Tomorrow I am going to take a trip to the operating room for a feeding tube placement. Since the nasal feeding tube didn’t work, they are going to put one directly into my stomach. I have never been so excited for a procedure. My dry mouth and lack of appetite have been terrible. I have been losing a lot of muscle mass and the doctors want to make sure that I have enough strength for post-transplant recovery. We’re all hoping that this feeding tube will give me the nutrition that I need.
On the knitting front, Carol finished her cardigan. It took her about two weeks. She’s been re-enrolled at the 24/7 Susan Yoo School of Knitting. Her teacher, however, has not been productive in her own knitting. I can’t seem to concentrate on anything. Hopefully after my feeding tube is in, I’ll have more energy.
