Good morning everyone, it has been a very long week for Dan. The mouth sores that he has been experiencing have made it impossible for him to eat. I could not even feel good about forcing him to eat the day after really looking into his mouth. Dr. Ellison thought that Dan should go on IV nutrition, so Tuesday thru Friday this week Dan is receiving 2000 calories a day thru IV at the chemo center,that way he can sleep at home. It takes about 6 to 8 hours to accomplish this, so long days. Yesterday we went outside of the box and had a dentist do a laser therapy on the mouth sores in hopes to encourage healing( so far not any really difference ). They think it might be two days before we see any difference.
