Turns out it was Chemo #8 - the last one!
And since it was the last one scheduled [and so far it appears to be working just fine] I used it as an opportunity to finally experience what a foot massage was like. Hey, you only live once.
There are two massage therapists who work the chairs in the Oncology Center. The funding is from a grant from the Victoria Buffum Foundation.
Cindy Schaefer told me she "really loves to be able to offer comfort."
Yes, I was taking notes while getting the foot massage.
"It's a reminder," said Cindy, "that they can feel good with their body. People in pain need to be connected to their bodies to heal."
I never realized the foot had so many parts!
