I'll be getting my PEG tube yanked here probably next week....YEAH!!! I had to cheat, tho...hubby bought me a pair of Danner work boots a couple years ago...I wore those...LOL...I mean what's a couple of pounds, huh? I haven't used my tube since Sept. 14th for gawds sakes, so what is the point of having to have one??

    Woo Hoo!
    Wonderful news! Getting rid of that bad boy gave me such a boost. For next week's weigh-in, chug water and eat oranges shortly before hitting the scale.

    Cheating?
    I guess it is all right to cheat if everything comes out all right. Rick.

    what time is it? It's PEG popping time
    Hi Phrannie,

    I was told a story about a guy who carried weights in his pockets at the weekly radiation weigh in. The H&N forum had me scared if I lost weight they’d have to refit me for that blasted mask.

    I am delighted that you are at a fit and PEG popping Danner work boot weight. Heck September 14th is long past; they really make you prove yourself in Montana.

    Next is getting real food to taste right again. I had pizza tonight and it was ok good. 2 months ago I could not gag a piece of pizza down.

    Keep healing; I think that pocket stuff really works.

    Best,

    Matt

    Yay!!
    Get ready to instantly feel human again. At least in my case that's how it was.I was so tired of that darn thing and I hadn't been using mine all that much either. I got mine out way before the dr wanted me to, I still had all of my weight to gain but my body was rejecting it so out it came.
    Congrats on this next phase, hooray for heavy boots!!!

    So happy for you P51
    You have been a trooper from day one in this fight and to now remove the final physical piece of this road well traveled is deserved. So enjoy your 2nd belly button, and enjoy foods as they were intended, by mouth...........

    Stacey.....I was just thinking of the
    Asian Buffet a few minutes ago...what a great experience it was then, maybe now even a bigger, better experience, huh? I'm working midnights, but I have next Monday and Tuesday off...what do ya think...wanna meet after work??

    We can always wait till I have a weekend off, too...that won't happen till next month, tho...but it's easier on you than having to drive from C.Falls in the 5:00 traffic.
