When we went to see Mr D at the hospital yesterday, he was a little bit more cheerful than before. He was no longer having hiccups and hardly vomitting anymore. However, his tummy has been growing a little larger since last Thursday. On Sunday, I spoke to the doctor on duty and he had a look at it. He sent Mr D to have an X-ray but the results were not very good. Having an X-ray was not the best way of identifying the problem. We hope to see some progress today.
Anyway, as I was saying, Mr D was rather cheerful yesterday. He could eat half a plate of potatoes and beans, and gulp down his hot chocolate without any hiccups or vomits. Most importantly, he appeared brighter and more energetic. He has made requests for some home-made food from his mom!
Meanwhile, apparently, his radiotherapy is scheduled on this coming Thursday. According to the nurse, Mr D will be discharged after the therapy, and will only need to come as an outpatient for the stenting. The chemotherapy is still not yet in the picture. But from my view of his condition yesterday, I think (and hope) that it be too long a wait until he regains his strength, InsyaAllah...
Again, thank you for all well-wishes from friends all over!
