Virus vs Chemo

I have been struggling for over a week with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.  In my mind I was assuming it was all related to chemo.  I went to Highlands yesterday for IV fluids.  Today I'm in the ER waiting to be seen.  The ER waiting room was full and when I told the receptionist I was on chemo, she gave me my own private waiting room.  That proves there are advantages of having chemo.  Tony and I were grateful not to be among all the flu and other illnesses going on in the main waiting area.  We were put into a regular ER room within a very short amount of time.  Now the waiting begins to see how long and what they find out.

Within 1 hour of walking into the ER I was hooked up to IV fluids.  I am being admitted into the hospital and will probably go home tomorrow.  I was told my Magnesium was low and that I needed fluids to rehydrate.  I am thankful to have a husband watching over me and made me get some medical attention.  I was willing to wait it out another day, but he knew better.  I am blessed!

"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
