    And who would ever thought this woman would become so attached to me. My boss, who I share an office with, has a sister that we have lunch with quite often. It has now gotten to the point that her sister asks if I can come too.

    She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She has had two surgeries and is now a month into chemo, and quite ill. She felt good enough today to go to lunch, and in the middle of lunch started gagging. I grabbed a picnic basket shaped ad for the restaurants new patty melt, ripped the top off, and shove it at her!

    She was fine and didn't need the thing, but it brought home the fact that this dear woman needs prayer for healing. So please keep her in your prayers. She is really a sweet gal, who last week shaved her head because her hair is falling out in clumps. [​IMG]

    Me too Wendy, and this is really the first time I have experienced it first hand. It is rotten.

    I'll send a little prayer out for Joyce. No one needs to suffer like that. I hope that was the only time and that she'll be fine. You do get sensitive to certain smells and certain foods. I don't know if you wear perfume or not Debi, or if your boss does but that is a big one for people on chemo. Just a little info for you. [​IMG]

    Quote:I dont because my boss is very sensitive to it, so when I see Joyce I never have any on. I even choose lotion with no scent because w share an office. Every three weeks Joyce received a cocktail of drugs and it usually takes 2-3 days before she is down for the count for about 4-5 days. She gets very sick.
