I missed summer. September is right around the corner and I will soon be a year older. I honestly had this fear that I would not wake up from the first surgery on July 23rd, and then I would think how silly that was. If I didn’t wake up how would I know the difference? That was the day the lymph nodes were removed from the right side of my neck and the first round of radiation was put into my tongue via the wire implants. Then the second round of radiation began 2 weeks later on August 6th. My last surgery was on August 10th to remove the radiation ball and the wires. I did have the good Lord holding my right hand through all of this and the prayers from my blogging friends all over the world were life sustaining.
I don’t need to worry about a wrinkled neck anymore as I have a lovely network of surgery lines. I thank God for the fact that I am here to make mention of this.
While I was in the hospital room in the midst of the clutter, etc. I would lie in the bed and I would write blogs over and over in my head. I so wanted to write a blog about my oncologist and I will do that soon. He is such a kind, gentle caring man. I thought so many times how much I would have liked for him to have been Jim’s oncologist. I don’t know that Jim’s prognosis would have been different but at least he would have had a caring doctor.
I did want to let you all know that I am beginning to feel a bit better. I still am not able to chew but that will happen soon I know. I am drinking a lot of Boost, etc. I have lost over 20 lbs. which I didn’t need to lose.
I do have 2 big red tomatoes that my s-i-l’s brother sent to me. I have them in the refrigerator hoping they will last a couple of weeks at which time I will try a BLT.
Thank you to my new visitors. You all have a great week. Stay safe and be happy!!
