My dad, Delbert Paul Martin, aka. Audie, was diagnosed with Carcinoma of the Oral Cavity at the end of June 2015. We opted for an immediate life saving surgery that included the removal of his lower jaw bone. He is on a soft food diet, most likely until mid-October while we go through Radiation Therapy. My dad loves to eat. This is a sacrifice that we were willing to make to have him around longer than Christmas of this year. It is out of my love for him that I begin this journey...

Finding anything new and exciting is just not working these days...but, Dad did say the pudding was good, then ok. It was made fresh today for him and I did sneak in protein shake powder. As I mentioned before taste is being effected and eating anything at all proving more difficult. Weight loss is still an issue and continuous week by week. Thank God that tomorrow concludes week 4 of radiation!!! Then 2 more weeks to go. I am ready.
