Post Stem Cell Transplant – Day 12

Happy Easter! Another major holiday spent in the hospital, to go along with Christmas, New Years Day and MLK Day. When I took my shower this morning I was able to rub off most of my hair with a washcloth. I still have my eyebrows. My throat is getting better. Still not eating a lot but it’s staying down. Food seems to taste like absolutely nothing, even my favorite fallback peaches. My mouth is still raw in spots and rough in other spots. The roof of my mouth is also still very rough. This causes different parts of my mouth to respond to heat and cold differently. I had a strange moment eating peaches when a spoonful would feel cold in part of my mouth and room temperature in other parts, all at the same time. Lisa brought me a plate with some ham, green beans, mac & cheese and a crescent roll. I took a few bites, but my taste buds didn’t cooperate.
