I almost always toss 3 whole dried thai chili peppers in my soup while simmering. If one opens, fine, 2, it's rosy, and I've never had all 3 open.

Pirate has been doing all the cooking for the past weeks. I know he tries, but I have no appetite, at all. He made a delicious beef stew the other day. He likes his with just the broth, I like mine a littler thicker. So he took out what he thought I would eat and thickened it for me. How could I not eat it. I lost another three pounds. Not good at all. I am now an even 100 pounds. I cannot afford to lose anymore or they won't do the surgery. So he asks me every morning, what do I think I would eat. If I said Beef Wellington, I know he would make a concerted effort to make it for me. So I have been just saying, "Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup." Even if it is only a small custard size bowl of it.

You need more protein for wound healing. Boost High Protein...do it!

I agree, get some nutrition enhancing shakes, like Boost.

Have Spike pick up beef bones to make bone broth. Have Pirate make chicken soup with a whole chicken. Then use the bones for bone broth. No more Campbells, not enough nutrition there.

I was thinking the same thing for you Addie - there are many drinks to choose from. Up here "Ensure" is a popular one.

I am now on a high protein drink that is tasteless. I don't mind drinking that. And I am making a real effort to eat mostly meat along with a small helping of veggies. (I will need to pick up another can of the protein this Friday.)

My regimen is a nurse comes twice a day to change the dressing. Once a day was not working. After about five hours or so, the wounds would start to burn. Sure enough, I would take the dressing off and it would be filled with slough. I have two huge shopping bags filled with medical supplies. The nurse doesn't even bother to bring up his own bag. It is working much better with the two changes of the dressing a day. On Friday, I go into Winthrop so the doctor and RNP can take a look at them. They take their pictures that are transferred right into my file on the computer. I have been on antibiotics since I left the hospital.

I am becoming impatient for the surgery. Having been through all of this before, I know what I am facing. The difference is that this time I have a whole medical team on my side doing everything they can do.
