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.

I don't want life to imitate art. I want life to be art.

I'm such a lazy-ass. After spending the holidays cooking up a storm, I've yet to prepare a meal that consists of more than oatmeal w/toppings or yogurt w/toppings. I can now taste raisins, chocolate chips, apricot jam, and vanilla yogurt. And even though I've been eating bunches of watercress for weeks now, only since yesterday have I been able to actually taste it.

So I finally got satellite tv installed this afternoon. Unfortunately, the cable goes through a window I have to leave a little bit open. Until Big Eric drills a hole through one of the window panes tomorrow, I'll be freezing my ass off in a 60 degree apartment. But I have loads of comforters, sweaters, and two space heaters blasting from both sides of the bed.

My first follow-up appointment with the radiation specialists is this Friday. I need to find out which doctor writes out the prescription for my teeth gel.

Shucks (blushing).

Thank you for the kind words. Since I can't rent my friends out, I hope that my blog is helping someone who's just been diagnosed. There doesn't seem to be a lot of support groups out there specifically for people with mouth cancer.

The funny thing is that when I read "inspiration" I imagined all my friends doing spit-takes. They know how much of a cranky bitch I can really be.
