Transplant chemo was a foggy time

I don't even remember a lot about those four days. It was not a pleasant time. They used three chemotherapy drugs and you get 10-20 times the normal dose, and it's a continuous dose for four days. I was absolutely terrified of this high dose chemotherapy, very frightened of, you know, nausea, on vomiting. They have drugs to control those side effects that were much stronger than anything I had been given going through standard chemotherapy. One of the drugs, not only does it control the nausea and vomiting, but it makes you very sleepy. And I was on that almost continuously. It was a foggy time.
