One Year from treatment

Hi Everyone,
I have just received GREAT news. The results are back from my last PET/CT scan. I AM CANCER FREE!!!!! One year has passed since I finished my treatment. I am feeling wonderful. Swallowing is going extemely well. Dry mouth is still a problem, which may improve slightly with time. The foods I have a problem with swallowing are beef, pork and white meat chicken. If enough gravy, cream sauce or other liquid is added to my food I can swallow almost anything else. To eat crackers and bread, all I do is drink a lot of liquid. My taste buds are returning to normal, yet some foods play tricks. Chocolate, as in a Milky Way, tastes good, while M&M's taste like wax.
My weight is staying steady at 169 pounds. A weight I would like to stay.

Above is the family at Thanksgiving. I enjoyed all the food with lots of gravy on everything.

I would like to thank the doctors and staff at the Milton Dance Center for saving my life.

Thanks for you support and prayers.
