Round 1 – Day 0

It is the eve of my first day of treatment.

I am mainly trying to distract myself from over-thinking, although later I will have to gather together my hospital kit. (Reminds me so much of preparing to go into labour. Much as the listeria diet reminds me of being pregnant generally!)

For entertainment – books, audiobooks, downloaded telly on the laptop, numerous time-killing phone games.

For mitigation of infusion reactions – anti-itching cream, paracetemol (just in case, although I expect the nurses will give me some!), water bottle.

For the steroid taste – which apparently you get even with intravenous steroids – pineapple juice and sugar-free mints.

And – of course – a bag’o’snacks!
