Chemotherapy - Session IX

YAY! My neutrophils decided to be friends with me again. They came up enough for me to get my 9th treatment today. Only THREE more to go. I almost can't believe it.

So there was an Angel at the infusion center today. See, since I didn't expect to have to come in for treatment today, I didn't have company with me. No big deal, I was tired and I wanted to sleep through the treatment. BUT, I didn't bring myself lunch and I thought I was gonna be sorry about that 'cause I am usually hungry by 1pm... I'm lounging in my chair, trying to read a book - but kinda distracted 'cause my vision was a little bit blurry. And this lady comes up to me and asks me "Would you like lunch?" And I was like - "Um, just lunch - you're just giving away lunch?" And she was like "Yeah, no reason. I have ham, turkey or roast beef with all the trimmings." So I took her up on her offer and she brought me a plate with a ham sandwich, chips, pickles and a little chocolate cake. How nice is that! And she even came back and asked if I wanted seconds. She didn't say her name, but I asked one of the nurses what that was all about. She said that the Angel's husband was receiving treatment there at one time. After he passed away, she said she wanted to come back to give support to the patients so every last Thursday of the month, she comes in with lunch. She was really sweet. Really real. A real Angel.
