Physician Heal Thy Self

Where shall I begin. When I opted in to be part of a clinical study I did the research on the drugs and their side effects. Little did I know that I would be hit so hard with so many side effects all at once. Well, its all or nothing with me why would this be any different. It is my hope and desire that the research being done in this study will truly benefit and be a win win situation for all future breast cancer patients

The day after my 2nd infusion while on my treadmill my big toes began to hurt I thought it is my tennis shoes, it progressed into what is called HFS. I began with the ice packs, mineral salt soaks double dosing on the tree oil. It seemed to help and I was thrilled. After feeling on top of the world on my Mom's birthday the follow day I began to spiral I thought OK time out I will bounce right back well that wasn't the case. I had plans to go to the Botanic Gardens in Denver on Saturday with friends even though my feet and hands were hurting I said yes I can do this which probably was not one of the wisest choices I have made. Do I regret it no, the gardens are beautiful and the tropical rain forest is spectacular thoroughly every moment with my friends Valerie and Rachel.

Cycle 2 in Phrase 2 Still Shinning with My New Dew


Humor is a must with my journey so I decided to insert this video just for kicks from my chemo infusion last Friday. Enjoy and laugh

OK so my journey continues with many things behind me.
11 days into chemo my hair felt it was no longer fit to be a part of me, do you believe that. It happened very quickly and within two days I looked pretty much like the character from Lord of The Rings. It was devastating Thank God that was just a one time deal and happened very quickly, within 3 days I was bald and received a new dew that looks like my real hair. I even gave my new dew a name Isabella well, actually she named herself and I accepted. It took me 4 days to process and not to cry wondering who this person was as I looked in the mirror. Affirming I am not my hair yeah right give me break well, in a short period of time I was able to get it, really feel it, believe it and understand I am so much more than my hair body etc. I am finding for me that processing on all levels at lightening speed really makes a difference as well as my connection to Spirit and oh yes a sense of humor in all things big and small. By the way I am told I have a really cool head hmmmm my multi dimensional self is really shining and I'm feeeelin it. My sister Susan sent me beautiful silk scarves on the days I don't feel like waying my new dew. I have worn 2so far and getting the hang of how to wrap them hmmmm the newness continues.

I gave my port a new name "my magic box" how cool is that. As I was about to receive my infusion I said to the Nurse I am so ready for my Jack Daniels now hmmmm thinking feeling let me upgrade to something better and as I said that liquid Light was singing in my mind. Wow I felt and resonated with all of it especially having a magic box fully activated inside my body. Always turning it into something good seeing the bigger picture even though I may not have 100% clarity which is probably a good thing for me as my guidance team knows that all too well I would never want to stay in body.

OK Here I Go

Happy Feet and Hands

My Mom who turned 82 on July 8th,2009

I had a great weekend even though I was exhausted from chemo on Friday for the most part it didn't seem to stop me on Saturday and Sunday. I rented 2 movies after my infusion "Atonement" and "Ink Heart" I highly recommend both if you have not seen these. "Atonement" was the my choice for Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday I watched "Ink Heart" while on my treadmill. I did 6.5 miles with out missing a beat I know my meditations and invocations I recited as well as the magic of Ink Heart while on my treadmill were the key elements.

I completed another Spirit Art Portrait as well as 3 new painting for Phrase 2.
