The side effects I am having right now are dry mouth and skin, hair loss, minor blisters in my mouth and on my tongue, and I can only eat soft liquidy foods which all taste like metal. Today has been the day that I have missed eating food and it tasting normal, more than any other time. I was beginning to get a little down this evening thinking about how I would love to be able to eat something, anything, and it actually taste good. Even drinking has become something I would just as soon not do, because of the taste. Wendell came back from his Mom's with a bowl of chicken and dumplings she had made for me. I began to eat them and could actually taste some of the chicken flavor!!!! It was the best thing I have eaten in weeks!!! I know it is silly but I am almost in tears thinking about what a blessing that was!!! It never ceases to amaze me, how the Lord knows exactly what we need and when we need it most!!! My Mother in Law has worried over my not being able to eat much and has tried her best to help in any way she can. What a Blessing!!!
I hesitate to post anything specific about any cards or comments I have recieved, for fear of leaving someone out. I have recieved hundreds of cards, letters and emails from individuals, couples, Church groups, etc... these also seem to arrive at times I need them the most. I recieved some yeterday from some children from Pine Orchard Vacation Bible School that came exactly at the time I needed them. They were such a blessing. Thank you kids for the cards and most of all your prayers!!!!
