The pain in my mouth has accelerated today. Needed to use painkillers for the first time to stop repeating ‘ow’. Red raw inside the cavity and finding it therefore difficult to get anything eaten. Managed some egg and mashed potato. Not at the same time. Chemo moved to Wednesday this week so that I can have the stomach tube fitted on Thursday. Might well be using it more than I thought at this rate. I am going to go for some paracetamol before bed and then picking up stronger painkillers tomorrow at the hospital. Hope I can sleep.
Must drink more water. This is going to be a herculean task as it tastes so foul but will make sure my body is the best it can be. Lots of bullying of myself to drink, drink, drink. Not feeling up for much more tonight. Goodnight.
