Yesterday I completed #7 – have 9 more to go. Will finish up in September – I hope.
All my numbers were “beautiful” again as the dr. said. So my organs are keeping up with all this. I still thank my supplements for this and God of course.
The cold capping has kept 100% of my hair so far and I am so incredibly blessed and pray it continues. I have had no major shedding at all which can happen for some. Haven’t had to shave my legs for 2 weeks tho – kinda liking that part. My eyebrows are still going strong too. hurray.
I shared this pic on fb yesterday as my wonderful sis inlaw sat with me and brought me snacks and took my pictures. Thank You Jan!
Anyway you will notice there is a maxi pad on the part of the cold cap that does the cooling part. The cap has small tubes in it that I assume liquid nitrogen goes through to do the cooling down to 35 degrees. This pad is put on for a very important reason. There is a cloth/foam cover that goes over this and it is important to get the top of the head as close to the cooling as possible and typically our skulls are not to even on the top so if there is any type of a dip the pad helps to make better contact in that area. So even tho it looks incredibly funny before they cover it know that it is for a good reason. lol
Here is what the finished product looks like and I have to wear it and look like an astronaut for about 5.5 hours. So it makes for about a 7 hour day total with all the premeds they give me.
I look a bit puffy due to the steroids they give me for potential allergies. They make me retain water terribly. So even though I am drinking 1/2 my weight in ounces each day I am feeling very bloated. yuck! The scale says an added 12lbs in a few weeks time. boooooo!
Although I am using some outside sources other than doterra for natural support it is very expensive. Just a consult with no IV vitamins treatment is about $425! Ugh! And of course insurance won’t go near any of this kind of thing. But IV vitamins have shown to help stop cancer and regress it. So I would really like to do B17 and C but it’s another $100 for each infusion on top[ of the 425. grrrrrr. And with limited time for work it is hard making less than before this all started to keep up. I try not to let it bother me but there are constant reminders every day.
Trying hard to stay positive. The ultrasound on Tuesday showed that the tumor in the left, when compared to the MRI (kinda of like comparing apples to oranges tho) has confident results of the tumor shrinking so the dr is confident that the treatment is working and we are continuing on.
The MRI before I began in May showed measurements of 7 x 2.6 x 3.0 cm.
The ultrasound on Tuesday showed 1.8 x 1.1 x 1.6 cm.
Not real precise because it is 2 different testing modalities but radiology says it looks positive so I am going with that.
So I will continue to plug on and do both western and eastern medicine to beat this.
Thanks again for all the prayers and positive thoughts. You don’t know how good it makes me feel every day.
