[cancer] Off to infusion center

Well, as of last night, I had diarrhea for eleven days, strained abdominal muscles from the violent cramping, a cold for four days, chills, a 100.5 fever and serious food aversions. They still wanted me to come into the chemo infusion center.

This morning, I've slept 11 hours, the fever has broken, the cold seems to be either on its way out or gone, taking the chills with it, and though I still have the diarrhea, I made it almost eight hours last night without cramps or a bowel movement, which is the longest I've gone (or haven't gone, as it were) since a week ago Sunday.

I have leveled up and merely feel like crap, as opposed to the dreadfulness that was yesterday.

Amazing what a good night's sleep will do.

At any rate, off to the infusion center shortly. See you all on the other side.
