Day 5 - Start Neupogen
In term of other side effects from the chemo and other drugs, Chris has been doing relatively well. He has some mild nausea, heartburn and a few headaches. However, what seems to be bugging him the most are the chronic hiccups he seems to have. At least 30 times today Chris has had to fight hiccup attacks that DO NOT want to go away. We have been brainstorming different remedies: holding your breath, controlling your breathing, plugging your ears (don't laugh, apparently it is reccomended by doctors!) and Chris even tried lying his head down on kitchen counter in the dark (the surprising cure).
