A Humorous Look at the Bright Side of Cancer... and There Is One

Tiny Bubbles… Big Happiness

12_23_2009_cancer_funny_last_chemotherapy_treatment_1 12_23_2009_cancer_funny_last_chemotherapy_treatment_2Yesterday, at the infusion center, I watched in envy as a group of nurses gathered around a fellow-patient marking her last chemotherapy treatment with dancing, singing, and blowing bubbles. I later remarked to my nurse, “Wow, it’s too bad I have to wait until September when the Herceptin’s done to get my bubbles.” She smiled but said nothing.

An hour later, the radio started blaring again. Some people had all the luck. When the nurses headed toward my recliner in the corner, I was flabbergasted. I got the whole nine yards: dancing nurses, singing, bubbles, and hugs. They assured me (several times) that Herceptin is not considered chemotherapy (like I thought it was) and I was all done.

  2. Hey Vern,

    The blog looks wonderful…by being able to include pictures makes the entries seem so more “real”! Know what I mean? The nurses’ picture that you chose is my favorite…you got an elbow jab on your head, but you can see more nurses on this one than on the other pictures.

    Anyways, a huge accomplishment on your part to get through all these grueling chemo treatments…looking forward to seeing the “Jamie Lee Curtis” girl soon!

    Love you, Tami
