…at least as far as the port goes. I was starting to obsess about “Will the port work okay” and “Will I have to have the infusion done in my arm instead?” Turned out that the port is functioning just fine. This was the number 12, and 5 more to go. I keep a hand written calendar note and mark off each treatment with a bright hiliter color.
The next appointments are for very late in the day, so when I create menus for those weeks – I make a menu one week at a time always – I plan to have easy-to-fix meals on those days. This is one suggestion for anyone undergoing chemotherapy or Herceptin infusions. It is important to eat well, and by having fast and simple meals on the treatment days, you can do that.
