things are moving right along. i'm still using the PEG but i sense a bit of taste returning. last night at my arents house i took some tiny bites of pork roast and mashed potatoes with gravy. the gravy didn't thrill me because anything with fat in it feels really gross in my mouth but the meat was actually tasty. not the full flavor but i could taste it. i was able to swallow everything ok and i think the milk i drank made my mouth feel normal for awhile afterwards.
went to see a little comedy show at the community theatre today. for the first time in months i laughed really hard, so hard i cried, and i wasnt even worried about hurting my throat or getting choked up with mucus. today was the most normal i have felt in quite some time. the only thing missing is we would have gone to eat something delicious after the show. i'm very thankful for the tube and the Jevity though.
i go this week for follow up with my doctors and they will schedule my PET for next week. Scary!!!!!
i hope everyone is doing well :o)
