds came and by 10:30 am started chemo. Cytoxan and they had to give me sodium phosphate also (runs 6 hrs) because it was too low on my blood work. The other day it was pottasium. By 1 pm the ATG (56.6,250ml) which runs for 10 hrs. I've been 3 days on the same chemo regimen.
I just feel a little tired at times,so I dont do much. I did go for a walk around the floor and a short bike ride.
Of course I ve got to take the IV pump, mask and gloves along. Just a little exercise helps a lot. My mom brings me gatorade and bottle water everyday (Im kind of picky when it comes to water...lol) and one of the nurses was telling me that it was a great idea since Gatorade helps to recuperate the electrolytes Im losing or they will have to give it to me in IV. And I dont need one more bag of IV medicine...LOL
I'm also drinking a lot of prune juice instead of having them to give me a medicine for that too. If you know what I mean...lol The more natural the way, the best...!
I like the way they have set the food times, they give you a menu and whenever you feel hungry you call them and they bring you the food fresh within an hour. If I dont call after a certain time, they call me to remind me. Sometimes I just dont feel like eating, I have that metal taste in my mouth and nothing tastes good anymore.
Plus the first day they give you a special mouthwash that you have to rinse with 5 times a day at least, made of salt and soda, so it has no taste either...lol
