Day 16: An Easier Day

I’m in the living room while my sons are playing full blast with all sorts of creative construction-type play, a true favorite. Thank the Lord for an easier day. I was quite grumpy yesterday…it could possibly be coz it’s the first day of that time of the month.

I’m grateful that everything went pretty smoothly today – such a blessing for a day when everything’s going “my” way…even if that includes getting a daily injection of laetrile. I’m so over that and I still don’t enjoy the pain that occurs during the procedure. Thankfully, I do eventually forget about it. I could get the shot done on my hand which requires 1 poke every three days. Unfortunately, my detox reactions greatly discourage it as I may experience chills for a whole day. Since I’m slightly feeling better, I may give it a try some time this week & pray that I won’t have the likely chills.

A great highlight today was when Nurse T read “Feeling Like God” aloud while I was undergoing some treatments. We were really enjoying all the great new things we were learning about God & people, especially in terms of discipleship. The book is so deep and intense that it’s hard to go past 1 or 2 chapters without starting to feel bloated…in other words, we had better take time to reflect and put into practice what we read before filling ourselves up with more excellent knowledge. It’s a challenge so that’s why I seem to end up reading it only once a week – it’s pretty overwhelming.

Here’s a very little bite size from the magnitude of insight I’m gaining for Continued…

Day 6: Living with my Emotions

Thank you so much to everyone for the heartfelt prayers and support.  Today is my first “chillax” treatment day since I started the 21-day intensive alternative cancer treatment on March 15th.  Chillaxing means I do about 2/3 of what I normally do.  A bit more on that another time.

It’s afternoon and I’ve had a somewhat emotional morning wrestling with angst over life’s delays…one thing I am learning is instead of suppressing my emotions, I am learning to reflect on them and slowly understand what it takes to align them with Scripture.  One fabulous book that is mentoring me through this new terrain is “Feeling Like God: The Emotional Side of Discipleship – and why you can’t fully follow Jesus without it” by Chris Tiegreen.  Talk about a paradigm shift!  I’m almost half-way through and its message truly resonated with me because deep in my soul, I had always known this yet have conformed with the norm, or what the author calls “Vulcan Christianity” (aka joyless obedience or being like the Pharisees).  I’m sure many of us can relate.

Mia’s email to the family…

Hi Friends,

Mia is still in treatment and although she does have internet access she is minimizing her contact with the “outside” world.  Anyway below is an email she sent out to the family about 2 weeks ago and so as to get to know what she’s thinking and doing I thought (with Mia’s permission of course) of posting this here.

It’s a little long and intense but this is what it’s like in reality.

thanks again for your support – gil/admin

P.S. I’ve changed some names for privacy reasons.

Dearest Family,

I finally met the Doc…here’s a some history on this particular divine appointment… Continued…

Detox Is Key

One of the things I failed to realize, which I hope others can avoid, is the absolute importance of detoxification in the pursuit of healing.  I was so focused on the cure that I did not fully grasp how much I needed to clean up my body from all the toxicity it had accumulated over time.

Of course, in the early days I had not realized the possible causes of my cancer since I was unaware of certain factors that contributed to my condition.  I  pretty much felt like what another cancer patient said, “I felt like I just stood up, and someone threw a cancer ball that hit me.”

At that time, I thought I was fairly healthy in my diet and others thought so too.  I do know I was lacking in the exercise department, and bordering on the side of overdoing-it with my part time jobs and other multi-tasking habits.  All this plays a part in toxicity and wearing out the immune system.

So, in the early days I knew detox was important but not that important.  Now that I’m just 10 days away from my 3rd month of operation-c or OC (what I will now name this journey of healing from cancer), I am putting credit where it is due which is to detox my body.  It’s time to get clean!

(Note: One book that shed light on the importance of detox is A Cancer Battle Plan Sourcebook by Dave Frahm)
