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.

Next Monday

Laura's scheduled for Monday to have a more permanent feeding tube installed. It will go directly to her stomach and should actually be more comfortable than the temporary one she has now. The surgery is very quick and she should be able to come home the same day--no hospital stay, which is a relief.

Hi Laura and James. I wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you. I worry about you, even though I am thousands of miles away and we have never met. Keep taking care of yourself. You have so many people on your side.

Hi, Laura and James, thinking of you and glad to have the news. Are there two Carolyn's writing to you?? I'll be Carolyn E, for East Coast, you could say.
Strength and courage, all you need, is what I wish for you.
Good night, sweet dreams.
Carolyn E.

Hi Laura,

I used to be a regular at Cole's.. an inveterate Hawkhead ~ Randall's girlfriend. I was "California Dreamin'" today online (searching out things Downtown LA and came across (thanks Rob Waller for making that phrase oh-so colorful) your blog. I am sending you hugs and happiness from the east coast with knowledge that your life is meaningful and rich.

Mona (who loves the "Alice-down-the-rabbit-hole feel of Cole's)
