Chemo cycle 2: Day 1
And so now I have just had my second round of FEC. This one was quite horrible compared to the first. I had what the nurse called a 'grumpy vein' and so the needle thing (I can never remember what it's called, I want to say cathater but I know that's *definitely* not right!) hurt loads going in and when they did the red drug my arm/vein felt really sore so he had to slow it right down. I was in there for nearly 3 hours I think. The only symptoms I got apart from that were the tingly nose when a different drug went in, but it was fine, it passed. But all's well now. I am super tired but to be honest, I was before I went in, so not sure if that's the children or the chemo! Or both? Either way, it's certainly an early night tonight.
