Time to swallow my pride. Just been diagnosed with Laryngeal Carcinoma and the medical expenses up to now have been overwhelming with all the money they want up front. Haven't even started treatment yet. In and out of doctors and procedures and everything else I havent been able to work a regular week and it's going to be even more difficult to get back on the road in the truck once treatment has started. I find this hard to start this and ask for help im stubborn and full of pride but right now to keep up with medical bills and keep myself and family in a home and everything else this was reccomended to me by a friend. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Well things were goin too smooth i guess. Just went to doctor today and found out my health insurance has been cancelled. So now I either gotta pay outrageous cobra premium to keep it going or go through marketplace and start entirely new plan which means new deductibles and out of pocket starting all over again.....if it aint one thing....was hoping to just be able to rest and heal up and have my scans in June to get all clear and go back to work. May be going back to work before June and postponing scans. Just don't know what to do kinda bumfuzzled and my brain is all over the place. Always something i suppose.

Well I've made it through 27 radiation treatments only 8 more to go. The burn on my neck has hit with a vengeance and my throat is cooked. In the past 3 weeks I've eaten maybe 7 or 8 poached eggs and 1 boost and half of a premier protein shake. Last Thursday I had a failed surgery at them trying to put a feeding tube into my stomach and then they tried my intestine. Since they couldn't hit either target they ran a feeding tube down my nose into my pouch. That lasted about 12hrs and I pulled it out Friday morning after radiation. I couldn't handle the gagging every time i tried to speak and every step i took it made me gag. Tomorrow afternoon I'm going under for another surgery and there's only 2 surgeons in the hospital that can perform whatever surgery it is and they guarantee they will get a feeding tube put in successfully. I hope they do. 3 weeks of no food or nutrition has sucked and I'm starting to feel it. Some medical equipment outfit is supposed to be setting me up with some sorta fandangled pump that I will be hooked to 24/7 and it will constantly be pumping formula into me. Guess it'll sleep in the bed with me between Miss Roxi and my wife or maybe hang it from the headboard I dont know lol. I've really held up and breezed through all of this until now so I ain't gonna bitch or complain or try not to anyhow. I just know I am ready for it all to be done and finally whip this cancers ass get healed up and go back to work. The mental stress and toll it's taken on my wife and other family members breaks my heart. All of yall who has been supporting us and helping us and been there for us I will forever be indebted to you. I can't thank all of you enough. Many a times I've gotten messages with words of encouragement from yall and comments some of yall have left that has brought floods of tears from me. The battle is almost over there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Yall cross your fingers and toes and lets hope tomorrows surgery is a success.

Just a quick update. Things are goin south right now. Today was radiation #20 only 15 left to go but haven't been able to eat anything in 6 days and not been able to get much liquids down and hold it down. Most likely will be gettin iv fluids in mornin after radiation and apperantly sometime this mornin after my treatment im guessing my radiation nurse got ahold of someone after she questioned how i was doing and when i said not good aint ate in a week and ive lost 30lbs since starting treatments an appointment was made for me for Friday with the gastrointestinal ppl to have a PEG feeding tube put in. The pain ain't the problem there's minimal pain still it's just everything tastes rancid and i just cant physically make myself swallow and hold it down. See what happens in mornin durin my weekly follow up.

Radiation #12 in the books yesterday. The remnants of chemo in my system finally took my eyebrows. Still bald like Mr. Clean with no hair growth on me head my mustache or beard lol. Yesterday was weekly Dr visit with my Radiation Oncologist and it could've gone better. Was sick in the room while waiting for doc to come in was froze to the bone and felt like crap all Wednesday and Thursday and pretty much slept all both days. The rads have affected my taste buds now and they're gone and now the burn in my throat has showed it's head so we're starting to feel the effects of radiation. No burns on my skin yet not even showing signs there at all so that's good. I was dehydrated at my follow up and he wanted to keep me and run some iv fluids. I told him to quit swearing at me. With the wifes help I convinced him I was ok and promised to increase my fluids so reluctantly he let me go. The fatigue has been stupid but gettin up at 4am every mornin to get to hospital and not feelin good has played a huge role in that. We're 1/3 of the way through radiation and bucklin down for the rest of the ride. I think the "easy ride" I had with chemo the radiation is gonna make up for it but we're gonna get er done. Looking forward to this weekend and getting a break from rads and gonna just sleep and rest and get ready for another week of treatments.
