the queasies

Well-I had my 3rd round of carboplatin and boy did I get queasy.
I haven’t tossed my biscuits, but I completely lost my appetite for a few days.
This was very upsetting to my pawparents. Mom over-reacted and I spent the day at my vet getting fluids. The heat didn’t help either. It took me 3 days to get my appetite back. In the meantime, I have been eating rice and chicken (hand fed of course). Not bad, tonight I had steak-much better and I ate all by myself. I am switching to a new chemo in a few weeks and I hope that I tolerate it better. Overall, I am enjoying life and having a great summer.

    Oh, that darn queasiness and loss of appetite. Catie had that with each chemo treatment and I totally understand your mom’s concern.

    Happy to hear you’re still able to enjoy your summer though.
