~ chemo day 1…I spoke too soon…

Yesterday I was feeling okay and that changed quickly. I was resting on the sofa when nausea set it in pretty hard. I went into my kitchen for a drink of water I recall looking at the clock, it was 3:47 and next thing I know I am on the kitchen floor with Vodka meowing at me. Feeling very nauseated I made it the bathroom and realized I needed my phones so I crawled into the living room to retrieve the phones and back to the bathroom. Nausea was setting in hard and fast, I began to sweat profusely. I called Jenny at 4:00 and kept her on the line while I called 911, the cancer centre and my neighbour to come over. The vomiting began and didn’t end until midnight. Ashley and Emma arrived at my house to help. We prepared to go emergency. 90 minutes later the ambulance arrived. My first ambulance ride and I was in no mood for bad jokes. 

We arrived at the hospital only to wait in the hallway for about 2.5-3 hours. When I finally got a bed they did an ECG and. CT scan of my head. I received fluids by IV and more anti nausea meds, which didn’t seem to help. After midnight I received 5 stitches in my head and was released. Finally! By this time I was so drained and exhausted. My friends stayed the night with me and I managed to sleep for a few hours. 

I sparkle on…one day at a time.  ðŸ™‚
