    Hi boys girls and friends and galactic crew. I have been a recluse since BFN as have been having treatment for head and neck cancer by radiotherapy and chemotherapy and next week is my last week plus an extra day has been tagged on a week on Monday 9th December.

    Been feeling poorly at times and groggy, hopefully I will improve in next few weeks after treatment.

    Hopefully next year I'll come on a visit to Turver Towers and have a bit of a weekend break, come up, spend a day, get a box of fireworks to take home, perhaps visit Mandy at Dinnington and go home Sunday.

    In the meantime, I wish you all a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year if I don't see you all before. ;)

    All the best, Sir Anthony.
    I know we've had our moments in the past but in a strange way I'm looking forward to having some more in the future, lol.
    (meant in the nicest possible way)

    Stay strong and keep us updated.

    Having a few trials and tribulations with my illness still, and still not well (yet), it is dragging me down to hell and back.

    Spent Christmas and New Year at Clitheroe Hospital which was boringly crap to say the least with visits from friends after between Christmas and New Year and watched the New Year's Eve fireworks on TV and got discharged last Friday with home help two days a week.

    Now a period of recovery is the recipe for me until i'am much better again

    Plenty of rest Sir Anthony, and keep the calories up too - that's my advice now! None of this healthy eating malarky please.

    I have to take things easy at mo, soft food is the order of the day i.e ambrosia custard, tomato soup, softly made mash mixed with milk, softly cooked noodles, semolina, rice pudding, and similar. Gotta go in for another scan tomorrow, there's a left over lump still affecting me after all my treatment that is making me occasionally sick......

    You're missing one of your essential food groups there, namely Angel Delight
    Butterscotch is the best medicine. :D

    I am slowly improving but I still get dry mouth and throat at night when sleeping.

    I stick to soft easy to eat foods (not listening to daft Jinn suggestions) and allow such foods to cool a bit before I eat them to avoid burning the inside of my mouth.

    I have to use artificial saliva spray and could have to use it for a while (tastes horrid though) as I have found out that my dry mouth conditions can last anything from several months to as much as a year..... :(
