Back in the hospital

 

baby

I am back in the hospital for the third time in 17 days! It feels like Groundhog Day. Thought it was food poisoning the first time from bad sushi, but it may be more involved than that.  They think  now it may be some obstruction from the pancreas so I think we will have more tests.  I am trying to keep my thoughts positive, but it is rather discouraging.  It is horrible just not knowing what is wrong with my GI tract.

I get home from the hospital each time after they get me eating again, and I feel fine.  Then that evening or the next day I just get these horrible pains in my side & stomach and usually throw up some.  Nothing seems to help solve it from medicines, anti nausea pills, etc.  I feel so weak that it is hard to walk around then.

I hope to have some definite answers from this visit.  I am waiting for the GI doctor to visit & see what tests we can run.  I would very much appreciate your thoughts & prayers… this is a puzzle.

Thought I would post a FB photo from my “FB history” they sent today to me of my bare butt on a rug.  Hope FB does not mind nudity.  🙂 I think it said I was about 7 months old on the back (don’t have the pic here in the hospital, obviously.)  I do remember what Mom wrote on the back tho …. Billy Bachmann (I was always Billy until about 12), 7 months old, blue eyes, brown hair and 7 teeth.  Well, Mom, fortunately I still have blue eyes, all my hair and all my teeth!

I send hugs and a smile to all of you.  Can’t wait until we solve this and I am stronger & feeling better.

Finally feeling better today!

Wow.  I have not posted for 11 days here on the blog or on Facebook.  On January 13th I ate some bad sushi from Winn Dixie (not real bright!) and I have not felt well since.  Nothing to do with cancer I don’t think (altho my immune system may not be right for raw fish!), but I went to the hospital on the 14th, stayed two days, came home and went back to the hospital again on Saturday the 21st.

I am not sure I have ever been that sick.  I found out in the second hospital visit that my Potassium was very low and felt very faint, so I have been getting pills for that and also coating my stomach with other medicine.  I just got released this afternoon and I will lay low for a few days.

Boy, if you invite me for sushi, I will pass in the future!  It will be bait for me from now on.  🙂

 

More Good News

The Ultra Sound test showed little activity at all in the blood flow of the tumor (great!) and also it has reduced in size again from 3.6 cm to 3.2 cm.  It started out at 6.4 cm, by the way in June.  And that is with the last 8 weeks of nothing but the Alternative Medicine! It feels like the tumor is dying inside from all the massive protocol I am doing that kills cancer naturally  and I hope to not need the surgery or radiation. Not out of the woods yet by any means, but all good news.

So I am now planning much more to continue my trips and my life as I knew it.  Still don’t have anywhere near the energy I used to have, but I continue to see progress in that also.  Day by day!

Have a great weekend.  My mind is feeling much more free now, as I thank God for the progress we have made.  I say “WE” as I feel that so many of you people that care for me are praying & sending warm thoughts and that helps me get stronger each day.

I send warm hugs back to all of you!

After several weeks of concern, some really good news!

I have been on “pins & needles” for several weeks now about the progress of my treatments.  I have not had any Chemo, have not decided on radiation at all, so for over 7 weeks I have only done all my extensive Alternative Methods protocols.  So I was “out there” with no traditional medicine to back this struggle up at all.  But I do firmly believe that all I am doing to CURE the cancer is helping.  But I needed a blood test “marker” result to show they are working.

I took the blood test Monday and have waited –not too patiently — for the results.  And I got them today.  My cancer marker CA19-9 went down from 40 to 37.5.   Praise the Lord!  That is good news indeed.  It means the cancer is not very active and that is exactly what we all want.

I firmly believe that the Alternative Methods are working to reduce (and hopefully dissolve completely sometime) the tumor & cancer.  But I also firmly believe that so many people praying for my recovery has made a MAJOR difference.  And I thank each and every one of you for your prayers and well wishes.  They give me strength and power daily to move against this dreadful disease.

Off to my Ultra Sound today to see the size of the tumor…. hopefully, it has shrunk more.  That also would be wonderful news.  I will blog when I get those results probably Friday.

But for today, I thank God and also so many of you for your continued support both mentally & spiritually.  When a person gets cancer,  he or she values each day so much more than ever.  May you value your joys & successes of each of your days.  Cheers!

A Very important week in my cancer fight!

It is Sunday the 8th now.  Tomorrow, on Monday, I get probably my most important blood marker test ever and am praying for good results!

It has been now over 6 weeks since I have had anything at all done with traditional medicine.  I have had no Chemo, decided to wait if I need radiation, and no other traditional methods at all.  I still feel really fairly healthy and strong.

But I have done even much more alternative Methods recently —added more “heavy hitters” to my already generous attack on cancer.  I now have started really concentrated amounts of Laetrile ( from Mexico), hemp drops under my tongue several times a day, creon – which is a pancreatic engine replacement, and Metatrol – which is a wheat germ extract.  These have all been added in the last 4 weeks.

In addition I have continued so many Alternative IVs of heavy duty Vitamin C, ALA and Hydrogen Peroxide into my body — twice a week of the three IV drips.  And I continued with probably 15 more pills to make my immune system stronger, alkaline water only to drink, lots of vegetable juicing, so many Detox pills and many other pills to destroy  cancer cells  inside.  It has all been very expensive, but my Alternative doctors and my support team feel that all of this is fighting the cancer and can dissolve the cancer tumor without radiation or surgery.  I continue on this natural fight, hoping & praying it is destroying the cells inside my body!

That is why this CA19-9 blood test marker and the Ultra Sound Xray I will have are SO VERY IMPORTANT this time.  If my numbers stay good and low, then all of these methods ARE working and we will keep up this fight this way.  There have been many cases of these methods dissolving the cancer inside a body and I hope, pray and firmly believe this will work for me.  Unfortunately, if the numbers are rising or we get bad results, then I will have to reconsider all the traditional stuff that really does not have a good track  record itself in curing this caner.

So I ask all of you to please send me prayers and warm thoughts on Monday as I have this test & scan.  I will probably not know the results until Tuesday or Wednesday, so I may be more than a little nervous.  But my spirit will stay positive and strong — my will is to fight and win against this horrible disease.

I can again tell each of you to live each day happy & fully.  I was — I thought — perfectly healthy until June 25th of last year when I heard the horrible news from a doctor.  Any of us can have our lives changed “in the blink of an eye”.  So I ask all of you to appreciate all that you have and the health that you too often take for granted!  My wish is that all that read this to take a renewed look at how blessed we all are and be thankful.  Life is so fragile & precious and you realize that even more when you hear bad health news.

I ask for your prayers & warm support as I enter this important week!  Cheers…
