Why write such mundane stuff, you ask? Well, partially to practice writing once again. A couple of weeks ago I would not have been able to get this far without a dozen typos or frustrations. So this is partially a practice for me. You may find me repeating things at times but that’s part of the healing brain from I have been reading.
6am : Wake up. Wash up, light up some Triloka Ayurvedic Meditation Incense meditate with my new best friend, Bodhipaksa. He and I meet mentally every morning first thing. He is soothing, mindful, and very approachable.
6:45am: Spend time with Deepak Chopra’s Heart Sutra Meditation.
7am: Break. Kids still asleep, I make some delicious swelling-fighting green tea and sit and let it sit for about 20 minutes while I stare at this backyard. Not a bad way to spend quiet mornings.
8am: All hell breaks loose. Kids are up, I am up making healing, protein shakes with non-GMO Vanilla Spirutein, which includes organic blueberries, blackberries, a banana, and ground flax seed. The kids LOVE this stuff so I keep making it.
One my blog’s commentators called my efforts ‘malarkey’ against this cancer. But hey, if it empowers me and helps keep the swelling at bay, then why not give it a shot? Ultimately, the power is within me and inner circle. So I am doing what I can to remain stable or make these treatments work as much as possible. Seeing that the latest drama is related to old, dead tumors, to me, is a great sign. MDX-1106 has trained my immune system to work on most of my tumors.
On tap for today: More positive visualization, making my road bike a stationary once again, and getting back on. The more aerobic exercise I accomplish, the stronger and better I feel.
