Day+ 5 Health Score 61
Morning is difficult. My throat swells over night and it is like someone closed the drawbridge; nothing passes. Talking hurts and swallowing really hurts. I was able to drink a can of Ensure. I hope this can keep me off IV nutrition (TPN). Its hard to get out of bed, but the best remedy fro all of the above is a hot shower. That was revitalizing. Since my white cell count is now 0.5 K I am officially 'neutropenic' and confined to my room until further notice.
Steve Hargadon came and visited me last night and brought me Hagaan Daz mango sorbet. It was so good. He had called me while he was travelling here and asked if my hair had started falling out. I told him that it started falling out 15 years ago, but that I would finish the job this week.
