I mentioned in my last blog post that I was referred to Hospice by my Oncologist. Last week Hospice contacted me and I was formally admitted to the Hospice program. Since then people from Hospice have been in and out getting my information and the support I need to move forward from this point.
My health has been rapidly declining for the last couple of weeks. I have been running out of energy much quicker, requiring much more sleep, my appetite has been severely diminished and I have been vomiting a lot lately, something I didn’t do all through my chemotherapy. I was given medication that should help with my energy level and appetite. So far no luck on that.
I did go to breakfast at The Original Pancake House this morning with Chris, my oldest son Josh and his girlfriend Megan. I ordered my usual 49’er Flap Jacks but couldn’t even eat half the serving. I know things are getting bad when I can’t even eat my favorite meals from my favorite restaurants. Looks like I will be trying some liquid food like Ensure and Boost to see if these sit any better with me as I have been losing weight steadily.
