Great news!

CSN is getting an upgrade. All of your posts will still be here, but the website will have a new look, new features and be mobile-friendly. To prepare for the changes, the site will be down briefly at the end November. We’ll continue to provide updates as we get closer.    

Aww, sis is at day 3/chemo....

Well, despite her positive thinking (she was CONVINCED she would NOT get sick like her sister did...lol), my sweet sis had to use some of my tips for heading off the upset tummy....

The one that worked for her (and ME) was scalloped potatoes...for each chemo week, I would bake up a big bowl before hand (couldn't STAND smelling food during...rofl)and put it in the fridge. Then I would nibble whenever I could...mmmmmmmm

Hugs, Kathi

Lucky, lucky Sis! I'm really sorry that she is dealing with this, too, but she couldn't have a better cheerleader/coach than you! The thing I found most tolerable when I could eat was no-salt, lo-fat chicken soup with rice instead of noodles. In fact, plain rice was a mainstay. Blessings to you both.

Hi Kathi,
I'm sorry your sis has to go through this. Hope she listens to your advise cause you sure would know.

Tell your sis i'm thinking of her. I can't say I have any tips cause I don't get upset tummy very often. When I do, I have a pill I take and that works. Right now I'm not wanting to much food, either.

Since I've been on Chemo I sure haven't been eating right. Used to love Veggies..but there is a lot of work in preparing those and you just don't have the energy. So..it's either the can veggies OR.......Sweet corn is now here! will have lots of that...I think.

Anyway....I'm rambling..My best to your sister and the potatoes sounds wonderful! I always liked chicken and noodles over mashed potatoes!

Take care

Sorry your sister is going through this.

Regarding the scalloped potatoes...yum!!
I'm going to try this when I resume chemo...whatever it is!

My prayers are with your sister.
