I apologize for not blogging for a long time. I just got wound up in every day life and then the technology age caught up with me. This computer was in the shop for a week and I am still having problems. My laptop is toast my wifi hit the deck, but they are just excuses.
I hope you are all doing well. My is a tale to come. There has been much unrest in the air with many natural disasters and some not so natural. We will not dwell on there here except to say prayers and love to all who lost loved ones in the various incidents. It is hard on us who are left behind here. There is only one consolation, they are in a much better place.
My week has been very busy with doctors etc. Unfortunately I had a relapse of my MM. I am still good, looking good etc. My only complaint I was noticing some sciatica pain. It became gradually worse with numbness in my groin. I thought I had a bowel problem and the specialist explained why it could not be the bowel.
This all started about 5 weeks ago. The various doctors were puzzled as my labs no increase in disease by blood work and other than the pain just seemed the same. I must admit the pain became severe and I am finally off strong pain medicine. The original 'bad' spots from my myeloma were throughout my body, brain and skull. However the worst ones were on my lumbar spine and my iliac bone. These 2 spots were now causing the pain and MM had resurfaced. It is a devilish disease. Yes because I appeared to be doing so well I cut down my natural supplements. I have come to realize this devlish disease likes to trick you. So now I have rammped up on PolyMva and curcumin, Minerals and vitamins.
I met a new doctor who resides in S America? I think. He has some wonderful new natural treatments. His régime for is intense, but as I already do many of his suggestions, I just added some special ones. He is saying Magnesium is vital in helping cancer. Keeping the ph in body and stomach in alkaline condition, using digestive enzymes and natural foods, strict diet, adding special Magnesium bicarb capsules and interesting enuf, selenium. I am adding his Magnesium Ideas and selenium. Klaire labs has a formula called Bi-carb Formula, which is touted me on and so I bought a bottle of capsules. Eat a lot of raw food, fresh homemade vegetable juices etc.
So will be able to let you know how I do.
My pain was extreme and I agreed to 10 mild xray treatments, which has lowered the pain considerably, one more to go. My body is not strong in the bone area and this was a risky choice, but I guarantee the pain can kill you.
There is so much to be thankful for and I send good tidings to you. I know this is a setback but that is all it is. I will overcome and with God's help be guided thru this.
I am blessed with a wonderful husband who truly takes wonderful care of me.
Will keep this up on a regular basis.
I have invested in a Neat desk scanner and that is a couple of weeks work. I started out telling you about my technical problems, well they keep coming. 6 months ago I purchased A HP scanner fax etc, it totally trashed itself yesterday. I now own an Epsom. It was an expensive blow up as I could not find my receipt. (Who throws receipts for big items away, not me) My messed up memory has put it somewhere odd. Had to bite the bullet on this. It was nearly 50% off so that helped.
Take care all and be blessed.:)

This same semi wild rescue dog, blue healer lab, became our constant companion, enjoying a life of luxury and running the hills. He later became my guardian when I was so ill I could hardly get out of bed. Each instance of my downward spiral, was accompanied by this dog sitting by my bed day and night. He is gone now but what a loving caring dog he was. I am sure he would be happy to know how well I am doing. He was abandoned from a farm and went miles each day looking for food. Eventually the farm neighbors took him to the shelter where I found him. He was an ungainly dog with huge feet. The shelter said he was 4 months old but he really was 7 months old. No one wanted him as he was going to be rather large. There were much cuter dogs.
He suffered bleeding bowel for 6 months and was agitated, unfriendly to strangers and did not like close contact. He was very opinionated. We once went on a trip, for a couple of weeks, and when we came home and he came back from the kennel, he was upset. We had a golf cart to run on our acreage, and my husband and Monty dog, went everywhere together. Well we had locked him in the garage while we went to breakfast. (He was a bad boy following us in the car if we did not lock him up) When we arrived home he had destroyed the seat in the golf cart. Now did he destroy his seat, oh no, he destroyed my husbands seat. Over the years he mellowed and we got him another companion named Boots. She was the exact opposite , fearful and wanting to be cuddled. (She was abandoned on the street near us and we took her in)
These dogs gave us so much love it impossible to say the impact on our lives. We had them stay in garage at night with a doggie door and it was warm and cozy and cool in the summer. Occasionally they were allowed in side, and then they wormed their way in more so we set up special beds for them in the living room. They were not allowed on the carpet-we had plenty of wood floors.
