Chemo Sucks

It's Thursday. The chemo infusion was removed yesterday morning. I've been sick since Tuesday night. I have that wonderful combination of nausea and diarhea. I've lost 10 pounds in two days. I'm sure it'll all come back once I've rehydrated, but man, I hate this feeling. It's that shaky in the hands, wobbly knees thing. Right now I'm in the office working, trying to choke down enough animal crackers to get rid of the shakes and drinking a lot of water.

This too shall pass.

Back on Chemo

Started back on the chemo (FOLFOX) yesterday. The cold sensitivity came back almost immediately. I can't touch or drink anything colder than about room temperature. If I touch a can of pop, my finger tips immediately feel like they're asleep. If I'm stupid enough to hold on to it, the feeling intensifies until it's almost electric shock intense. Really sucks for somebody who likes beer the way I like beer :)

The chemo will be administered every other week for the next 24 weeks, shouldn't be too horrible, at least I'm past the surgeries and everything is healing fine as far as that goes.
