First Real Meal

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm excited! I just ate a real meal after living on Ensure milkshakes for the last 6 wks. Fish, mashed potatos.carrots, and banana pudding. Just tid bits of each. But I'm not nauseated or throwing up. It can happen to return normalcy. Don't know how long it will last, but I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts!

    Well It was good for yesterday, but I'm back to the nausea and no appetite today.  No rhyme or reason.  The reprieve was nice. I'll take it any time I can get it. If I have an appetite like I did yesterday, I'll eat, and when I don't I won't!  Maybe having an appetite is the key. What experience have others of you had?  Good luck everybody.

      I hope so too, Sheila. Just go very slowly to soft foods first. I drink an Ensure (any flavor), 5 scoops of ice cream (any flavor) and enough almond milk (any flavor). Nice n cool for the tummy. Enjoy
