hello friends. it’s so weird to be writing this today on Labor Day – the first time i haven’t worked in over 5 years. i think about how much labor it took to pull together our Bacardi Pool Party but how rewarding it was to be walking through the crowd getting so many smiles and high fives. i treasure those moments. it should make me angry to have such a huge event and huge revenues ripped away from me especially now but i find myself proud that we make it look so easy. perhaps now people can see (and appreciate) the hard work i put in to building that event over the years.

i truly believe (especially now) that everything happens for a reason, so if we weren’t meant to have it today then it’s most likely a good plan. lord knows i would have probably still worked even though i’m supposed to be taking it easy and resting in these final weeks of my treatment.

so, my treatment…

there was a considerable snag last week and i wound up hospitalized, which still seems so weird to me because through all of this i always felt strong and healthy. it’s the supplements. and the juicing. and the high dose vitamin c. and the yoga.

either way, i spiked a fever and am still thanking god that i happened to be with my caregiver who knew to immediately call my doctor who said please immediately take her to the ER. if i was alone i would have just gone to bed. it’s so weird to have medical people worriedly doting over you when you feel fine, i still to this day feel great. they told me i was septic and it was life threatening. i was like, does that mean i can order this tuna melt and cheat on my diet finally.

five days later after huge amounts of antibiotics i was sent home with a new catheter line in my arm and an open wound where my infected port was. doc told me she isn’t ordering chemo for me until this wound heals. that could take weeks. this is why it’s not a good idea to have any goal dates or plans when you are in treatment. things usually don’t go according to plan and your body needs time to adjust.

while we wait for the wound to heal i have doubled up on the high dose vitamin c iv treatments to twice a week and added the hyperbaric oxygen to help heal this wound as fast as possible. we are treating it with that medical grade honey and it seems to be closing up ok. while i’m off chemo i’m also back to the baking soda/lemon with hot water. ugh.

doc also went ahead and ordered the scans for this week to see where we are at with the cancer cells. THIS IS THE TIME TO PRAY. i am feeling like i killed all of it but thursday is the PET/CT scan. we will know very soon.

now that i think about it, that went by kind of fast.

since i will have been off chemo for a couple of weeks i am treating myself to more love to fill my heart with pure joy –  and play a show this weekend. i’ll give you more details this week but know it will be free…. and BIG! i can’t wait to tell you more about that.

    Rest, take care of your body (with whatever methods that works best for you, based on your own choices), have quality family time or with your real BFF’s (whenever you can).. (take one day at a time). Aloha !
