I know it seems as if I’ve been missing for a while because I haven’t written any new post lately. The truth of the matter is that I needed some time, yes time to reflect. The last post “Precious Time”, I somewhat had to vent and air my feelings in order to remove the frustration. Even though I haven’t been writing, I have spoken to some wonderful friends who truly believe in my decision and more importantly, trust God. Continue reading
The last week or so has been some what strange. It has been filled with what I call pings and pangs. I’ve had aches in my knee and thigh joint area. It feels like a quick knife to that particular area that strikes then goes away. The lymph nodes in my chest have been up and down with swelling again. I had two days with an upset stomach which made it hard to drink my juices and I had to resort to eating bread to calm the queasiness. I have no worries because I know that the body with its miraculous healing powers given by God, goes through healing reactions. Healing reactions are temporary symptoms that occur only on deep healing regimens in which the body retraces or goes back and heals old infections, wounds, injuries, or other imbalances from the past. Many are related to eliminating toxic substances, healing chronic infections, or metabolic shifts that take place as a body heals and its vitality increases (Lawrence Wilson, MD, 2013). Despite all, I have given it all to God and continue to feel really good physically. Emotionally, it’s a whole new story. For those who have or will chose this same route for healing be prepared because there will be people who will not support you or have the same level of faith. It could be the very person who you may have loved and supported through thick and thin. This hurts more than words can express but you have got to stick to your guns to stay focused on the path God has given to you.
I knew the decision to not have chemo and radiation would upset some but all I asked for was support. Continue reading
Quick health update: as of today I am doing great. I feel awesome, that’s all because over the last few days I have really gotten back into my juicing. I figured that it would be the best way to get rid of the wheezing completely. Although I have not returned to the full fledge 10-13 per day, I do have a goal of 6 juices per day along with my vegetarian diet, from you know God’s original menu. I also have introduced soursop tea 3 times per day with no added sweeteners. FYI: sugar feeds cancer!
I must admit, I was not totally clear on the full direction of this blog in the beginning. I knew I would keep everyone abreast of my health and how I am doing while celebrating God in the mist. I knew I would take you on the journey in my healing from cancer totally trusting God with the provisions he had already promised to us all. As each day goes by and I ponder on how God is using me in this “turn of events” in my life which some would call tragic, I have found fortune. I have found this fortune by listening to that subtle touch or nudge on the shoulder by God that we all sometimes ignore. Well, I didn’t quite ignore it but I did say..Who me? I have never reputed the fact that He is going to use me for His purpose though this trial, I just didn’t know to what magnitude. You know they say He has a sense of humor….So this is how the conversation went (between me and God). Please know that He blessed me with a sense of humor too: Continue reading
