My mother in law has recently been diagnosed with Myeloma and has just started treatment. I am trying to think of all the little things she will need or find comforting. I have got her a diary, 2 actually the first was nowhere big enough to list the medication! I am making a photo blanket as a friend said the arm can get very cold when having chemo, I’m sorting audio books and music etc. however I am hoping you may be able to advise on the type of thermometer I should get so any infections can be spotted ASAP. I’m a mum so immediately thought an ear thermometer would be best but have since had other people tell me an under the tongue one would be better.
I hope this post is ok I don’t want to get this wrong.
