I was sitting in a hospital chair receiving one of many chemo infusions. I was pleasantly surprised at how UNsick I felt and when it was time for my next infusion, I thought, “I really don’t know what all the hullabalu is about. This is a piece of cake.”
It seemed like instantly, it was time for my next infusion. For some reason, it wasn’t chemo this time. It was radiation. In an IV port? Um, okay. I accepted the drug, high on my horse about the fact that I will feel awesome when this is all done.
The nurse gave me 12 chewable disks that looked and tasted like chocolate Necco Wafers.
Ohhh….candy too! I chowed them and started to stand up. The nurse advised me to sit down because I was going to feel sick soon. I read the wrapper of the candy-like discs. ”Indications: To treat extreme nausea and vomiting after chemotherapy. Adults: 9 disks”
WTF? I looked at the nurse and felt the blood drain out of my face.
So, I am going to feel really crappy really soon, huh? I mean, the fact that you are giving me these is enough but the dosage is 9 and you gave me 12.
She nodded. She added that there are sleeping aids in the discs too so that hopefully I will sleep off the nasty effects I am about to experience.
My fire pager went off for a call near my house. I started to wake up and realize HOLY CRAP. THAT WAS ONE CRAZY DREAM!!! But when I tried to get out of bed to get dressed for the call, I felt so tired…as if I was drugged. I remembered the Necco Wafers and told myself I shouldn’t go on this call so I went back to sleep.
The pager went off again and this time, I realized that even the Necco Wafers was a dream. I got dressed and went to the scene but I still couldn’t shake the feeling of being drugged.
Yea….I am really looking forward to my upcoming MRI and I am not sure I will want Necco Wafers for a while!!!
