We’re trying German for Week 6. Somehow it’s not a very exciting language for the words. I’ll have to find something better for next week.
All right guys, we’re getting down to the wire. 2 more weeks to go and we can put this all in the rear view mirror.
Week 5 started to get rough for Rick. His throat is getting sorer which means it’s getting tougher to eat lots of foods. His diet has mainly been Coco Wheats, scrambled eggs, mashed taters and chicken noodle soup. Pretty “bland” foods, but they slip down the gullet pretty good.
There is more redness to his neck from the radiation, but he’s not complaining about his skin hurting. I’m not sure if the lotion the Doc gave us is doing any good, but we’ll use it anyway.
Hes also getting a little more lethargic, but who can blame him with trips to Rice Lake 5 times a week and still trying to work as much as his body will allow.
I think that the Doctors are pretty impressed with how it’s going for him, so we’re taking that as encouragement that things will be OK.
Today’s special guest in the Chemo room was Dice.
Isn’t he just a cutie? He’s a 4-year-old German Shepherd that loved having his ears scratched. He was quite the big fella and I could tell when he was ready to go that nothing was going to stop him.
Which is why I got out of his way rather quickly.
