    Thanks for your response to my question about chemo foods. I suspect you may be right about needing to eat what sounds good, and who knows what that might be. Still, I'll take something non-spicy and at least her husband will have a meal without having to cook. I'm also watching her dog so he can be at the hospital without worrying about him. I think I'll include milkshakes in case that's something she might want. Anyhow, thanks!

      I would check with her first. She may want something like soup, or yogurt or something like that.

      I had meals brought to my house, but I didn't eat them. My family ate the meals, but I couldn't stand very many foods at that time, and also smells would get to me. Even someone warming up chili or something would make me feel sick. And I would be in the other end of the house. Chemo is different for everyone. I would ask.

      After my first chemo I needed bland. By 2nd chemo nothing made out of tomatoes or crunchy vegetables as my was sore. So for me it was bland and soft.

      Everyone will be different as to what their body can tolerate. For the few days when I felt the worse after chemo infusion, I wanted food easy on my stomach like mashed potatoes, jello, macaroni and cheese (from a box), pasta. I didn't want anything greasy or rich.
