Day +5

Mucositis is getting worst. Very painful. He now can't really talk. Imagine having an ulcer but this time all over the mouth and throat and possibly down the GI tract.

Things like soft pear and watermelon is painful to swallow. So purely on liquids now. Light cream soup with blended veggies, soya bean drink, ensure choc milk, chrysanthemum and barley.

Doc says it will last about a week. Pain killer given (but only slightly effective) is small doses of morphine in drip

Today's counts:
WBC: 0.1
HB: 8.4
P: 35
