Thanks for the info.

I made a note on my calendar and it seems I might just have one week left before having to face PEG reality.

I think I might be starting to get the mucous a bit on the roof of mouth. I will pick up a some Robitussen (it is OTC isn't it?). Also do you swallow it or just gargle and spit it out?

They are giving me a Liquid called Nutren 1.0 (with fiber). It only has 250 calories per can so I will have to use nine cans a day, but I think that also covers a lot of my fluid intake requirements. They delivered a months worth of cases, so to para-phase what said "what the Cancer Center and Insurance wants me to have".

Also managed to go to a film party last Thursday, real nice with a fabulous Greek feast. Once I got there I was fine which surprised me since usually by Thursday I am real RADed out! Hardest part was getting out my front door! While at the party ...I don't know if was supposed to, but a had a couple little glasses of Champagne (passed on that awful Greek pine-sol wine).

Keep us posted on mouth care, the does and don't.
