1. Put a list of phone numbers together! Hospitals, Doctors, Pharmacy, your Nurse’s direct line, friends, babysitters, and anyone else you can think of! Keep one on your person and one at home!

2. Start nausea meds as prescribed until you figure out your body’s routine with the treatments.

3. Watch your temperature!100.5 degrees is your marker for calling your doctor. Infections will spread quickly and easily when your body reaches this temp.

4. You can become constipated or even have diarrhea. Make sure you ask your doctor which over the counter meds to have for both situations.

5. Buy some nice, comfy clothes that make you feel good.

6. Don’t push yourself too hard. When exhausted, take a nap! Don’t wear your body down more than you need to.

7. Choose the foods that you want. If you can eat them and hold them down, enjoy!

8. Chemo dries out your eyes, so make sure you have your moisturizing eye drops on your person and at your home.

9. This is your time in life not to be annoyed by others. Do things that make YOU happy. Don’t worry about when other folks bother you- let them know!
