Thrush is not your friend

I have an infection (thrush) in my mouth that is quite annoying. I'll call the doctor tomorrow for some medication. This is the 3rd time I've gotten this particular type of infection since I started treatment. It makes it more difficult to eat. The lack of white blood cells, and the ph imbalance caused by the chemo, create a breading ground in the mouth for thrush. I sent the boys to the store to get some yogurt, which can help, and tomorrow I should have a prescription that will clear it up much faster.
I have been in bed for 2 days. I don't feel like doing anything but laying around. I wish I could eat more. That would help with my strength. Yesterday I had some rice and cream of mushroom soup and a Slimfast. I threw up the Slimfast. Today I ate some more rice and soup.
Tomorrow I will try to make dinner. I need to teach the boys to cook more. Maybe me and Chris can cook together tomorrow.
