Keep those get well wishes coming. Just got a really nice card from Jesse C.

Still on a full liquid diet - no solid food at all. Even so, after drinking a nutritional drink like "Boost" or "Ensure", I get painful cramps soon afterward, as the liquid is having a tough time going though my small intestine, due to the tumors causing some blockage. I see my oncologist on Friday, and will be starting an additional chemotherapy next week, that hopefully will open things up a bit.

Best wishes John.

My dad was using Ensure drinks for a while last year while he recovered from pancreatic cancer, they may not quite be food but they seem to give you the nutrition you need. Fingers and toes crossed that the treatment opens things up for you :)
The government says that by 2010 30% of us will be fat....I am merely a trendsetter :)
