Nutritional advice needed.

Tomorrow's blood tests are to see how messed up I am because of the first round of chemotherapy. If my blood counts are low, I could be getting shots, transfusions or whatever else my doctor can think of as punishment. I don't want any of that, but I suspect SOMETHING is up because of my general malaise and droopiness.

Would eating a steak tonight improve tomorrow's red cell counts? How about fish? Ice cream? Gatorade?

UPDATE: I mis-spoke. I don't think anything is up in the "oh, my gosh I'm dying sense," but rather just that some counts might be on the low side.

Ummm Dan, FINE! Do what you will.... It's YOUR blog... You have the P-O-W-E-R.....the C-O-N-T-R-O-L.....

In regards to nutrition? I have 3 males in my kitchen who I am teaching how to make things by stratch.

Lets just say my brain is on instructional overload!

Since you suspect something is up, artificially altering your blood values would prove counterproductive and not compatible with recovery.
As much as I'd like to spare you from needles, transfusions and any more poking and prodding my best advice is to let the MD types get an honest look at how you're doing.
I'll pray too. God's already used to my endless nagging.

Raw calves liver. Your red blood cell counts will be sky high. You might get diagnosed with HIV though. Been to Dean's lately?
