At Duke medical center in the chemo area they have puzzles that people bring and the completion of them is an ongoing thing. The chemo room is open and everyone has their own tv to watch but others choose to walk around and visit, chat, knit or crochet, smock, read, play video games or bring small video's to watch their own movies. My Mom's favorite thing believe it or not is to send my Dad and me down to the cafe to bring her something to eat!
The staff is friendly and they have cancer survivor volunteers that will visit around, answer questions from a personal point of view and just offer encouragement.
It's a very friendly and comforting setting.
My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.
"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is. Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.
