      I did this job, washing heavy industrial cookware in a hospital kitchen. This author describes it perfectly - the endless grease, slippery orange tiled floor, penetrating heat. I wore a brown one piece uniform, leather work boots, hair pulled on top of my head in a loose ponytail. I was young and healthy and it was brutal. Could not imagine doing it having cancer.

        Agreed. From personal experience, as well, this writer does an excellent job describing the experience including the gloves and the varying ways of filling the machine.

        Never had to do the flip tables to remove gum sitch, though. That sounds awful.

        And add in cancer. Wowza. Bless him. Strength and Growth.

        Such a real, honest read this a.m.

          Praise heaven, I, too, was not required to do the removal of gum! Yes, and honesty is so refreshing and embraced! As is personal growth!
