Getting my chemo bag all ready for tomorrow. Here’s what Im packing:

20130403-122229.jpg

A: My awesome seatbelt looking bag (its lighter than normal seatbelt bags but they can be heavy) that my community group girls gave me. It’s huge, perfect size for all my chemo time needs.

B: Super soft, warm fleece blanket. Another gift from my lovely community group girls.

C: “Help, Thanks, Wow (three essential prayers)” by Anne Lamott – my faith book

D: “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (a mostly true memoir)” by Jenny Lawson – my memoir book

E: “Paper Towns” by John Green – my fiction book

and yes, three books. My favorite types, all ready depending on my mood.

F: Pen for journaling and charger for iPad/iPhone

G: Chapstick (one of the dozen I have thanks to kind friends) and hard candies (thanks to Brandi and Susan) in case chemo taste bad.

H: lotion (another community group girls gift)

I: water bottle, have to drink 64 ounces a day – very important. Gift from Anna

J: my iPhone and gum (dry mouth happens too)

K: my personal cancer journal. Gift from Allison. It says “you’ve cat to be kitten me right meow.” A little humor to help keep my spirits up

L: iPad with Netflix and amazon instant queues ready and waiting

M: magazines thanks to Susan and Brandi (yes that’s one direction what of it?)

Not pictured: snacks! Lots of them. Gonna be there for 5 hours.

Any last minute things that needs to be added to me already awesome bag?

Looks like you covered it! Maybe add some warm socks?? You have a package of many of these items coming tomorrow or Friday so you will have some backups for next time 🙂 Love you. You are in our prayers and especially tomorrow as you start your treatment.

Socks! Good idea. They are added to my bag. Thank in advance for the care package.
