Today was a bad day. Things felt good after getting up and having breakfast. After breakfast Den drove me to the local Cancer Treatment center. Shortly after the infusion of the pre-meds I become overcome with spasms (sudden involuntary contraction of a group of muscles). In my case the locations were top of my arms. Sometimes the spasms lasted up to 2 minutes.
Sine this is the first time that the nurses and my doctor have encountered this issue, and the chemo infusion has started, the suggestion was to administer a muscle relaxer and lay me down on the overnight bed. Since the center has no muscle relaxer meds, Dianne rush home to get some that were left over the our first treatment. Keeping it short, it worked, I dozed of for a while and when I woke up the spasms had stopped. My treatment ended at a bit after 5:00 PM.
After getting home, I rested for the rest of the day, dozing of many times.
That is it for today. In summary, today was a bad day.
