It’s Hard to Watch Her Fight

It’s been a hard day. The third chemo treatment started out fine, but once she got home the vomiting started. You helped her get settled in bed and covered up with the light-weight blankets that she preferred. You left a basin, in case the vomiting continued, a glass of cool water, and a cool washcloth on her forehead. It’s what she did for you when you were growing up and feeling sick, and it’s the only thing you know to do for her.

When your mom, aunt, or grandmother has cancer and you are the caregiver, it takes its toll on you, but mostly you put that feeling away because it’s taking a toll on her even more. You’ve watched her hair come out in clumps. You’ve changed bandages from her surgery and administered the scheduled medications. You’ve researched and researched till your fingers are numb and your Google-Fu gives out.  You even crocheted a beanie cap to keep her head warm. But there is only so much you can do to help her feel better, and you’re running out of options.

Consider a Visit to Drip Drive

One of the best things you can do to help your loved one feel better is checking into an IV Drip treatment.  At Drip Drive in El Paso, we offer IV infusions that can help people suffering from the effects of chemo and radiation. The Meyer’s cocktail that we base our infusions on is packed with vitamins, minerals, and hydration.

Call and schedule a home visit so she doesn’t have to even get out of bed! The treatment lasts 30-60 minutes after which she’ll feel more like her old self than she has since her diagnosis. At Drip Drive in El Paso, your health is our primary concern.
