Plans for the Week

Well my mom arrives tonight, so I will pick her up from the airport and then we are in for a busy week. We plan on working on the vision board, probably getting a plan and meals laid out for healthy alternatives that can be on hand all the time that are easy to prepare, even when cooking just for one when Scott is working. We may look into other alternatives as well, like macrobiotics and maybe some juicing. I think getting some "superfoods" as a part of my regular intake is a good idea, and wheatgrass isn't really that bad...

I hope we can get the house cleaned too (not that she's coming for free labor). I've been working on a few rooms, but I do tend to tire very quickly these days, which is frustrating. Should you really have to sweat when cleaning a sink? Seriously! I also have a burning desire to go through ever single closet and cupboard and get rid of junk, probably a reaction to wanting to clean everything out of my body that is cluttering it up (I'm talking to you, tumor). I already gathered all my long hair stuff together to give away since I have decided going back to long is not really an option, between my age and my newfound freedom from hair products!

The good news (for me) is she will be here for my chemo next Monday so she can see what the layout is and how the whole setup works, which I think will help her understand what goes on. In the meantime I'm working on gathering all my medical data together so whe can take it back to UCI for me for the second opinion/review I discussed awhile back. I don't think a doctor necessarily needs to examine me, since all the important data has been captured on tests, but a review of treatment options is a good idea.

  1. Hi Heather - I've just been reading another good book about healing and I'm sure you've already heard about this author - the book is called "Why People Don't Heal and How They Can" by Carolyn Myss Here is an interesting quote (there are so many in this book that I've earmarked): "Although a spiritual practice can help your spirit grow and improve your overall health by grounding and directing you to healthful, non destructive behaviors, neither is it a guarantee of perfect health. As we have see, it may even challenge you to endure an illness as the vehicle through which inspiration and a deeper sense of the power of your spirit can emerge." - page 125

    I'm rooting for you all the way!
