This morning August 24th, there was nothing exciting except more blood work, more discussion about my health with the doctor who is always laughing and joking around. My mom and dad seemed to be overwhelmed with all the information they were getting from the nurses, pharmacy, nutritionist and the list goes on.
Talking of the nutritionist, I overheard her telling my mom about high calorie intake and then she said something that scared me. She was talking about the tube feeding through the nose if I am not able to gain weight due to low appetite after the treatments. I discussed briefly with my mom and agreed to try few new high calorie drinks in coming days. I am not into food so much so it will be the toughest thing for me to do.
I had some fun at the art class where I am the only one all the time so it is kind of boring but still something to do.
My evening was not so fun one due to pain in the back. I tried sitting on couch, another chair, taking a long walk to the atrium of the hospital with my parents as the nurse suggested which helped little bit. Later around night time, I again got the pain in the back and this time it was really sharp that I started to cry and scream few times. I got the pain medication, hot packs, tossing and turning in the bed but nothing would work. My mom got worried and dad sat next to me. Nurse got the stronger medication through IV which seemed to help finally after 1 hour of suffering. Doctor told me that it may happen after the surgery and it may happen again. Finally I can go to sleep now and hope this will not come back again.
