    Very good ideas, I like the visit movies during the week day idea – since I did just that and it was a relief to get out. Balance is the key, but so is precaution. Before going to an event, it’s always handy to call friends ahead and see how they are feeling physically (and their partners). No use risking getting sick – but if everyone is well, then enjoy getting out! ~Catherine

    During chemotherapy or right after treatment if a patient must use public transportation will a facemask from the hospital be a big hel. As you said we cant put the patients in a bubble and avoid situations were there are a lot of people in a confined space but a mask is a good alternative for those situations we cant avoid, correct?

    When I was finishing up chemo, one of my sons who was away at college had mono and we all worried a bit when he came home for a visit. Sometimes it is hard to figure out that balance between taking precautions and living. One of the worst parts about chemo is that feeling of vulnerability. Thanks for the post. Important stuff.
