Mytten da Tony....spelt it correctly this time too!Mytten da one and all - sorry I've been awol, but the problem is time - feeding now has to take place through the tube (throat too burnt to take anything down it now, including water - that takes about 4-5 hours per day). Then hospital each day for treatment, which is another couple of hours. Add to that sleeping badly and exhaustion - that's my day gone!!
Still, on the home straight now - two more treatments to go and then it's over - will take a little time for the inner and outer burning to heal as radiation carries on for a bit once treatments stop, but the light at the end of the tunnel is most definitely there.
Tony, one cannot begin to imagine what you have gone through.
But it seems that your determination, your positive attitude, and sheer guts have carried you through this, and if ever there was anybody who has been an inspiration, then it's you.
Two more treatments....wonderful news, almost there.
Just been reading the side stories on the link which DW posted,
one there on Michael Douglas, he has battled throat cancer also, and look at him today. He was appearing on Graham Norton show a little while ago and stole the show, at least in my eyes, as I am
a big fan, also of his father as an author...wonderful writer.
I read something very amusing yesterday concerning history, of which I was not aware, and that was when the French joined the Scots with a view to raiding England...however the Scots didn't care for the French, couldn't understand them and said they were eating all their provisions, and the French couldn't understand the Scots, the French left Scotland with the intention of raiding Scotland instead of England....this is my simplified version of the article, I did find it highly amusing the way it was written.
