WARNING: Some of the Content here may be Objectionable to some. I have this blog labeled as "Adult Only" as a common courtesy for those who may easily be offended by Adult topics such as the Truth, Down to Earth topics, realities of living with Ovarian Cancer and/or any life threatening disease that goes along with it; Sexuality, Medicinal Cannabis, Profanity, and of course plenty of unpleasant body functions are also discussed here. This is a very tough battle for which I don't intend to hold anything back on what I am facing.

This blog is very personal and comes from the heart of a real fighting cancer patient who wishes nothing more than to live for all of those I love my own will to live, and my love of life. While sometimes I might be on heavy medication (prescribed by my doctor) and occasionally I might write about things or subjects that one may never even think about or consider; so please consider that as well. Yes; whacked out things might even be found here; but I mean everything in all good intentions.

This blog is not at all intended for the faint hearted, those who lack a sense of humor, have no idea what down to earth means, greedy mean people, and/or those who don't know how to share the world with others, and especially those who are unable to easily put themselves into the shoes of others. This blog is mostly about my journey of living my life in the best ways that I can under the Golden Rule and appreciating all of the GOOD KHARMA that comes my way! Never take anything in this world for granted; especially family and friends!

My first infusion for this series....

I thought I would be up and ready to update last night but here is my update from yesterday. Here I am getting my my first infusion of Avastin yesterday at 3:30pm and it was done by 6:30pm. I must have fallen asleep due to the Benedryl (to keep me from having an alergic reaction), but I was knocked out cold. My husband came and picked me up at the hospital at 6:30 pm, took me home where I konked out until 10pm when he awoke me to take the other chemo pill. That's a good hubbie to remember that, because I would have slept right on through and forgotten to take the chemo pill. He came upstairs to where I was sleeping with the pill still in the package, foil pulled back so that I could easily grab the horse sized pill and a nice large glass of cold water. How sweet he is to take care of me like that. I never take any of that for granted and am thankful for this each time.

I came home and slept another 10 hours before coming to work this morning. So far I'm feeling good! I still have my hair and I'm not feeling sick just yet. I hope to feel good on Friday for the A's Dog Days of Summer!

Here is a little video of Blue Belle enjoying her favorite baseball team, the Oakland A's! She is pretty smart and has been so excited and happy this week. She is either excited about the game on Friday, or she is excited that mommie will be home for 2 months on Medical Leave. Not sure which one yet! I know she loves to watch baseball and she loves her Oakland A's!

When I got home from work, I found this on my front door step which was from a caring good hearted co-worker. This is the kind of good Kharma that I live for.

My techniques and treatments work simply for me and may not produce the same results for others. Cancer is a very tricky disease in which it is very different in everyone it touches. No two cancers are the same just as we humans are not the same. What works for me may not work for others.

I love life and expect to live for as long as I can. I intend to use those treatments that do work for me which includes medicinal cannabis. I'm still alive with this disease over 7 years later because of this miracle plant and as long as I have my medicine available; I intend to survive many more years. I hope one day the Federal Government will eventually grow up and be led by true leaders who represent the people and not just coorporations; real people who live by the Golden Rule "treat others how you would want to be treated". I also hope the Government of the US can finally learn to admit that it has made a mortal mistake in making this life saving plant which is provided by GOD and does indeed have the ability to provide all of us with food, fuel, clothing, shelter, and medicine; a mistake that have made is that it is illegal. Yes, it was a mistake out of greed, ignorance, and racism that this miracle plant is illegal. This is a confirmed fact and we should all know and face it.

Cannabis is not at all harmful and in fact quite the opposite. Perhaps our economy can once again grow as it has in the turn of the century by making this life saving plant legal once again.
