Here is a nice booklet on chemo from the National Cancer Institute, called "Chemotherapy and You." http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/coping/chemotherapy-and-you
Just as there is a little sheet that comes with prescription drugs describing all the possible side effects, the chemo drugs have a big scary list. That doesn't mean an individual will experience all of them. Different people have different experiences with the same drug. I think you're receiving good advice from others here. Keep him hydrated. Ask the doctor what you can do to be more prepared at home as far as nausea and other side effects. Stay alert with what's happening with his body.
There's an excellent little chemotherapy side effects worksheet available online, that simply runs through a list of questions every day, and provides a place to write his temperature. It's the sixth item down on this list-- http://www.cancer.org/Treatment/TreatmentsandSideEffects/TreatmentTypes/Chemotherapy/index
In your printing preferences, you can select only the pages you need to print, 2-5, print double-sided, and choose "fast draft" print quality to conserve ink and paper. It's just a handy way to keep daily notes, remember what to tell the doctor at the next appointment, and help you notice things.
