Chemo. Round something something...Lost count...


5 days post chemo. Counts are dropping. Platelets are LOW again. Well,not 50 000 LOW, but close enough. I hope they don't drop 20 000 points overnight. Also hemoglobin is dropping and white count and ANC and and and more....
Regina is feeling alrighty. She has aches and pains here and there, and is not eating much, but is asking for food. She is drinking lots of milk all through the day.

I know Regina will hate me for writing about this but I have to .
Since chemo makes her super constipated and fruits do not taste very good for her now. She went to bathroom. Suddenly i hear this sweet high pitched voice. those, who have heard Regina speak, know what I am talking about.
I hear her calling my name- " Mommy, Mommy, mommy". I ran to the bathroom to see what is going on.
Regina has saddest face on and I don't get it at first. Then her sad face changes into a cute shy grin and she pulls her head between her sholders And she asks," Mommy, I think you should bring me banana now, because I think it will help me poop better, Right?"....

Well, I told her she can have her banana later.... but sadly after one bite, banana suddenly did not taste that well.....

I'm always checking in!

Look at her smile.

Just a note - bananas constipate more (potassium)....try P fruits....plum, peaches, pears....

Hugs,
Steph

Hi. With Regina it is different story with bananas. She gets major d......... . She has over 40 food allergies, and I am starting to think that we have to add bananas to list.. PLUS they help with her electorlytes:) She does not like plums and peaches :(

Hey Diana,

Have you tried those Fiber One drinks?? They're in powder form & you just add them to a bottle of water. The pink lemonade flavor tastes nice. Just a thought!!

XO!
