After Alan had brain surgery, his medication schedule was extremely complex, and that’s putting it mildly. Some of the pills were herbal supplements, but others were chemo in a pill and anti-seizure medicine. What if I forgot to give him one of those? OY!!! And candidly, at this point in our cancer journey, I was starting to lose my mind so I was really worried about skipping a med.
To help manage Alan’s medication schedule, I purchased a 24-compartment clear plastic box, labelled each compartment by hour, and every night before going to bed, I’d fill in the right pills to be taken at the “right” times. All I had to do was remember to look at the box every hour and I’d know what to do. Seemed like a good plan and it was… for the most part.
