A message I got from a friend so touched me
There is a Facebook group called Young Tongues. https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=young%20tongues%20private%20group
They are fairly new and need more members so take a look….but I digress
My friend sent me this picture of the cake a young lady’s boyfriend gave her for her six months after treatment for tongue cancer
Today I had ask appointment with my surgeon Mr Kittur. I was hoping I’d get away with a phone consult but no….the booking office rang me and arranged a F2F. I have got so used to long distance monitoring that when a physical event presents itself it brings back all the anxiety of the past. I check myself routinely. I know what to look for but……….. HOORAY ……..he has a good feel of lymph nodes and a look in my mouth and I’m free for another six months. Recurrence is more common in the first year, the longer I remain in remission the better my chances of living. I’ll take that.
The bees said thank you too and left Mr Kittur and Dr Banner, the oncologist looking after me a couple of jars of honey each
I wasn’t going to indulge in posting interim reports on me but you know what…..Wales is basking in a really well earned heatwave after a miserable Spring. The sun was shining. I was on my own in the car. I’d just got an All Clear, at two and a half years. So I pulled off the M4 onto the Welsh country lanes I know so well, wound the windows down, put my favourite Steely Dan album on full blast
and sang (badly)all the way home.
