Cracked down to the tip touching the nerves. Already necrosised! Dentist was so pleased it came out in one piece.
They treated me so well today at Flinders Park Family Dental Practice. Squeezing me in to do it today. Aris has seen me through 2 cancers now and Tracey at the desk is always so lovely. The 2 dentist brothers that helped me today Lawrence & Marcus were so thoughtful and even Aris triple checked b4 it was pulled to see if that really was the only option.
They all loved my teeth so much I think were more upset than me about extracting it.🤣 I definitely felt the love 💖 (discount applied & all).
Currently on panadeine, nurofen & endone. I could seriously promote pain killers for the drug companies. Endone has finally hit the sides.
I just ate Heinz spaghetti and no joke got an entire spoonful of it stuck in my healthy/happy/hole!
Happy days xx

I was 21 and I was planning a wedding, buying a house and had a job interview for the job of my dreams on my 22nd birthday. You see I was being made redundant and had to find a new job by August. Especially with the new mortgage now. It was April. I worked for CML and my new job was a done deal. All I needed was a medical. And with that, just like that....my life was turned upside down and I was diagnosed with CML, ha ha, I know the irony. My hematologist had a laugh at that too. I had Chronic Myeloid Leukeamia, which was normally reserved for 70 year old men. Quite rare for a young adult to get, so how would they treat it? I underwent two separate trials until finally it was decided my best chance of survival (all be it only 50% chance), would be a MUD BMT (matched unrelated bone marrow transplant), now known as VUD Allograt (volunteer unrelated donor). I was told 21 years ago the chance of finding a match was 1 in 20,000 (and that is everyone was on the bone marrow donor registry). Scary odds. So being the risk taker I am I said "go for it". They found a match and that was my first miracle in this journey. The second miracle was, it worked - new blood type, two different DNA profiles and the miracle of medicine was reborn inside me. The third miracle is my son.
25 years on, I now face a new challenge. Breast Cancer. Certainly not the first person to have cancer, to have invasive ductile cancer, hormone receptive and HER2 +, or to even have a dual diagnosis. But this is not another Webiste about a cancer survivor, this is just my excuse to finally publicly write. Along the way I am hoping I can share some insights I have learnt over the years and at the same time, give you a good belly laugh.
