Thanks Gail. Right now I am using Carnation Instant Breakfast. Between last night and this afternoon I have been able to get down 1 can of Chicken Noodle Soup. I'm only eating about 1/3 of a can at a time though. Not to mention it doesn't take much to fill me up after 5 days with no solid food. I wanted to lose a couple of lbs, but would have preferred a different approach! (lol)
My husband and I decided I should try to eat like a bird. A little bit, often. Of course I need to get to the point where I can eat to do this. Even with only the soup I am getting twinges though, so I would still be afraid to eat any real food, soft or not. My tongue is so disgustingly coated, yucky!
I am hoping I can put off surgery until the end of Oct. though. We run our own shop, and my husband runs a painiting/roofing bus. If I have to go in before that we would have to close up our shop and that owuld stress my poor husband no end. I'd hate to put that on him. He is so understanding and supportive.
Thanks again Gail. Your support means alot.
