It's chemo Thursday up here in Bel Air. No worries, readers, my sister and I have been spending chemo time together for over a year now and we know how to bring the fun to the infusion center. Some may want to make the sad face for chemo, but I think "Yay, chemo! Get in there and do your work!"
We spend our time creating new Spotify lists, watching old excerpts from SNL, and pretend-buying houses on Zillow. There's also time to review the hits of the 70s and 80s, reminiscing about bands like Bread, Blondie, and Wild Cherry.
Even better, we get to do this while we munch on Nutter Butter and Oreo cookies and sip on water and Ginger Ale. And it's all free! If we're really hungry the fabulous hospital volunteers are more than happy to bring us a sandwich.
Sister Jeen is comfortable in a hospital lounge chair, complete with a warm blanket across her lap and a handmade scarf around her neck. My chair isn't as comfortable, but since I'm not the patient I think that's just fine. I have a view of the bright blue skies outside and time to catch up on a little bit of schoolwork.
Two hours later we're out. Another infusion in the books.
