Back at UVA again. The last time Sam ate a regular meal was early last week. The pain in his jaw kept him from eating, then the nausea/vomiting added to the pain was another deterrent, then the sleepiness caused by his meds made it more difficult still.. but he has been able to keep a bit of food down today, and just ate most of a cheeseburger. I even turned on the TV to try to distract him into eating a bit more. How different things are now.
