Today was the weekly visits with Dr. Rad and the Chemo guy. Chemo guy takes blood to make sure I’m not too whacked with the platelet counts. The whites and reds are not where they should be under normal circumstances, but they are not too far off either and under current circumstances they are fine.
The last couple of days, more so today, is a new phase inside the mouth. Tongue and throat are apparently reacting to rad, finally. And, the pain is saying, don’t stick solid food in your mouth unless you intend swallowing immediately. Not being a fan of swallowing solid un-chewed food, means it’s now a liquid diet. The bright side is that I can still swallow, albeit delicately. Contentment has settled to a new level.
