Now I Have OverCome Chemo #5 and Lived To Smile Again

From the beginning I have described how chemotherapy has affected my body, my mental status, and my ability to endure dark, hard challenges one must face when put to the task.  Survival was not a given, not even expected…yet in spite of all the torment, the torture, the agony…God has sustained me.

Pressing Forward: I have overcome 4 Aggressive Chemo Infusions.

I remember writing that each one is different.  This was #4, and as we move forward, there are things that transpire at one time, that do not follow the same timeline, so as I report the things that I endured through this infusion, I have to also disclose that, the week prior to the infusion, I went to Palliative  Care, after seeing my PCP, PA, who informed me that this would be where I could learn to endure some of the side effect that kept me from eating, that affected my constant diarrhea, that kept me dehydrated, where I needed to go in for IV fluids just to keep me from succumbing to the devastating, bedridden lifestyle of which I was growing accustomed.
