Justakid Posted February 20, 2005 Share Posted February 20, 2005 I can't possibly reply to all the posts and PM's that I have received over the past several days. I wanted to say thank you! My brother and family came to see me this weekend, then I have developed strep throat (we think) and yet another yeast infection in my throat. The doctor is treating me for both just to be safe. I called him and within 10 minutes he was back on the phone issuing orders. He likes me cause I keep all my meds and can just start taking them, had to remind him that he is the one who gives 6 refills on everything! Who would have figured that this would all happen...........ME! The snowball effect Thank goodness my throat has not closed up as bad as last time to put me in the hospital. Been taking lots of Xanax, pain killers, ice chips and ice cream. Been sleeping a lot from chemo too. Most of the times I'm up it's watching movies with the kids (if I can stay awake) or deciding what favorite restuarant we can go to once Mom can swallow again. The kids have a list and we are hitting everyone as soon as I can swallow. Following other members progress on the Alimta drug and so far, had one day with nausea that I started eating several little meals instead of three regular, which has always been better for me. My husband feels helpless about how to handle any of this, he's at the grocery store buying everything he can think of to make me my favorite soups. Just wanted to say thanks and tomorrow has the potentional for a good day! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
