So sat in sun with my wife and decided to open a bottle of bubbles two glasses Champagne glass after not having a drink since last November, thought I’d be ok as only have a sore throat and eating soft food.  How bloody wrong could I be I have a brick in my throat.  And heartburn.

    We have all pushed the boundaries a little too far on occasions and lived to tell of the experience. 

    After my ops I found real ale much more to my taste.  Now, post chemoradiation I am longing to experiment with alcohol once I am off the opioids - 2 weeks and counting for them to taper off!  Bubbles may be too much initially, although sparkling mineral water is OK, so there is hope.  But I definitely want to experiment with direct ingestion of alcohol through my g-Tube, which the community dietitians say is commonly done Laughing

    Journalist John Diamond was a friend of my first husband. He never gave up partying even when he was dying of throat cancer and that’s exactly what he used to do.
