Crazy Chemo

Found this little video segment that my Dad took in October, This is the first time we administered Sam’s Chemo pills at home. Before we left the hospital with his pills, the Nurse gave us this big pile of safety gear to use while cutting and administering the pills to Sam. Now, call me crazy, but to me it felt like a little bit of overkill, however it provided a good laugh for us all, and you know what they say about laughter being the best medicine!

I must say though, it does make me shake my head to think that I am supposed to go to such lengths to protect myself from this cytotoxic drug, which I then place in the palm of my six year olds hand and ask him to swallow it.

I reckon it’s time we found a real cure.

  1. Sam’s laugh is infectious! A friend passed this blog on to me and I will now follow along. We live in central VA in the U.S. Keep up the great work of being a wonderful dad! Love that you are trying to keep things as normal as possible. Your family is in our thoughts.

  2. Love it! Especially Sam’s final comment. You guys are doing such a great job managing all of this. It’s a crazy journey to suddenly find yourself on. (As a chemo nurse, I agree with your gut feeling that it was a little overkill, but it sure made for some great giggles which are indeed great medicine for all)
