Penned during my cancer treatment in my early 20s:
Today on Thursday, the thirteenth of May,
Margie and I have ECP treatments today.
Susie is training Joyce while Aminah takes charge of Margie’s care.
Nancy works at the computer on the red-padded chair.
My Mom frequently darts in and out.
While I get treatment, she runs all about.
The jam-packed room is operated just fine.
After each cycle, carefully marked is each vital sign.
Margie and I sit in our purple chairs during treatment and wait.
Thanks to the ECP nurses, in time we’ll feel great!
