1st day of HIDAC

This is an update about my health, if you're here for something else, like my software or other projects, feel free to skip this post, otherwise you can click the read more link below.

This is a friend typing for Cody again: Started Round 2 of chemo yesterday around 6pm, this round is HIDAC for High-Dose Cytarabine (I'm not sure what the A stands for). It's one of the same drugs I had in Round 1 except in a much much much larger dose. I get it twice a day, 6am and 6pm and so far it seems to have made me very fatigued so I've spent most of the morning lying around which is why I haven't responded to people's messages. I had a fever last night and a cough, they think I might have an infection so they're putting me back on more antibiotics and did a chest x-ray. They did another echocardiogram to look at my heart and they haven't heard back the results yet. I guess that's all for now.

    Incase you’re curious, the A seems to stand for Ara-C a.k.a Arabinosylcytosine which are just other names for Cytarabine.
