Actually, I do
not really think so. Flowers are an expression of great love and can
really cheer up your Chick.
writing thank you notes to the 75 people who sent me flowers while I
was in the hospital and for several weeks after I got home, I began
to think about it a little. My family and close friends from near
and far wanted to connect and let me know that they were thinking of
me. For that I am both humbled and remain grateful.
I went from the stage of recuperating from surgery into chemotherapy
treatments I realized that there were a lot of things I was going to
need. Things I didn’t currently have as budget-line-items in my
life. This is to say, rather unexpected expenses.
there was sleepwear that I could have on when visitors came by. Then
there was a need for very loose-fitting clothing I could wear to
start getting out of bed and walking in the neighborhood.
my hair started to come out I needed (or thought I needed) a wig.
When I realized the wig wasn’t working for me, I needed hats in a
variety of colors and styles. When I lost my eyebrows I was
desperate for solutions because no eyebrows was the worst assault of
all. Once I had a great
hat thing going I needed the make-up so my face could compete with
my hats. Then I got bored with a few hats and needed more head
covering solutions…..You can see how this thing grows.
for women with other kinds of cancers there are other line-items
like breast prosthetics, special bras and bathing suits, comfortable
clothing that won’t hurt during radiation… the list goes on.
think we have the perfect solution - Gift
Chick in your life can choose just what she needs to cheer her up!
will be letting her know that you not only care, but that you
understand the challenges she has ahead of her.