When I took so ill my husband often closed the bedroom door, one evening Monty decided he had taken enuf of closed doors. He came and laid by my side of the bed. We felt so bad we made a bed for him. In the day they would sometimes go outside but come pm, there he was (I was extremely ill the first winter) . He never left till I got considerably better. Boots was extremely caring also but showed it in a different way.
Over the years I had a few very bad relapses and there the dog would be by the bed. Boots cared in a different way. What a balm it was to my tortured soul (pain does that) to have someone to watch over me. He held a special place in my heart.
I was feeling much better and we went on a vacation; by this time we had a loving family we left the dogs with (I think they thought it was a second home) . When the dogs arrived hone, upon our return, I was horrified to see his back flank, nothing but a raw opening with no fur. The wonderful family could do nothing to stop him biting the area. The mystery was later solved when a couple of weeks later we had a visitor who was psychic, and he and the dog, had a chat. Poor Monty thought I had died as I was away for 10 days, and somehow I had not conveyed to him I would return. He told my friend he would not bit himself anymore. I was in tears..
One does not really know how animals handle grief. After that I was careful to tell the dogs we were coming back. Both dogs passed in 2011. They could not live without each other.
I have just finished reading about a dog named Cleo short for Cleopatra. Written by a New Zealand lady who lost a son age 9, in an accident. Her grief knew no bounds. The cat coming to the house was a miracle. A short while before he passed the boy told his mother something that led me to believe he knew he was not going to live long. He had gone to choose a cat and it was the runt of the litter. It could not come home as it was too small. Much to the mothers dismay, the lady with the cat turned up 6 weeks later and did not know she had lost her son. However she had another son, who when he saw the cat would not let it go. He used to tell his mother the cat spoke with him and gave him messages from his brother. They had the cat 23 years and many miracles of healing took place, directly connected to the cat.
Many of you who are ill have your pets, who provide you comfort. My friend Maryann had her dog almost taken from her recently. A coyote savaged the dog. Everyone wanted to put it down, she persevered. Now the dog is recovering rather nicely and she has her companion back again. She too has a serious illness but that dog knew she could not stand for it to depart and kept himself here for her.
My other dear friend Paula, who passed on a year ago, had a wonderful dog Buddy who gave her much love and pleasure in her terrible pain. Unfortunately I have not heard how they are doing but I know that dog was devoted to her.
Animals give us unconditional love. Love is a very healing element in our lives. We long for comfort in our pain and sorrow..they offer themselves freely.
I will not have anymore animals but I cherish the bond I had with Monty. (My health does not allow me to mentor another dog) We need to treat our friends and loved ones as the sacred animals treat us. Do not underestimate their power to heal.
The hospitals and homes who have dogs visit know the healing power. The children's hospital often have stories of great bonds for the animals and children in helping them with their recovery.
I thank God everyday for my healing and being able to experience such a wonderful bond with one of his creatures. Many blessings to all!

We are blessed with another spring and another year I am thankful to be still here. Had a great 2012 with my supplements sustaining me. I only had 9 weeks of sub-Q chemotherapy in the 9 years I have had this disease. My supplements are seeing me through and I am very grateful. Only a tiny % of MM is showing. My labs are almost normal again. I am feeling great and accomplishing more.
I realize how far I slipped with my bouts of active MM and now I am more clear headed, have so much to catch up on.
I am greatly favoured with my health and thank God for his healing hand. I have enjoyed trips and visits and now feeling JOY again in my life. It is sometimes hard to explain that you are happy but don't have that zing for life you once did. I want to start my garden but need help. We are going to plant vegies so we do not have to suffer thru the pesticides and GMO that people put in our food. The growing time here is limited so will do the best we can. You also have to be careful of the plants and seeds you put in the ground. If they have been altered the same will happen, poison one's food.
I love my flower garden and need inspiration to get it going. The daffodils are almost ready to bloom. My neighbors had some a couple of weeks ago but they have a direct sun spot that is not on our lot. Most of the pictures here in my blog I took and mostly my own garden. Happy Easter to all of you and may you find health as well as chocolate bunnies.
A reminder of something to stay healthy with. Vitamin D Level needs to be checked to avoid the onset of disease and cancer. A local doctor was faced with death and he started on his own anti cancer regime. It worked for him when all the big cancer hospitals gave him up for dead.
