Still alive and kicking

Contrary to public opinion, I am still above ground and breathing. I have put in too much time at work so am tired and non movement on my part resulting in sleeping.

I still have not gained any weight so still weigh in at 130 pounds. I finally got what I hope the the final loose tooth chip out of my jaw last week. My jaw is still sore but according to the dentist , it is healing just fine. My feet (and fingers sometimes) are still tingling big time so according to Dr Corwin, I need to start taking vitamins. Either I am getting used to having no salva glands in my mouth or some of them are coming back as I am able to eat more without drinking. Probably a little bit of both. My mouth does not feel as cottony as it did a month ago. Had my flu shot the day after I was exposed to the flu by my grandkids. I felt like I had the flu this weekend but think it was a result of getting the flu shot. Have to take the N1F1 shot when it comes out in November.

Lucille has been great in fixing me food that will help me gain weight. Biggest problem is that when I get to office, I do not get home for lunch to eat what she has fixed. Hopefully after Oct 15, I can take a couple of hours off at noon to eat. I need to as you can count the ribs on me.
My grandkids even baked some cookies for me!

Weather was cool (cold for me) and had a fire all yesterday afternoon. So I worked on finishing a project while enjoying the warmth of the fire.

I don't think Iwill ever get over the feeling of having cancer. Every time I have a little ache or pain, I think about "what if it is cancer again?". But will trust in the Lord that he is taking care of me as he has been doing in the past. You just have to live each day to the fullest. Only God knows your timetable and there is nothing that can be done but to just live every moment you have. We take life for granted when we are healthy. But when one gets sick, it makes me think about life and where I am. If you are healthy, don't take life for granted. Live like there will be no tomorrow. Love your family and friends. Take the time to smell the roses and enjoy what you have.

Hope all of you enjoy your week. I know I will!
