Round 2, Day 4 … saline drip

Nausea and diarrhea is a helluva start to a day, throw in chemo fatigue and I am left wondering why am I doing this?

Wiser in Round 2, fortunately we had arranged a saline drip for 1100, Day 4. … During Round 1, never even knew such an option existed until Day 7.

Saline drips are all about restoring body fluids and electrolytes.

To me however any and all time in the chemo lounge is time with people like me. Chemotherapy is so much more than the fatigue and discomfort of symptoms … it is about fear and hope … and only in a chemo lounge can I find fellow travelers on the edge of life.
