    9 looking toward none

    ahollie,

    Remind hubby to keep drinking water and to keep swallowing.

    Keep moving forward,

    Matt

    Good Luck Guzzle!

    My hunny did so well as you did from his surgeries and did very well the first three weeks of chemo and rads...but the 4th week..he got an infection and swelled up really bad and was unable to get treatment for almost a week...the mask wouldnt fit! he has been doing very well since then..but thank goodness he got the feeding tube as his throat swelled nearly shut..he wasn't able to even get water down for 2 days...he hasn't lost any weight and is still very stong..he eats some soft foods...just takes him a long time to get down...so i have been pureeing things in the blender and ordered some real food online for him..i think that has helped alot...stay stong...keep me posted how you are doing..and i will keep you on my prayers list!

    single digits! Thats great news

    Yes it is a bumpy road but down to single digits is great. Next thing you know it's ZERO, and just recovery.

    We'll keep you both in my prayers.
