Great Impression

I  wanted to share this with you. Through out my life I meet amazing people that also leave great impressions on me. I love people. Dear Cynthia, Today as my husband and I were chatting about future trips I thought of you far away in Norway and how much I really enjoyed chatting with you on that transatlantic flight I took this summer. I’m not sure if you would remember me, but we sat in the very middle of the plane chatting about healing and positive energy work and it really made an impact on me to meet someone with such similar thoughts as mine. Even though our meeting was brief I often keep you in my thoughts and send positive healing energy your way. I hope that your health is doing better and that you’ve been able to spend a lot of time with...

Low Carb Diet

My day on Monday was a very long day at the hospital. We got there at 6:30 until 23:15.  The chemo and all went fine and we were exhausted and went straight to bed. This morning at 5 am was time for me to shower and off to the hospital. I couldn’t eat anything and was wondering if I would be hungry. I started my second chemo Bay 80- and could not eat until 16:30 today. I ordered a tuna salad. I still need to stay on a low carb diet for today which I don’t have a problem with anyway. They took every hour blood samples for my glucose and everything seemed to be fine within the range. Me Gappy Happy now I can eat and go home…. I left the hospital at 18:00 today. Tomorrow one more fasting for my blood specimen. Then at 8:45 Cardiopulmonary that is...

I’m now at Melanie’s house. She is in the process of moving to another apartment. Bigger, this is so she has room for us. I’m all excited for her move.

Taurolidin

I know i need to write more but I’m so tired at night that i m happy to fall asleep. Last week Elke came to visit me. We are having a good time here and she is taking good care of me. Elke is shopping last minute before going on her vacation. Wish she could stay longer. She is leaving again tomorrow to meet up with her husband to go to Zanzibar. Sunday I also brought my mother here with me so I won’t be alone and she is having a blast right hahah. No she is here with me every day and trying to make me comfortable. It is also hard on her as you remember how it is to be with me while waiting all day. On the weekends I drive to see the kids or go to my dad’s house in Limburg. We then do laundry there and have some good Dutch cheese. As it looks like i will be...

Lymph Nodes Have Cancer

Friday I called Cynthia to see how she is doing. Her mother stays with her during her treatments. She told me the lymph node that was removed on Monday, came back postitive for IBC. They say all her lymph nodes are infected. They recommended she stay there for 2 more weeks to finish her hyperthermal chemo for the skin cancer. The lymph node that was removed was being tested to see what chemo regimens would work. But they also told her to start looking at other options at MD Anderson. We already have appointments for complete staging work in November but we may go there sooner. The only option there is a clinical trial, if she still qualifies. Next week we will see what the doctors say in Germany. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers.

Vein Surgeon

Today they took my lymph node in my left groin and sent it to pathology. By Wednesday i will have some results they said. It is sore and walking makes it a bit harder. I came home and slept a little bit. That felt pretty good. Last Monday they used my new port and everything was looking good. They removed my stitches today also. Professor Mumme did the work on me. He is a vein surgeon. They also did the testing for chemo treatments. They found some that is working for me. Tomorrow I get my first session of hypnoses and sjamaans trance, he will use a combination of techniques. i am so excited to work on my stress level. I had to look at 8 stress situation in the past 18 months before i got diagnosed. And at first it is hard to think of but I made the 8. Mother...
