And...he's still yelling at the TV when his football team messes up
On a serious note though, I did notice that he was noticably more tired toward the end of this week, appetite has definitely taken a nose dive, and throat is starting to get a slight 'raw' feeling...No radiation burn yet, or really even much, if any, redness. He is using the Calandula Cream; I am a believer so far. We are doing the things we can do to keep the worst of the symptoms at bay for as long as possible, and I guess so far, so good.
As far as weight loss, so far he is down three pounds. Taste is 90% gone, and the only thing that even tastes remotely good to him is chicken noodle soup. I think for the past 3-4 days that is literally the only thing he has eaten (he is hydrating though!). I'm just happy he's eating something and am trying not to panic about it being the only thing going in. Can someone please assure me that this is ok so that I can really stop worring now...
As you all had warned us, it's not a walk in the park. But, as so many of you went on to say...it is managable (so far). Thanks to you all again for all of the great advice before we embarked on this journey...
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
