Socks, chemo….. After a lovely day at Infusion Center A yesterday, I am now at Infusion Center B. Today’s cocktail includes Halaven (the Sponge Bob chemo) and Cyclophosphamide (cheap but very very valuable old fashioned chemo) and Zometa (bone chemo that causes fever. When all your other drugs tell you to get REALLY REALLY upset and do not pass Go do not collect 200 dollars go get checked if you have a fever….. )
Upon request, I am waiting for a couple more photos of much loved socks. You all made me SO happy yesterday with all the stories and the photos. I felt so wrapped up in friendship, and it totally got me through. Maybe we need to think of something fun to do every chemo day. I need SOMETHING to make it better, this is getting far beyond tolerable otherwise.
Today’s photos… Today’s socks, for this superblitz chemofest, are rainbow socks which match my sock-sister Ann Voskamp’s, that she wears when she needs to be brave. Yesterday’s Infusion Day Specials were the collaborative project with my friend Tricia Morris. Then, the socks with shoes belong to Jane Sweeney Ghosh who is in the airport on the way from England!!! And the final photo is today’s chemo doula, who gets to sleep through this experience because he has to work all night.
