As promised, here’s Table 31 looking Pretty in Pink! What fun!
In other news today, my taste buds have left me. Everything tastes blah. Well, almost everything. Yesterday, the only thing that tasted good was Mom’s homemade rice pudding. Since it was the only thing that tasted good, I helped myself to four servings! Of course, there’s NOTHING in there that’s good for you… white rice, eggs, milk, sugar… I’m just following doctor’s orders. She said specifically, and I quote, “I know you are trying not to eat sugar, but if you get to the point that sugar is the only thing that tastes good, I need you to eat it.” So I did. Apparently, the taste buds that like sweets are less impacted than the others. The body is a funny thing.
Tonight we have Mom’s homemade chicken noodle soup, with homemade noodles, to look forward to. Sure hope my tastebuds cooperate, at least for the noodles!
Labs looked decent today. WBC was a little low, but not as low as the nothing-point-nothing of Round 1. So happily, I do not need to take antibiotics, as they messed up my digestive tract. Hemaglobin was also a little low, which explains why I’m still a bit tired, but overall, she was very pleased. My kidney & liver functions were normal (yea!), and I received word that my tumor markers were also in normal range.
I tried a new tactic last night for sleep. Since the Compazine (anti-nausea) makes me sleepy, I tried it last night as a sleep aid. So Melatonin + Tylenol + Compazine = decent sleep. I only woke once or twice. So I think we will try it again tonight.
