I tend to keep pretty private with others in the infusion room. I don't feel it is appropriate to compare each other's diagnosis or treatment. But every now and again things just come out. He talked about needing to stay away from someone who was just too active for him at this time, it sounded like maybe his small son. That was so sad to hear, but I can totally understand. I can't imagine having a small toddler/pre-schooler in my house 24/7 while going through all this. I know many do, and I know there is no way around it, but it would be hard on both individuals, not to mention the spouse trying to manage it all. Just saying... we have things to be empathetic about and thankful for in every encounter we have each day. There but for the grace of God go I ... In a moment things can change and that could be us. And then there was the person behind me sleeping like a log, snoring, and sounding like my dear husband. :-) But as we left, I noticed it was not a "guy" as I suspected, but a woman. I was happy she was getting a good nap. I know I always get very sleepy during infusion and usually take a bit of a cat nap too.
