Can't talk. Pad by the bedside to write notes to nurse and doctor. Quit eating. Meds are coming I.V. Suction wand by the bed so I don't choke. Swallowing comes at a pain price. Predictable portion of process when the mouth and digestive lining is needing replenishing and there is nothing in the body to replenish the normally fast dividing cell fields. Condition called Mucasitis. When I'm quiet, my mouth and throat do not hurt. Best thing I can do is just be quiet. I love silent retreats. Helps me to listen.
