    I am sorry I haven’t been here in a while. Things are not going so well.

    Gary now has a problem eating anything. Before he eats, he is hungry but as soon as he starts to eat he feels full. He said it feels like he’s forcing himself to eat after taking just a few bites. The nodules on his left side are at the base of his rib cage. He said the pain there intensifies greatly when he eats. He also experiences waves of heat, like some of us ladies experience hot flashes. I don’t know what to tell him. I don’t know if I should call the after hours number to have an oncologist paged. Is this something that can wait until Tuesday when his oncologist is back in the office, or should I call?
