You're a braver (more fortitidinous?) man than me... I would have given up long ago in the face of the sickness. Congrats on the weight loss though, and hopefully it doesn't come to a visit to the hospital!

I think it's less bravery and more sunk cost fallacy combined with the hope that it really will get better in a few months. Thanks, though.

Well, I'm still pretty much as nauseous as usual. I've been able to get a little solid food down. Not as much as I'm supposed to at this point, though. Just trying to take things slow.

Do you have a nutrionist?  He/she could help with a better diet plan for your issues of adaptation.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Yeah. I saw her on Monday. She just says to eat what I can in small amounts, focusing on protein first, and to go on a liquid diet for a day when I throw up. I've been eating yogurt and cheese and drinking Boost, mostly.

She lets me drink Chrystal Light instead of water since water leaves a bad taste in my mouth for whatever reason.

I'm able to eat more things, but still don't do well with meat or other high protein sources it seems like. I get most of my protein via shakes, cashews, and rice cakes these days. I suppose I have less days of vomiting too, though the last couple of days have been a little tough.

I'm going to the doctor tomorrow for my belated three month follow up visit (should have done it in mid-December, but kept forgetting until it was the holidays).
