My business partner was going through this last year at this time. ''netflix" subscription helped.. She was given an ipad, so she was also able to use the subscription for her ipad. She took this to her Chemo appt. since she was usually there all day long.
She was also told to take her own lunch.. so we found a super cute lunch bag for her.
I purchased her a very soft tshirt type night gown, since she became very sensitive to weight on her body and the rubbing of fabrics on her skin.
Sheep skin lined slippers. Her feet became very sensitive.
She will need calories..... One of the things my friend enjoyed were very thin and crisp cookies. I cannot recall the name of the brand, but they make fabulous cookies that are packaged that are thin almond cookies, thin butter cookies. also very thin ginger cookies. All of these are at the grocery store, but are the more expensive cookies.
She also needed to eat high calorie foods, but had no taste in her mouth.. so creamy soups helped.
She really enjoyed the Sonic Strawberry Lime slushes.. So before I would visit her, ! would call and see if she wanted one.
She also needed to use fruit and vegetable cleanser.. for all of her fresh produce.
She could eat eggs, soft boiled and scrambled.. and keep them down. So we made sure she always had fresh eggs
The first piece of medical equipment she needed, after her oxygen tank ,was the shower chair. So consider finding her one. we borrowed one.
And a light bathrobe. The heavy ones were to cumbersome for her to deal with..
I also gave her a small suit case with the long handle and wheels, so she could pull it to and from her treatments and the doctors office.
