My life comes with new things this week.  My food is now puree, tonight was ground chicken with gravy puree, mashed potatoes, and puree pears, didn’t taste bad it’s more the thought of it.  I still have some sense of taste, but my saliva glands are starting to go.  My throat is getting very sore and talking for a long period of time is tough and will get tougher in the coming days.  The real concern is the two sores under my tongue, they, just really hurt and having real trouble managing that pain.  I will see the dentist tomorrow and see if there is something he can do for me on that front.  Now it’s just come down to managing energy and pain, and trying to get through the day one day at a time.

Later for now
