The mouth sores are here! The mouth sores are here! And they are not fun. Yesterday I had to move to the super soft toothbrushes that Jennifer C. sent me a few weeks ago. Thanks again! My gums are pretty sore and the tooth-brush helps. Then there are the sores on the side of my mouth and the top and bottom of my month. Eating has been getting a bit harder. Yesterday morning I made oatmeal thing it would be good since it is soft but it tasted weird. There goes my taste buds. Instead I had a banana. Ugh. This sucks.
Lots of people have told me about toothpaste, mouthwashes and gels that are made for this such thing. One of the two places I went to yesterday was Whole Foods and I asked the sales lady in the Health and Beauty section if they had anything. She showed me PerioWash.
This morning after I brushed my teeth (painful), I took a cap-full of mouthwash and started to swish. Holy Pickles that burned. I swished for 30 seconds and then spit. I then repeated it like it said to. DAMN!! The burn!!!!! After I was done, it was pretty painful for 2 minutes but after that my mouth felt pretty good. Now let’s see how long it will last.
Hair Update: Today is Day 13 of the Chemo Game and I still have may hair. However, this morning a lot more the normal came out.
I texted the picture to My Man and I think tonight is the night. I am going bald. I plan on pulling my hair back into a pony-tail and braid it. My Man will then cut off the pony-tail and then the clippers will come out. I plan on taking pictures of the process but I am not sure if I will post a bald picture. Not sure if I am ready yet but I will post some with scarves.
Ok Readers! Time to find something soft to eat for lunch. Have great day!!
