DAY 99 - Day 2 in Recovery Paradise

Bad night sleeping. I need to get more rest. I was not able to keep much food down today. Seems mostly to be the buildup of mucus on my throat. It keeps gagging me when I swallow.

Got another cool card from my sister. She is a pillar of strength in all of this, and I owe her big time, along with my wife. I could not bear it without their support.

I have an appointment tomorrow with the oncologist nurse to see if I need to get hydrated before the weekend. I hope so. I always feel better and rejuvenated. We will talk about the feeding tube and whether I can outlast the gagging.

  1. I wonder if your hydration level affects the thickness of the mucous? You mentioned a little relief right after your ER re-hydration last week and were able to get the Ensures down a little better. Can you schedule a periodic "fill-up" with the doctor or clinic?
