This just served as a good way to track tests, chemo, surgeries, and etc. This is your life. If you weren’t good with calendars before, that would change.
X-rays, CAT Scans, MRI’s, EKG’s, you name it. It was nice to have a place to chart results. I had a pre-rad page and a post-rad page. Just seemed like the thing to do at the time.
The hospital becomes the home away from home. Here you can see when our life changed. You name it, it was on here. See the whole page below:
Some things I used a lot. We ended up practically living at the hospital from August until Thanksgiving, so I didn’t really use the hospital visits page. Bad Mommy.
The notebook became a vital resource in my life. Thank you to the great staff of Children’s Hospital for providing it.
I hope you never have need of something like this, but if you do… maybe this helps. I actually think some of these ideas would be great for tracking your family’s allergies, shots, statistics, injuries, and so forth!
P.S. April marks 9 years cancer-free! Huzzah!
