A lump in my throat
Over the past few days my throat has become a bit more inflamed and swollen. Not sure why, perhaps it's my stupendous weight loss program, but I am going in to have the oncologist check it out tomorrow. It constantly feels like I have a small platform resting on my esophagus and swallowing is a bit more difficult. I just don't want it get worse.
Monday was the worst day so far in this journey. You know it's bad when you can't finish brushing your teeth for fear of an eruption. I know now what to expect for the next round of chemo and maybe will request to be knocked unconscious for the first day without steroids (small, wan grin). So maybe the trolls didn't win but they scored deeply.
