A brief note. My 18 month post cancer treatment check-up with the ENT went well...no indication of cancer... there is one sort of mysterious cut on the side of my tongue that is bothersome, but he said it did not look like anything that he would need to biopsy... and that it could be related to the saliva issues (dry mouth) and my tongue rubbing against my back teeth when I talk... if it gets worse... then he'll take a more serious look at it... the other small pains I reported are just random lingering radiation related after effects. The pains themselves are completely manageable, it is always what they might mean that concerns me. He said... not to worry - everything looks good.
So... it never is quite perfect... but I am happy and grateful (with a tiny pocket of small concern)
It has been a beautiful spring and I am walking and doing a bit of biking, and loving it. It seems the older I get, the more the weather can impact my mood. These days... that's a good thing!
An appropriate Chinese proverb to ponder:
A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives roses.
A cyber-rose to you all.
