Immune system-challenged food suggestions

--susan | Dec 8, 2004 10:16 AM

I have a friend in the hospital who, due to some serious chemo & radiation, is verging on neutropenic. (Very low white blood cells. Basically, he pretty much lacks an immune system right now.)

The poor guy is a serious foodie with little appetite and a long list of things he can't eat. (Including *anything* uncooked including fruit and veggies.) Anyone have any experience with this that can provide food suggestions that he might be able to tolerate? Right now, he's kinda stuck with jello. Which he hates.
