Hi again, We have another new development. My mom's incision which has been healing wonderfully (the one thing that has gone well), now has two or three pustules on it (they kind of look like large ingrown hairs). Is this normal? The care facility has reported this to her internal medicine doctor in town. No one seems too concerned.

In addition, she has developed thrush on her tounge--probably from all the antibotics she's been on!! Would/could this cause her problems with eating?

Also, she can't seem to brush her teeth with toothpaste without vomiting or almost vomiting. What's going on here?

On the bright side, I think she is beginning to keep food down.

Thanks for all of your insights in advance!

Have a blessed weekend! Kim
