I don't think we've had the pleasure of speaking before but it's nice to meet you despite the circumstances. Looking at the old saw of "You can tell
a lot about someone by the friends they keep" from a different angle, the integrity and intellect of those who are your friends (the people who care
and respect you) says a lot.
Your attitude is encouraging and my belief is that the role that plays in how things go is far more important than most understand. That is my
primary reason for wanting to ask a question. I, of course, share what others have said regarding your illness. The last ten years have claimed too
many old friends, the majority from one form of cancer or another.
There's no need for a lengthy reply, I just found myself thinking of my friend, Ken, after the radiation they gave him for his tumor that
metastasized, anyway, and used his spinal cord to travel to the rest of his body. None of the doctors had warned him of the possibility and he found
himself almost completely without the ability to taste foods. For a while butter and corn still came through so he enjoyed mashed potatoes and corn
like it was a good steak. He kept saying, though, that if he could taste just one more juicy cheeseburger he'd find the money somewhere to pay
Several have suggested diet and supplements. Are you still able to enjoy a good meal? Keep it as short as you need to, Yes or No will be fine. It
is my hope that you have many fine meals ahead, not only because they are one of life's simple pleasures (especially when cooked with love) but also
because they will help keep your body strong.
