Kevin's Dead Cat

After surgery sliced off an entire tumor and 1/3 of my tongue, plus six weeks of radiation therapy, I've been re-learning how to eat, drink, and talk with my newly re-constructed tongue and coping with side effects. But the cancer came back and I don't know what's going to happen next.

Laura's talking too much

Well, she's doing so well that they capped off the tracheostomy and now
she's talked so much she's worn herself out. The doctor says she may be
able to go home tomorrow if she is able to show him that she can do all
the necessary self-care techniques they've shown her. She's excited
about going home but nervous, too. She's had a lot of visitors today and
she's afraid she's talked so much that the the doctor will think she's
too tired to go home. She's looking forward to going home-- she needs a
shower and some new clothes. She's stopped talking now and is resting,
watching the gathering storm(?) of protesters in New York. She says she
sounds weird when she talks, but it sounds good to me.

Take care,
