Still living

I am happy to say that I am still in the land of the living and most happy to be here. I have been working absolutely flat out. I am on six twelve hour shifts a week at the moment. I am pretty lucky though, not many people get a round of applause at the end of a hard weeks work.

As far as my health goes I feel pretty ordinary!! When I sit down at the end of the day it is almost impossible for me to stand up again. My hips ache so bad that it is excruciatingly painful to walk and even sitting for too long causes discomfort. I have also developed an old problem that I use to have. I use to bruise really easily and they were great big black and purple things. Well they have come back again. I am probably just being to rough on myself and don't realize it!!

I go and see the dental oncologist on the 23rd of this month to have my teeth looked at. After radiation to the lower jaw I have some problems with dental decay. I find this really annoying because before this I had perfect teeth. In the last Month my saliva glands have also started to dry up. The radiation oncologists told me that this would probably happen. This can cause more problems with decay and it also plays havoc with your digestion.

Other than that I am fine and life is being good to me. I hope it is being good to all of you as well
