The day Jimmy's been waiting for has finally arrived. It's not really a big deal as far as anyone who has had chemo is concerned because it's far less than most people being treated get, but it's a BIG DAY for Jimmy nonetheless. Jimmy is rather lucky because it only involves 3 days in a row of going back & forth to the hospital, followed by a week of isolation and then returning to the hospital again on April 21st.
The only thing that Jimmy is upset about is that he hasn't been able to eat the foods he likes or drink his MILK for an entire week, so far, and he'll have to keep up his special diet until April 18th and this is the day he's REALLY looking forward to.
Here's a link (below) that was sent to me by my daughter Sharon to read about what's been going on with Jimmy. The article calls for hospitalization and complete isolation of the patient undergoing the treatment but nowadays you know how that goes....you aren't allowed to be hospitalized for much and Jimmy will be sent right home for the entire isolation period.
