Eureka! Stanley's idea works!

Stanley Lapidus suggested we smuggle food into Jackie. The food at the hospital isn't exactly great. In the little handbook provided by the hospital it said this practice was discouraged. It seems the little book is usually ignored! The nurses say it is OK to bring in anything we like. Jackie had a hot fudge yogurt sundae from TCBY. It was a real struggle to get it through the underground tunnels and into the hospital before completely melting. It seems like half the Mayo Clinic stopped me to ask, "Where do you get those?".

Jackie is still getting a chemo drip. In another hour or so she can at least take a shower. I think that will help her feel better. Once she got over the initial effects of the Rituxin treatment she seems to have done well.
