All is progressing well with the healing, and I still have no regrets about the surgery. No pain meds now except at night. The drainage tubes are out. Hallelujah! I still need help getting out of bed because of the tearing sensation, but the doctor said all is well.
I saw the hematologist on Monday. He said because of the supraclavicular node, the lymphoma could be stage 3 which would be common for the stage at discovery of lymphoma. At this point most probably nothing would be done as far as treatment. However, the doctor would like to stage more accurately with blood tests and bone marrow tests. This has to wait as I would have to lay on my stomach for the bone marrow biopsy. I have another appointment next month when the testing is supposed to be done.
Life expectancy is pretty varied with this cancer. Some people need no treatment for 10 years or more. The mean survival is 8 to 10 years. However, this disease hits many old and frail persons who may be lowering the mean significantly.
Big healing discoveries are beginning in my life. A new and sweet friend from Basic 2 Elijah House class in Spokane came and stayed the past week with me. She started me on the Hulda Clark program a few months ago which may explain the absence of breast cancer in the pathology report. This friend sent me the stuff to do the program from Hong Kong. Then she painstakingly helped me by email and finally traveled to here to physically walk me through this. What incredible love and sacrifice!
Hulda Clark’s is a very complex program, not easy to understand or follow. To put it in simple terms, Clark, a microbiologist, believes cancer is related to various parasites. She has a program of cleansing your body organ by organ. There is also a diet depending on your particular parasite problems, as well as nutritional supplements designed to strengthen the immune system to defend the body. There are also procedures for cleansing your food to avoid parasites, Finally there is a maintenance program for cancer free persons.
Many have dubbed me crazy for choosing to follow this. Maybe so. Yet, medicine’s only offered treatment for me will be repeated chemos for each recurrence, and they do not offer a cure at all.
Hulda Clark’s program may seem off the wall, however it seems to be harmless and does offer the hope of a cure.
In truth, I am approaching this like Namaan in the Bible, washing in the Jordan river 7 times to be rid of leprosy. He probably thought. Crazy! But he did it out of obedience. I see this as a leading from God, and I am doing it out of obedience.
There is another healing adventure going on simultaneously which is very exciting. I am going to leave you in suspense and blog about it in my next blog.
