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.

Feeding tube, again

Laura's gastric feeding tube was installed this morning. The procedure went smoothly. She's home already and resting, tired and a bit uncomfortable, but recovering. The discomfort should go away over a few days and with any luck she won't be so tired, now that she can eat more. She's able to use the tube right away and will be having regular liquid meals and all her medication. Thanks everyone for all your comments.

Hi, my name is Jesse and I used to be overweight. In fact, I lost all self confidence at some stage and all my friends too. Now, a few weeks later, after finding Hoodia-Product, I feel much better because it controls your appetite. So http // helped me. Do you realize how nice it is? Not having a weight problem. Finally I can smile again. That is why I am so happy. - Please visit http //
