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!

UTI infections slowly improving....

Well, I am hoping I can keep those fevers at bay and so far so good (knocking on hard wood). The highest it has been today was 100.3 and that was this morning and now it nearly tomorrow (20 minutes). I'm still suffering from my extreme insomnia so I thought I would try to provide an update on how I am doing in the hospital and when I might just get out of here. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I get to go home tomorrow. Oh GOD I want to go home tomorrow! Please don't make me stay in here for another weekend!

My honey brought in Miss Blue Belle these last couple of days and it sure has made a difference in my spirit being in here. She cheers me up like no other with her smile, her foxy fluffy tail wagging, and just her presence. She is a gem and there's just something that has to be said about animal therapy in the hospital.

Whenever my honey arrives with Blue Belle, the whole hospital seems to brighten up. Many of the nurses stop him in the hall for some good old dog therapy and word quickly spreads that "Blue Belle is here!". Other nurses and doctors will quickly stop what they are doing and just stop by my room for just a minute or two or just enough for a kiss from her. She is a gorgeous little girl to look at and many can't believe how pretty she is. She has that presence about her that you just can't get your eyes of her.

Anyway, I did get bored painted my nails and toenails teal and I was heartened to find that my sister and law even had her toe nails painted teal also and with my initials on her big toes! Wow! I feel so honored! I'm letting everyone know that this month is teal month and that it is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month; Breast Cancer is next month. I keep reading about all of these Breast Cancer events and nothing for Ovarian Cancer; well you will see it here; too bad there isn't anything in San Jose or even in the whole state of California. Not too many know much about this disease that strikes so many women.

Well anyway back to being able to get out of the hospital (I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can at least get out tomorrow or Friday); I really would like to be able to go this year's Bark in the Park on Saturday at Naglee Park in San Jose. There will be all kinds of vendors there; I can get my honey a cool doggie T-shirt (he needs to replace quite a few = I accidentally stained a few of his good ones and would like to replace those). It should be a great time. The normally have herding events and if I get there early enough I might even be able to sign up Blue Belle to herd some ducks or sheep. Perhaps I can get some contact information of trainers so that I can take her to learn now to herd. She could bring Tonto in when ever I ask her too in case he gets out. That would be very helpful.

I did get to talk with my mother for a long time today (an hour using minutes) and my honey has offered to purchase a plane ticket for her to visit me. We finally got our first Tax Refund check in years. Our tax rate has reduced thanks to Obama's plan and we didn't pay as we have the last couple of years (quite a bit less because we are middle class = yeah!). I'm so happy that my mom will get to visit and maybe for Thanksgiving; we will be able to cook a meal together which we have not done in at least 20 years. We did get to spend a Christmas together in 2002. Here I am wearing my Christmas wig. My hair was falling out at this point and I was pretty damned bald at this point. My honey didn't care; he still kissed my bald head each and every night and he rubbed it for good luck. I thought it was very cute that he did this.

I also hope that I will be able to ride on the back of my honey's Harley on Sunday; quite an ambitious weekend I have planned; and all will go to plan if only my temperature stays down. I just got it taken and it was only 99.2!) What a relief! Still fighting that infection. So here's to no more fevers and me getting to go home tomorrow!

am so glad your temp went down,hope you all get to go to park and have a great weekend together. Am praying for you. I went back to work this week and talked with your mom.Can you believe that she walked out of the door for lunchtime at work and a snake was right out side of the door.It wrapped itself around her leg and bit her on her hand when she tried to get it off! She just got it off and threw it. Not a bit upset. I would have had a fit myself. She's a brave person. So are you. Take care friend.

Hi I just wanted to say hi:) I dont even know how I came across your blog month ago. But I am praying for you. You are such a fighter and I admire that.I to understand where your coming from about no one even knowing that teal is the color of OC. My mother past away of OC when I was 22 she was 39. I have a tatoo that reads BELIEVE with the L in teal. I have to explain to EVERYONE what it is for! If it was pink everyone would know. Hang in there girl:)

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.
