Wellllll....one down eleven to go!
Im doing okay. I asked the nurse how quickly the side effects happen, and she said tomorrow at the soonest- she kinda forgot about the cold water thing.
Soooo...I was sipping on cold water- and my throat started feeling tight. They immediately pushed some benedryl into me, better safe than sorry. Boy-howdy did it leave me lightheaded, nearly passed out. But it seemed to work.
Im home now, with my pump on. Im feeling a bit drained and tired. I pee'd 5 times in two hours during the infusion, and two more times at home. My body is not used to this much water. Lets hope it learns soon.
We went for a walk around our property and watched the dog herd the goats into the pen, that always makes me smile
My husband bought me a gift when I got out the hospital to make me smile- hopefully next infusion Ill be driving my lil 46 Dodge Truck (it needs brake cylinders right now) to and from appointments https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/- ... directlink
