    Was told to act quickly...do not be a hero. Also was told of all the complications that could arise.. Honestly I really wasnt being a hero I was trying to hide being a chicken. I love you guys...thanks for letting me be myself.

      You are never a chicken! You have cancer so that negates being a chicken. Just be really careful in the future. I had a friend who waited and almost died and was in the hospital over a week.

      I think we try to believe it is just like normal, get sick and you'll get better on your own. But, this is way different and things like chemo do things to you that aren't under your control. Glad you went to get checked out and btw I was always a chicken too..almost like enough is enough! Hope your blood counts were ok.

      Trip to the ER is never fun, no doubt about that, but don't mess around with a fever during chemo. From one "chicken" to another!

      Before starting chemo I received printed instructions from my oncologist to take my temp and call her office *anytime* (and that was in BOLD print) my fever rose to 100.5
