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!

I won an Award!

Well today started like any day that I'm counting down till I get to eat and to get rid of all these wires, tubes, bandages, shots, etc and so much more. We woke up late this morning but we did get everything completed by 8:30am instead of the 7am schedule. Our sleep patterns are a little off for now. We had phone calls about nurses coming by to draw blood.

Aziza called and my honey answered the phone and was totally straight up with her; he did not back down and told her exactly why he did not want over; she understood. Then another nurse called; he interviewed her and asked has she been in Mexico in the last week or month (swine flu). She had been just days ago; he told her "no" and that he wanted another nurse. We had another one call and he interviewed her as well. It was so cool to witness this loving man taking total care of me.

The nurse who had arrived was unable to get any blood drawn from my picc line and she did not have another back up kit, rather than her wasting a trip; my honey and I went to the lab. When we got there, we had to do the usual; grab a number and wait our turn; my honey was with me the entire time ensuring that I didn't touch a thing. He had my ID, Member Card, and blood order. No touching counters and he walked with me to the booth to get my blood drawn. He turned my seat around until I was comfortable and then massaged me because he knew how nervous I get with needles especially if veins are not easily found. It was a good thing that we came to the lab, because my favorite phlebotomist was working. She could find a vein almost effortlessly and painlessly on me everytime. I was stoked!

When I got home, I went to check my email and I found out that I got nominated for a Kreative Blogger Award by TC of the blog "Animals the Give Pause". I really like her blog because she often reflects on how special animals can be in our lives and their actual emotions, funny stories that prove that they are smart and they do have it together more than we think they do.

I am honored by this award and am glad that my blog is making a difference for some!) - Thanks TC!

To keep up this tradition, I am to tell you about seven of my favorite things.

1- My husband and soul mate Jimmy
2- My family and friends
3- My pets (they kinda get close up there with Jimmy)
4- Waking up each day to a new day
5- going snowboarding
6- going to the beach with my honey and Blue Belle to play frisbee
7- to be able to eat (that's my tummy talking - GOD I'm so freaking hungry- 4 more days!) - Normally it would be Random Acts of Kindness (I like that a lot!)

Now I have to pass the award on to seven of my blog friends. In no particular order, here are the seven! (copy and paste rocks!)

HarleyBlues2007- Sir Paul McCartney & the Beatles Guest Band Purple Melon

GoAskKatie - A Mix of serious & silly

AriaZink - Aria - the woman - the mom - the coffee junkie

LoriMents - lori-ments

Congratulations all of you! I have so many more I would like to list; but many I have listed before with other awards; wanted to give everyone a chance!

Gotta go hook up to the bag and get my icky shot! Honey is taking such great care of me and since the bag is so heavy when we first change it; he helps me to the bathroom by carrying it and I have to sit immobile for the first 5-6 hours. He makes extra sure I am comfy on the couch and I have total control of the remote!) How I love my honey and all of you who are praying and sending me those great healing vibes that I have been feeling lately!) At least I can get up and walk around and it won't be for too much longer; only a few more days!)

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.
