Mental preparation is key



BJ has been gearing up for some horribly painful chemo shots this morning. 

Two years ago, because he had severe anaphylaxis to one of the chemo drugs being infused, he had to endure a total of 60 of these shots. (The shots were the only replacement drug.) 

Two nurses would give him 1 shot in each thigh at the same time. 

Now, since he's grown so much, he has to get 3 shots. Two in one thigh and 1 in the other. He'll have to get these 3 shots every Mon/Wed/Fri for the next month. 

This is the part he remembers as being the most painful from the last 2 years of treatment.
