Paul has had more nausea this time. He has not thrown up from it, but it has not been much fun. He was just starting to gain weight when he started chemo again. He started to put on weight right after he got his esophagus stretched....but now he is losing again...he hasn't gacked much, but he has no appetite. He is now down to 168 lbs. He said everything has a metallic taste to it. I feel like a nag because I am constantly asking him if he has eaten.
Recently, Paul's friends from work gave him a care package with hats, books, and dvd's. We had a great time looking at all the different hats! It was just what he or should I say we needed!
Paul is such a thoughtful person. He decided to make cookies the day before we went to Huntsman so he could share with the nurses and other patients. He makes very yummy cookies! Paul took one of the hats and wore it while he was getting his chemo at Huntsman....He made the people smile as he walked around sharing his cookies...Here's why...
|This is one of the hats his friends sent...Yep, you are seeing it correctly...it has a crocheted mustache and beard attached to it (they are buttoned to it so you can remove)! I think he totally looks like a lumberjack!|
