I've not posted lately, because I spent the last 9 days in the hospital.
2 weeks ago yesterday I had sugery to have a feeding tube implanted in my stomach wall. 4 days later I knew it had gone south when I caught a whiff of something I knew was wrong. Sunday AM to the E.R and upstairs I went, Proteus infection. Lots of nasty purulent drainage, enough to make you puke to smell it.
After 8 days of treatment with IV Invase, Flagyl and an antifungal drug, the infectious disease specialist said I could go home on some keflex capsules.
Of course, the pain of radiation damage to my neck and chemo treatments continued unabated. Plenyty of Dilaudid injections, days running together, hunger, (can't swallow most of the food), the whole catalog.
Boredom, incredible boredom. A nice fecal impaction after 2 days, that's not what you want to break up the boredom.
Just a day at a time, getting through. 3 of 6 chemo treatments over, 21 of 33 radiation treatments. left to go
