Think positive brother, we are pulling for you

Doing two drips twice daily, takes 4 hours every day. I mix up an IV bag every night and put it by the bed for the morning. That way I can start the drip when I surface and then go back to sleep while it is running its course. The IV drips are Rocephin and Septra.

On the plus side I am starting to see some improvement in my brain functions- processing and all of that is getting better. Short term memory is also improving. The downside is that physically I am in more pain and have less stamina. Also dealing with nausea which is a problem because I have no appetite and getting enough food is a real challenge.
Thoughts go out to you buddy. At least you live in a state where you can get medicine that is natural to help with the lack of appetite and nausea. Also when my uncle had throat cancer he kept his weight up drinking Guiness Draught since it went down smoother than other beers and is actually rather good for you.
