Dry mouth and snorkeling

I will be taking a beach vacation in June and will have the opportunity to do some snorkeling.  However, I started wondering how my dry mouth would effect my ability to snorkel.  I wondered if my dry mouth spray would help me get some enjoyment out of the experience.  Does anyone have any experience with this?  During the day, I have to have water around unless I'm chewing gum.  With gum I can get away with no water for about 20 minutes or so.  I usually wake up and spray my mouth during the night at least 2 or 3 times.

Induction chemo with monoclonal antibody (cetuximab)

Try hard to find things that taste okay so you can maintain your weight and swallowing during radiation to head and neck.

If you are religious - focus on your family and pray and remember God is always with you. If not religious - focus on your family and getting through it so you can continue to be in their lives.
