After much prayer, consideration, research and discussions with family, I have decided to not go on the 8-week Alt Med route and am starting radiation in about 1 -2 weeks.
I hope that I have made the right decision. There really is no “right” decision, as they both have their merits. Hopefully, the radiation will destroy some more of the tumor and then perhaps I can go towards the Alt Medicine later.
I need to gain weight and get energy. If I can remove some of the tumor near my stomach, perhaps I can get back to eating rather than the feed tube. I can tell you a feed tube is no way to exist! So say prayers for me in this decision.
I send hugs to all of you reading this. I especially send warm thoughts for those of you that read this that may be facing health concerns. I get a lot of email from people going thru health issues and I have inspired them. I hope that you see that cancer is TOUGH and tough on the body — but I will NOT let it take a way my spirit or the fight I will continue. So continue your fight also, never losing the goal ahead.