Basics were healthy diet, no sugar or alcohol, rest and no stress. He took these supplements 4 times a day. Pure brand mushroom mix Reshi/Shitake/Mitake then Special Pure brand curcumin and Artimisinin. So something simple can help you all.
I am trying to cook and plan meals more healthfully. Simple meals like sauted fresh fist with Lemon oil salt and pepper, coleslaw salad and later a bowl of fresh fruit. It is said apple is one of the few things one can eat with a meal and not interfere with the digestion.
Young Living Oils are special for me, a little more expensive than some, but pesticide and GMO free. I use lemon oil to wash my wood floors and give a pleasant odor. I also take a drop in a glass of water a couple of times a day. If I am having nausea, I put 2 drops in a glass of water of the peppermint. These are simple things but work very well. Lavender and peppermint together can help pain. Lavender can heal burns.
If we use our natural resources we can accomplish much. Have a great Easter and blessings to all!

Our healing vacation began in February when we spent several glorious days in the sun and away from freezing temperatures. We also enjoyed the benefits of really fresh food for our stay. We went to the local farmers market and stored up on Papaya's, bananas and other delicacies. Yum !Huge limes, avacado's, fresh tomatoes, all grown locally. Our hotel had a daily supply of fresh juices and fruits and freshly made food including locally caught fish.
If we could all live this way we would be better off. I can't wait for spring and planting of our garden.
Hawaii has become very expensive so we made a lot of our own meals and shopping at the farmers market was a blessing. I even bought local oils to rub on my bones.
Our local MD was telling us how he overcame his cancer. Started in his prostate went to his bones. He had treatment but it did not work so he made his own formula. He also was very careful of his diet and cut out sugar. It is not easy but death or sugar is often an easy decision.
He took the following to help boost his system and knock out the cancer. Artimisinin 4 caps daily, Pure Brand Curcumin 4 caps, and 4 caps of mushroom mix. Reshi, Maitake and Reshi, Pure brand 4 caps. Very rigid in taking it. He is now cancer free.
What a simple thing and it worked for him. This will assist in ridding the body of many diseases and aids cancer patients. My friend in the 80's was taken severely ill, when an epidemic of Meningitis took over Hong Kong. She was one of the few survivors, as a chinese doctor took over and fed her the Mushroom formula.
We are under a lot of stress this start of 2013. Put your faith in a higher power and meditate. Being stressed out will not help heal you. Many are taking to illegal drugs but that is not the answer.
Picture yourself in a place like the one above, get in a hammock and meditate. Will do a lot of good.
I am blessed with healing and pray for its continuance. It is up to me to help myself heal.
Blessings to you all!

Happy New Year My Friends
I finally returned to my blog. I had written one in December but it would not upload so I did not got back to fix it. I hope things are going well and you all had a wonderful and blessed Christmas and New Year.
So much is happening in the world, it is hard to concentrate. The negative happenings have taken hold of too many people who do not know how to cope and thus meltdown. Corruption is everywhere from the highest in the country and on down. God and belief in a higher power, has been thrown out the window by the masses. We do not have to have a religion to believe in something bigger than ourselves. That is the mistake that is being made. I suggest meditation daily and looking into the good in the earth. This picture I took, sums it up for me, So much beauty to behold and look away from the negative.
The healing of ourselves and others is also in the form of energy and belief. The events of December, the 8th , 11th, 21 st etc, were of a celestial nature and some have not occurred like this for thousands of years. The magnetic field changed drastically and anyone not grounded properly, went over the edge. Fear driven beliefs make us ill. I am happy to say I am much better, with my latest cancer markers the lowest they have been in several years. Plan to keep it that way.
Many souls are passing now as they cannot bear to be in this troubled world. We will hold fast and do all we can to stay well.
There are new supplements and one by the company called PURE, has a new form of Curcumin that is healthier and works better than the previous capsules of powder. It not only be used for cancer but for other ailments. The mushroom family is also wonderful in healing, Shitake being one and several others. My friend, 40 years ago, survived a massive outbreak of meningitis overseas, and an oriental doctor put her on a mushroom regime, she was one of the few who survived.
There is so many natural things available to us that we have gone so far away from what our grandparents used as normal healing things, and have replaced them with unneeded drug forms, touting the same things that natural does.
