A friend of mine from High School and also on Facebook sent me this compelling video of a child who really is ahead in her years of wisdom. She tells it like it is "Stop being greedy and think about the future". I think this all the time and am trying in my own little ways of recycling, riding my bike, composting waste in my house, conserving water, changing out my light bulbs and whatever I can do.
Each day is a new day to try something else and to make important choices which can affect the future. If we can all work together and make our own effort, maybe we can achieve these dreams. We don't need to waste more than we use. That's how we got in trouble in the first place. You can't take all those valuables with you when you die. Really what is most important and what are our priorities in life?
UPDATE ON CHEMO
I also got to speak with my chemo oncologist / doctor about not wanting to continue this treatment. He asked if I could give it another chance so that we could see a true trend (if the CA125 (tumor marker which measures the Ovarian Cancer Protein) rises or falls. We need a pattern. Right now we have two. If it goes up 4 points then this called doubling and is a significant factor if this continues and then becomes an 8, then 16 and so on. Cancer patterns usually double at any rate if the cancer is growing. We will see and prayers are being said that the next CA125 will be lower. This is what I have been told in this whole fight and understanding the results of my blood counts.
I have to go pick up my chemo (horse pills=Etoposide) tonight or tomorrow. I have a blood test on Monday and Chemo (intravenous= Avastin) on Tuesday. Oh boy and then I start work on December 2nd.
Phrase to meditate on: "For those whom are always courteous and respectful of elders, four things increase: life, beauty, happiness and strength."
