I was schedule to start melphalan at 8:00pm, Tuesday May 29th. At 7:00 they started a fast IV drip with normal saline. At 7:45 I was handed three cups of ice chips . Instructed to eat the first cup by 8:00; the second cup while receiving chemo and the last after I was done, for 15 minutes. Was surprised nurse used a syringe to push the melphalan. It took 10 minutes to get all of the melphalan in. Now there is no going back.
