I have been eating much better lately! This is because the sores on my tongue have finally healed, and the other sores in my mouth are not as painful. Swallowing is a bit painful at times, but not nearly has painful as it had been. This has allowed me to eat “regular” food like the rest of the people in our family.
Today, I had an appointment with Dr. Barbara, my oncologist. She is very pleased with way the sores in my mouth are healing. I told her that I’ve been cutting back on the time I’ve been using the feeding tube from 11 hours to 8 hours to just over 5 hours. I told her that I’d like to stop using the feeding tube all together, and she agreed. The only caveat is that I need to maintain my weight for the next two weeks. Okay, I can live with that.
So I’m off the feeding tube as of today! Yeah 😉
