Been a while

Hi All,

It's been a while, which is a good thing. Like I said at the beginning of this whole thing... no news is good news. If there's stuff happening I will post about it. If life is just 'going on' then I'm happy not to think about this.

Meanwhile... Rebecca has been on the hormone treatment for a couple of weeks and so far the side effects haven't been too bad. She has been a little more tired than usual but that's about it. She is eating really well and learning how to balance her PH. It seems to be a constant battle but when she needs to; she brings out the big guns, kale and chard. She’s doing a great job of resisting the sweet stuff and as a result is loosing weight in the process.

We had an interaction the other day that you had to laugh at… talk about bursting someone’s bubble… We met a guy who decided that he a had to wax poetic on the fact that Rebecca looked SOOOO healthy; she’s obviously SOOO healthy… Well we had to tell him. It took the wind out of his sails. But the funny thing is, she really does look great, I’m guessing it’s because she’s eating so well. It makes you wonder what’s going on inside.

Meanwhile the next big milestone will be in the new year when they test Rebecca again and see how her tumor markers are doing. If things are good then she should be able to stay on the current treatment plan as long as she seems to be stable. Meanwhile she can keep working on the alternative treatments that hold the promise of a cure. We will be meeting with a Doctor (MD, acupuncturist and homeopath) on the 29th who is meant to routinely cure cancer. We’ll see what he has to say.

In the interim we have both my dad and Rebecca’s dad coming for flying visits. Rebecca’s dad flies in a couple of hours after mine leaves. Then we head of for a 3 week driving trip through Baja, Mexico. We haven’t booked anything; we’re planning on just driving south and going where the whim takes us…. Viva la… Viva.
