I could really use some advice. My husband starts radiation and chemo next week, the following week, we were fortunate to be referred to a Hope Lodge during his treatment. We will be at the lodge for 6 or 7 weeks, and I'd like to go as prepared as possible. Part of the agreement to stay is that I am always with him. So I'd prefer to minimize having to call others who are not so close by to make special deliveries. I can't imagine my husband will be really excited to be going for any extra car rides, and I'd like to think if I am smart about it I can save him some energy.
Since we haven't been down this road, I am not sure what might comfort him in the coming weeks. I plan to take his humidifier, glycerna, his liquid Advil, the blender, and cases of water.. I bought basis soap, and special tooth paste, biotene mouth wash, very soft brushes, his triangle support pillow to raise his head. Are there things that any of you or your loved one found comforting? that you wish you'd known sooner about?
Not quite sure what helps.. But hoping amazon can deliver whatever I miss!
