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!

Staples removed + 1 JP!

Well, the 1 JP and all 38 staples have been removed. I even took a photo of the 2 remaining tubes which go into my belly.

I swear to GOD that when every I get up, I hear this whish of air which I think might be coming from of these very openings. I think it must be the gastic (large) tube that's make swishing noise. Trippy huh?

If you look closely at this photo you can actually spot tiny little stitches on the 2nd tube further down and this is the 2nd JP which actually leads straight inside my stomach; actually both of these tubes go right into my stomach. I have to get these removed in about a week inside the doctors office and in case I go home tomorrow; I will be showed how to take care of these. I can take showers; just short and some water can get onto my huge wound. I just have to dab it dry; so everything will be OK.

I am being monitored overnight because of a small happening right on my belly just below my belly button. See you can actually spot that yes, my staples were just being removed right there. There was maybe 18 more to remove.

I was such a chicken monkey; my honey was there holding my hand while I listened to my iPod full strength as my staples were removed. The tube was the absolute worst. The one on my right was removed (photo down below with the juice in it). It literally felt as if an intestine were pulled through a hole in my tummy. OMG! It hurt like a Bitch!!!!( It sucked so bad but it's over and now the rest will be next week.

I think the big one will be hard but I'm not wasting any more energy worrying about pain, but instead seeing my pets in my home with my loving darling husband. How I love them all! And of course updating all of you as I send my love to all of you! Here's to more of my healing journey! Love and hugs to all!!!)

Uff! Reading that has made my hair stand on end! CJ, you are unreal - so bloody chirpy - I love it. A can't even begin to imgagine what you're really going through here, but the fact that you can make it amusing absolutely floors me.

Chicken monkey?? heh heh - more like Boudica if you ask me. You rock girl, and I hope you're home soon.

Hurray for staples and 1 tube out. Wonderful, wonderful news that you'll be on your way home soon :-).

Thanks so much for calling yesterday. It was so nice to hear your voice. You sound so strong and healthy!

Your belly looks so much better with all of those staples out. ;)

I had one of those tubes removed once too - and it was such an odd feeling - like a slimy worm slithering its way out of my body. Bizarre.

I hope you go home tomorrow. It is so hard to get proper rest at the hospital, and I know it would do you a world of good to be home in your own familiar surroundings.

Big hugs to you!

I am so happy that you are going home. Take care.

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.
