Each week, I receive a complicated mix of pre-meds and chemo meds. I watch as the IV bags arrive and the nurses sort them out. Some IVs last five minutes, some last 30 minutes. The nurses keep them straight, checking and double checking them, and I no longer worry about what they are hanging.

Last week, my nurse Jodie came in with my chemo meds and announced that she had my cocktail ready. I looked at her and said, “I normally like olives with my cocktail and straight up!” She laughed and said she did too. This week as my chemo meds arrived, she walked in and said she had something for me. She pulled out a jar of olives and we both laughed. I have the best nursing care on earth! We find fun wherever we can.
