Today is ASCT +28 or 4 weeks since I received my stem cells back.

The Nausea is not quite gone. Oh well! But it does remain much reduced from where it was last week. I seem to need something for the nausea most evenings and otherwise not during the day.

Finally seem to be rid of the constipation I had been suffering since the end of last week. Now I have to keep things soft and loose enough so this does not happen again. So I must eat the right foods. Only, food is strange. How am I supposed to do this?

Food is a strange thing for me these days. I frequently recall something I used to like very much and when I get it, all it seems I can eat is a too small amount. One exception on Sunday, was pork cutlets. This I did enjoy – to a point – which is why this is all so strange. Thought I’d have some hot milk with Ovaltine this evening – got half way through the cup and needed to stop and have an anti-nausea med.

I think I’ve mentioned to you before that sometimes I really do feel as though I’ve gone down a rabbit hole and gotten lost.

In the meantime, I really am doing better each day. Some days are more measurable than others.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing, and thank you for the healing received in others we pray for: Pia, Barbara, Herma, Berris, Sylvia, Nicola, Mike, Joe, and the people of the Philippines.

Amen.
