For those of you following the saga of the cancer in our lives:
Harv has been fighting heartburn which makes him feel pretty bad. He woke up early this morning to take some Maalox. When he got up "for the day" before he could eat, he vomitted. He then forced himself to eat some toast with peanut butter (his morning standard.) That did okay, I think.
Then the oven repairman came so Harv hid out upstairs and then ended up napping... which I don't think is a bad thing. He napped for about 3 hours...
In the meantime, I decided that I'm gonna throw this cancer cooking junk out the window for now and encourage him to eat whatever "crappy" stuff he wants. (We'll re-institute honest-to-goodness good food when he gets better.) So, when he woke up, I offered him a smoothie. The one I made wasn't exactly the way his taste buds wanted it so I went to the smoothie place to get him a "better" one.
That one didn't really do either.
While I was out, I bought Campbell's Chicken and Rice soup which sounded good to him, but it really wasn't. Ginger ale and Bugles were also offered.
Since then, he's thrown up again. I gave him some nausea meds and now he's asleep.
I'm guessing that he's lost some weight over the past few days. His pants are extremely baggy, but I don't know if that's loss of muscle or some weight loss thrown in there, too.
Please pray that he can/will drink enough fluids and that his appetite will return at least for crappy "good" food that perhaps has some protein.
Thank you for the love...
