Only 9 left. Hope I can make it to the 35th one. Took pain meds 3 times today (only 1/3 of a dose at a time) and besides it helping with the throat pain I noticed it dries up the mucous in my throat. Who knew?
I'm also trying something else I had not tried before. The Magic Mouth Wash that I was given weeks ago - used for swishing then spitting or swallowing - is being used in a different manner now. I can not bring myself to swallow the awful stuff but it does numb the pain in my mouth when used. So now I dissolve a little in some warm water and gargle with it then spit. It gives my throat some relief and that's what I want it to do.
Today I ingested 680 calories, 24 ounces of water, and 99 grams of protein. Still not enough. I'm supposed to be getting 1879 calories, and 92 grams of protein. I ordered from Amazon the particular protein drink my dietician suggested for diabetics. A case was $89 with free shipping. Couldn't find it in any stores here in town. It should be here on August 10th.
So glad it's the weekend and I can take a break from radiation. Next week starts week 6. So close yet so far away.
