It all taste like cardboard !!!!

      Ok a quick update on my treatment. I have had 2 chemo and 8 radiation treatments so far. I have lost 4 pounds since the 20th .
   
     The first week got bad on day 5 (Friday) while I was up selling BBQ . I was hit with nausea and dizziness felt like I was going to pass out. I started the anti nausea med that night and was fine but tired Saturday doing the BBQ. Doing much better now that I scheduled when I take my meds. I learned their is no HE Manning through this.

      Lost my ability to taste Monday after chemo and radiation. Everything taste like I am chewing paper or cardboard. It doesn't matter what it is it all taste the same. I can smell the flavors but once in my mouth its cardboard. The nurse says I will regain taste once the radiation is over. Even coffee taste like crap .

  3. Sounds like it's all going normal. I guess now you'll have to have someone else taste test the BBQ! :-)

  4. You're going through all that and still working? No wonder people from Alabama have a reputation for being tough.

    1. I worked Friday cooking and selling BBQ but let my son sell what I had left Saturday. All true blooded southerners are tough. Its the libritards and Yankee transplants that are whiners.

  5. I wanted to give you some encouragement and let you know I was thinking about you.
    This is from a guy that is on my Blogroll also and I want you to go read it and see that you are not alone and that that fooking cancer can and will be defeated.
