219 days post treatments and I can declare my first day without a smoothie or protein drink (at all). Frosted flakes with half-n-half, broiled chicken, mojo potatoes, almond joys, snickers, cake, cherry pie and a ham sandwich and I may not be finished yet, I might need some food to make it more balanced.
Granted this was not as nourishing as my chocolate banana smoothie, but I also did not have to hear the whir of the blender or wash it for use again in 4 hours.
None of the food I ate today tastes like I remember, I just did not want to spit it out faster then it went in. I always questioned Skiffin’s assertion that taste would start to return (all be it slowly), but had my doubts based on my radiation oncologist telling me she may kill my taste buds forever. Hopefully, without jinxing anything, I bow my hat to Skiffin and his patience to catch fish and wait for taste buds.
Warrior with an appetite,
Thanks everyone that has helped me get this far.
