|Oscar & Isobella after Chemo 7|
As well as IV antibiotics Oscar is on powerful anti fungal medicines for his sore mouth, and is now receiving TPN (nutritional support administered directly into his veins rather than through a feeding tube into his stomach). He had the NG feeding tube through his nose to his stomach for a few days at Christmas, and although this got him back on his feet he hated it so much we really want it to be a last resort again. He didn't eat anything while this was in place, refused to talk, and held his hand over his mouth most of the time. It definitely seemed to affect him quite badly, he became such a nervous and introverted little boy, and we would hate to see that happen again!
