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...

Cream of Wheat
After dental surgery this past week, we are back to a soft food diet...no biggie for us. Dad went grocery shopping yesterday and came home with this product of which he enjoyed 2 servings today. He is making great progress though strides in the weight department still proves difficult. Lymphadema therapy keeps us busy and soon his new teeth will be as set as they will ever be!
I continue to be amazed at "modern" medicine and the blessing of still having him in my life. As I reach a major birthday milestone this week I am so glad to have my dad here.
