Sheesh, with all the kindness and support people give Kathleen at the cancer center, you would think she would want to come here just for the hell of it. Really can’t say enough about the folks who are there. Just overwhelming kindness, care and concern. Perhaps some of the kindness is because its Kathleen 🙂 I would say yes, but I am biased. They are without exception all amazing professionals and wonderful people. Cancer and its treatment are really shitty, but I could not imagine anything else being done to make it as bearable as possible
It looked like another clogged line to start the day, but it worked out just fine with a few extra flushes.
Another new med today to try and stave off the allergic reaction. So that’s 13… 13, you would think extra limbs would start growing with so many meds, but I am sure its not a record. Still had a slight allergic reaction anyway, but the new drug seemed to make it pretty minimal.
Kathleen is feeling pretty wiped out tonight. She is more anxious than usual about the coming days. The last round really knocked her down and physically its taking its toll. And when you are physically beat up, its hard to stay positive mentally.
It was also a bit of a reflective day. A staff member Kathleen would chat with from her days on the surgical ward dropped by and we were telling her about the 25 anniversary party and how Kathleen and I met. It was neat to dig out some old pics to show her, so I will share here as well.
