Other Care Associated with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL). Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

My best friend, Stacey, was my home caregiver. My husband, at the time, was a VietNam veteran and in the VA Hospital, and she stepped up to the plate to give me whatever care I needed. You can not do it by yourself, you need someone who is there for you, who helps you and supports you in every way. She was an angel to me, always will be, and I hope that someday I can "repay" her for what she has done for me. She was my cheerleader, my coach, my nurse, my housekeeper and cook ... she did it all!
Before I started chemotherapy, I got onto the internet and found out from other survivors about diet, what you should be eating while in chemo, etc. Everyone said fish, seafood, fresh fruits and vegetables, so ... that is what I ate. One time, after about 2-3 rounds of chemo, my oncologist asked me "What are you eatiing?" I thought, oh no, am I doing something wrong? Well, I told him and he asked me where I got that information, and I told him off the internet, and he told me "Keep it up, it's working." So ... eat lots of fish, seafood, fresh fruits and veggies ... NO red meat at all!
