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!

No Snowboard Adventure for me....

Everything was set; doctor said it was OK, I had everything washed and ready to go and then my honey started getting a sore throat. Colds just happen to be going around so we didn't want to chance it. I took good care of him making him Chicken noodle soup and grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, going to the grocery store for other items he needed, made him his TheraFlu and some tea for his sore throat. I did everything I could think of for someone I love so dearly. I have to take good care of my honey!)

Relatives will be arriving on Friday the 13th and our house still appears to be inhabited by pigs. We still have tons of cleaning to do and a snowboard adventure just wasn't realistic enough for us this weekend. It just would not have been responsible to go.

Oh I wanted to go and had even considered just a day trip by myself but the snow report doesn't look so good and there isn't any fresh snow or hasn't been for at least a couple of days which means most of the fresh snow is either tracked out or frozen. No ice for me! This would have been dangerous for me since I do prefer the fresh powder over the ice. The temperature these last couple of days has been warm; exceptionally warm; more like t-shirt weather. I had to take off my hoodie both Saturday and Sunday and today is a little bitter cold and windy. Not like yesterday or Saturday.

I did get to have a few enjoyable shopping trips with Miss Blue Belle as I picked out a whole new bathroom theme for our downstairs bathroom. We are retiring the old Sun and Moon Celestial Theme and in with the Bay Area themes. The downstairs bathroom now features a Pigeon Point theme with some light houses, beach, and seashell.

We have a Bay Meadows Photo to hang and have also been looking at tapestries; mainly Thomas Kincaid (I'm obsessed). He supposedly lives just a few miles from us in Los Gatos. Why not and his kids happen to go to the same school as a former car pool buddy of mine?

We already have a golden gate photo that I took a few years ago of the Golden Gate Bridge. I photoshopped it to the point that it looks like a painting and then picked out some matting and a frame. It's our home together and it's small but we love it!

Now to my health.

Well it has taken several days to get the barium out of my system. I've been going number 2 quite often and it's so incredibly weird to be shitting out white matter that looks like Soft Scrub with Chlorox Bleach. Sorry for the honesty but at least my system is still working!) It sure would be ultra cool if that Barium could clean my toilet like the Soft Scrub.

I plan to call my doctor tomorrow to find out when we can get together to discuss our next plan of action. My system has been making the loudest noises ever while trying to digest and I pray it keeps working. It kind of reminds me of a scary movie where the pipes keep making loud noises (like grinding up bodies or something). Yeah! That's exactly what my intestines are sounding like!) The gases built up can be scary in that the burps are still rather loud at night. I'm not passing gas as well and that usually takes work and it's painful on my abdomen to try to do. It's still quite sore in that spot (yeah it's still there).

If that's the case; why the hell did I want to go snowboarding in the first place? Because I'm one crazy cancer patient who just can't get enough fun!) I guess I would rather die having fun than to die sick in a hospital and my doctor knows this very well. With this disease it's best to cherish your good days as much as possible.

We had sushi last night and I didn't eat a whole lot but I did moww down on the ginger and the miso soup. I also ate some salmon and some California rolls. A cheap date I was.

Almost forgot: I did get to take Miss Blue Belle to the park to play some frisbee which was very fun. We even gathered a little crowd cheering at each frisbee she caught. These little kids and their parents were entertained more so that the usual of going to the park. Blue Belle got 4 Days in a row; getting exhausted at the park!) She's one happy pup who has 1 more fun days to go! Yes, I am still taking my Tuesday off! Lots to do and icky taxes!!!!!!

I wish you could have received the fresh snow we got here! I want it to go away. I'm so ready for spring. I can't wait to get out and get my garden going. I only tried skiiing (never snowboarding) and I about killed myself. LOL

As for the health stuff, I think you have a great outlook on things and explain yourself very well. I'm keeping you in my thoughts:)

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.
