It's been a rough couple weeks. I had a bunch of dental work scheduled. Routine x-rays showed a shadow on my lower jaw, and concern that it was cancerous. The result was a bunch of extractions, bone grafts and implants. I am still not 100% and continue to be in some pain, though back at work because I need the money. I am still amazed that I've gone from never getting sick or needing to see a doctor to having undergone three separate surgeries in the last three months, with another one scheduled next month! I've lost 10 pounds, (that isn't a bad thing...I certainly have it to lose!) and have seen the insides of more clinics, hospitals, surgery rooms and doctor's offices in this last three months than I think I've seen in my entire life up to this point! I don't meant to sound whiny...I'm more grateful than I can say that these cancers were caught and dealt with promptly. It's just been a lot to deal with on the heels of the drastic life change I was just barely beginning to process when all this medical stuff started. I hope to be around more now that this latest is behind me. Glad you're all here for me to grouse to!
