Support and messages from people I don't even know!

Transient

Over the past few days I have received some lovely emails of support from friends of family and people that I don't even know.

I can't say just how nice it makes me feel to read them, it certainly picks the spirits up! But I have to say I don't feel like I deserve them really, I have been so lucky through all of this, there are many out there that have had it worse or indeed are going through much worse right now!

What I will say is, no matter who you are, no matter where you are and no matter what you are going through, you are never alone - somebody somewhere will be thinking of you!

To those who are suffering now or about to go through this - I'm thinking of you!

My wonderful dentist

I saw Sally Wilson today - first time since the operation.

We had been in contact over email and I had updated her on my progress.

I went in, we had a hug and I thanked her once again for finding the tumour and sending me off for further investigation. I showed her my obturator, she hadn't seen one since dental school so she was quite taken back I think with the size of it.

She was however very excited to see into my mouth, she even asked if she could take a photo - how could I deny her? Sad really when you think about it, didn't want to take a picture of me, just wanted to see up into my brain... ho hum.

Anyway, she gave my teeth a clean, she was very gentle with me. Although I am biased, she is a very good dentist, never caused me any pain and has always looked after me well, I totally recommend her if you are local.

I will continue to see Sally for my normal dental checkups and she will look after my existing teeth. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
