There is nothing my husband won't do to to assist with my treatments at CMN Hospital. How do you take your green coffee enema? Straight up! We have had a good but challenging week. The dose of blood thinners prescribed in the US caused my pick line to bleed so we have reduced he amount given daily. Also a side effect of the radiation can cause partial lung collapse which we knew was a risk. They had to put in drain for my lungs and keep it for several days. Treatments continue and I love Dr. Payan. He is so humble, nurturing and positive....very spiritual as well. Feeling grateful... I will try to blog more often!
Well yesterday I had my a CT scan and completed my last rads to neck and brain. I'm grateful that is over. They did rush out and pulled me into the ER to let me know that I had 2 blood clots on both lower lungs. So I was admitted to Exeter Hospital overnight and I'm on blood thinners right now....hoping to get home today.
Good to find this now before we flew anywhere for sure. And I'll be taking shots in my stomach every day to prevent clotting in the future. Apparently that can happen with cancer I didn't realize that. But I've been less mobile moving around with my legs being numb. . Apparently that can happen with cancer I didn't realize that. But I've been less mobile moving around with my leg so that explains part of the issue. I felt a heaviness in my chest, but thought it was from the nerve issues.
So as we get ready to fly out here Tuesday to a fully functional hospital across the Yuma, AZ border into Mecico where a wing is dedicated to cancer care. It will be round the clock care for 28 days, it's called CMN Hospital of if you would like to google it. We have all got our passports and are still on track for her to say departure :-)
There's not much in this world that can keep me away from the chance of coming home cancer free! So as we get ready to fly out here and we get our ducks in a row with everything we need to do we are still on track for our departure :-) My friends and family have made sure we will get ou!
I just want to say that my husband has been absolutely phenomenal and if there were ever any thing in a relationship that needed healing, this situation has completely healed our relationship. It's ridiculous when he think about the things you used to argue about that were nothing. And I definitely feel amazing love, tenderness and devotion that is overwhelming at times. I know he will do everything for me to save me. And it's a wonderful comfort to know we have not given up.
Here's a photo taken two years ago one week after my double Mesectomy when we went to Huey Lewis concert :-) it was a fun night and it's been the key to keeping it going living in the moment every moment that comes.
I wish all the amazing moms in my life, who are showering me with love, the best Mpther's Day! 😘
Here is a quick link to my You Caring page for those who would like to assist my efforts take this adventurous trip next week! The Universe and God has provided the people to support me and make this opportunity happen. Thank you all for this amazing chance!
Well after some careful consideration and looking at different clinics and hospitals we've made a decision. Will be going to the CMN Hospital on the Yuma, Arizona border. For 28 days of treatments. It's not a day clinic but a full hospital servicing over the past 30 years. There's a special wing dedicated to alternative cancer care and the treatment list is impressive. Many treatments that are not available in this country. We feel this would be the best course of care daily for 28 days and then at the end of the 4 weeks I intend my immune system to be back on-line. I will be doing a stem cell boost of my bone marrow the last week. I know of a women, Shannon Knight, from The Truth About Cancer documentary, who had stage 4 metastasized into locations of her bones and her lungs and she came out of there completely cured. Her oncologist said it was nothing short of a miracle, but she said no it was just clean hard work! She said no it was just clean the hard, aggressive treatments that only attack cancer, boost and prime your immune system, become a whole, healthy being once again:) It is possible and I am planning on being one of the exceptions like Shannon!
My heart is overflowing with such amazing support from friends and family in my time of need. God and the universal power has been here for every need. I can not believe the grace and love of this experience. I love you all and even those who I don't know as well who have stepped up and surprised me with the humanity of spirit! Here's a recent photo of me with a friend last Saturday night when I enjoyed a show in the moment of living for today with joy!