On Facebook today, I came across the cutest story. A lady was in her yard and a lovely yellow lab came up to her, he looked tired but was well fed and had a collar. She patted his head and talked with him. When she went inside he followed her. Went over to a small rug and went to sleep. About an hour later he wanted out. Next day he was back and this went on for several weeks. He would come in lay on the rug and have a nap. The lady finally attached a note to his collar and said" I want to know who owns this lovely dog, did you know he comes to my home every day and has an hours sleep on my rug, then leaves?" Next time he came he had a note on him which read, " he comes from a home of 6 kids with 2 under 3 years, he is trying to catch up on his sleep. She then added, "can I come with him tomorrow?" Now how wonderful is that. We need to seek the positive and encourage our friends and family to do the same.
Have a wonderful week and start the New Year right by being kind to yourself and someone else!

My dear friend Paula sent me the Myeloma Baby and I thought it appropriate to put Froggy in charge of saving us all. This is my take on what is happening around us. I will be glad to see when all this posturing from all the candidates is over. We need to heal the world and bring about peace and lessen suffering.
We are here as we chose to learn but it is overwhelming at times, especially to those of us who have not been well and are facing life threatening illness. Then the parents and children suffering outrageous attacks on their person and the horror of suffering.
I am using my Young living oils to keep calm, help my pain, and pass on peace to to others. Daily meditation and prayer (if you are the praying kind) do wonders to make us feel better.
We just took a wonderful drive thru the Redwoods of California, We have not been there in years. How Majestic and peaceful it is and fills you with wonder. There is so much to be thankful for and we can pass it on each day to others.
I am taking Stontium to heal my mangled bones, it helps calcium into ones bones at a faster rate, you cannot take Calcium and Magnesium at the same time, at least 6 hours apart. This is so much better than the chemical offerings and no known side effects. I also added MSN with Glucosamine and Chondroiton. I have had a bad knee since I was a teenager and with this bone problem from the MM I am suffering knee pain again. I have had 2 knee surgeries and hope never to have more, as it is still my parts in there. My last knee surgery was in the 70's.
I am trying to do more things with laughter as that is a really good way to boost the immune system.
I laughed my way thru this.
The Velcade SubQ along with my Poly MVA and other myriad supplements has me back on track and I have my next lot of tests in December. I am feeling great and being active, and have been a bit slow in posting information. I am still taking curcumin and Cold Liver oil (Carlson Brand) not as heavy as before.
It seems you never know what the day will bring, I pray for the people on the East Coast and hope they survive the coming storm. We need to meditate daily for the peace on our planet. This also will increase healing of the earth as well as the people.
I am looking into lots of new things to add on our health. We can be sure the medical industry is not paying proper attention with all the mix ups of medicines and the problems that came recently.
Have a great week!

That is how we should be with our family and friends, group together to give support. I apologize for the writing delay but I have a had a busy summer. This is what happens when your health improves 100%. MY MM is still in my body but the new meds plus the natural supplements, have given me the most normal blood work I have had in years. I have lost weight. The weight was a symptom of the last 2 years of illness, once I improved I changed nothing and the weight came off.
I am thankful to God and man for my improvement.
I had 4 months of Velcade inject subcutaneous but not continuous. 4 weeks on then 2 off. I must say it worked very well for me. At the beginning I had problems with the Velcade but after cutting the dose almost in half, I tolerated it extremely well and it gave the MM a solid kick.
I had the pleasure of have a few trips and enjoying them, Utah, Las Vegas, and the mountains of Idaho.
What a great experience to have no pain and actually enjoy my tripping about.Mountain air, new friends and lots of new experiences. I am still taking my supplements but am off the Velcade for now and will be checked in 3 months.
Times are tough for everyone, even if you are not ill. Have faith, meditate and if you so desire pray.
There is a lot a higher power can do for us all. We have to keep the faith with all the bad energy flowing about. Remember this is about choosing an honest person for the highest office in the land not about parties, or hanging on to old ways. We need peace and calm throughout the world.
I have lots of positive feedback from people using the polymva. Some are just using the polymva others are using with their chemotherapy, as it helps stop the side effects.
personally I have had the most minimum of discomfort from the Velcade (Which tends to aggravate the nerve endings causing neuropathy) I am fortunate only to have the tinest bit of it, which I put down to taking the Poly MVA at the same time. I skipped it on the Velcade day but took it the next day.
I also noticed a rise in incidents of Multiple Myeloma and hope this can be stopped. Such a nasty disease.
Here is my singing group this week and they sound wonderful. I am sad my singing voice has gone but one day it may come back. Take care and have a wonderful week:)
