1st Cycle ICE chemo

Ugh, that wasn't much fun.  This new chemo is 3-days in a row of treatment and it's clear that it's going to be a bit rougher than last chemo. First day wasn't bad, 3 hours of just the "E" and then I got to go home.

The next 2 days though, not so much fun. Went into the hospital and 9AM on Tues and started chemo around 11AM which continued until 10PM on Weds. Tuesday wasn't too bad as it really wasn't hitting me yet, just the expected boredom of being confined to the hospital room all day. I was even able to get quite a bit of work done.

Weds was a different story. Had my first official chemo puke at about 4 in the morning and I was feeling like I usually felt 2 days after getting the ABVD chemo...DONE.  I didn't throw up anymore but felt sick all day and not very hungry. Mostly just slept.

Originally I had big plans of working Thurs and Fri but no way that was happening. I did a little work remotely today but still feel awful. Need to get in for at least a little bit tomorrow though.
