Food tasting bad... again....

Well today was a day of trying to find something to eat. The only way I ate today was some food followed by a jalapeno. Nothing tasted worth a flip today. This is not suppose to happen until next week after I start chemo. But will continue to try and eat to keep the weight up. I am now at 158 pounds. It was hot enough today to lose a couple of pounds if you were outside very long. It was 105 here in Midland.

Had an upset stomach this morning. I believe it was due to the magnesium I started taking last night. So took it with my evening meal. But other than being a little tired it was a good day overall. I think stress is getting to Lucille. I really think she has it just as hard as I do as she worries about her eating, my eating, my complications, finances, etc. It makes me feel bad in that I am causing her some of her problems. So after this is over with, I will have to make it up to her.

But I feel that God will look after both of us. Seven weeks and then the real road to recovery. That can take up to two years from some of the folks I have talked to. But it beats being six feet under. Besides I have alot of stuff to do, providing God does not want me yet. And I believe he has much more in store for me here! So even though I am anxious about this next week I am approaching it as the beginning of the end and the beginning of the future.

I am going out of town with Lucille for a little R & R with my son Adam. So I may not be back on until Sunday evening when we return. So I hope everyone has a great weekend and just remember Mother's Day. Nite all...
