After waiting for over a week to hear from the KU Med Cancer Center and little to no communication, I've decided to pursue treatement at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
They offer a holistic approach, integrating mind/body, nutrition, naturopathy as well as chemo/radiation and other more traditional treatments.
I need to be happy with where I'm getting this treatment, to save my life.
My friend Amber recently sent me an email - which I thought I'd share here, as it is helping me cope. "Just know that you are never alone. The Bible tells us that treasures are found in the darkness. Time will tell you what treasure is to be found for you through this. We grow in hard and difficult times and God wants us to lean on Him and come to Him and trust Him. Maybe He is trying to pull you closer? Only you will find what the treasure will be. Just imagine yourself in His hands, the safest place imagineable. Trust that He cares for you and wants you healthy! We are praying for you daily."
Thank you - my friend. I'd highly recommend checking out her blog also, her wonderful entry on January 29, 2008 - truly lightened my spirit. Her Etsy shop is also a great source of inspiration of vintage goodness.
I'm including one of my favorite pics from the holiday season. It's me, holding one of my beautiful nieces, Lillion Alice. She has chubby cheeks like me!
