    What about watermelon. I lived on it while on chemo. And baby food prunes go down easier than dried prunes. I also liked boiled chicken breasts, and it has good protein in it.

    I overdosed on Stouffer's mac and cheese while on chemo. Can't even eat it today.

    PIP, I also ate alot of watermelon and  Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches,too.

    Holy shit excuse the pun, no one told me about the showe curtain or flushing twice.  The list is fantastic.  Good stuff, I'm saving it to favorites.

    Well, it isn't the end of the world if you DON'T flush twice the first day or two after chemo, close the lid before flushing, change the moldy/mildewy shower curtain. But the way I see it, it's an easy way to cut down on bacteria, you know? Glad you found this helpful. Know too, though, that nobody would accuse me of being an immaculate housekeeper, or even a very good one!
