Kids and child care


Spend time with kids, if that’s possible. You won’t have to “talk cancer.” Shelli loved her visits and visiting her niece and nephew when she was well enough. It was all about craft, cuddles and the occasional treats.

It can be difficult to look after your children when you are fatigued from treatment and a complex issue. Try and get your children to climb onto your lap instead of lifting. Drawing pictures, playing board games, reading and computer games will allow you to sit during those fatigue times. If your children are too small to climb onto a chair at the table try feeding them at a play table at their own level.

In those days when your immune system is compromised you are advised to avoid exposure to possible sources of infection. There is a risk of your children bringing home a virus or other form of infection. Care needs to be taken at all times. If possible arrange child care to avoid this and so that you have regular rest times on your own.
