CAT Scans and Further Plans

Cat Scanning

Excellent News! My CT scan was negative for metastases in other organs!! Woohoo! I still have a PET scan to go which shows mets the size of tiny cell balls but they worry less about those as the chemo should escort them politely out the door.

Lots of people have been offering help and I am trying ever so hard to say “yes” and “thank you” which is not really in my nature (the yes part isn’t, I am actually a pretty good thanker). Even harder will be the asking but I am going to try to do that as well. Lord knows you all need some deposits in your karmic banks. It’s the least I can do.

I have had the request from a certain luddite (initials LF) that it might make sense to give my contact deets for those who are less likely to spend their every waking minute on line (smart luddite). cell: 802-871-2097, address (for those snail mail cards (prezzies), oops did I say prezzies? No no no, don’t not send prezzies. No! I meant no prezzies aren’t welcome, no really, presents aren’t overrated, it’s your thoughts (and presents that count) OMG I am cracking myself up). Anyway, address: 243 Malletts Bay Ave, Winooski, VT 05404 and email: majahaho@gmail.com. AND, should you want to send a secret message that might have illegal connotations on here, you do that through Villagers at the top. Otherwise comment away!

Further Plans

So, I will be going to Boston quite regularly for the next 7 months starting with chemo, this Wednesday after a Tuesday full of tests. Will and Maggz and I will travel to Beantown and stay with Mart and Rog. I’ll get my first dose of poison and we’ll head home. From what I can tell per Mo Hill Collins, the chemo is cumulative in its side effects so I expect to feel okay for a bit. The first round is every other week moving to Mondays for 4 cycles (8 weeks), the second is 1 Monday/1 Sunday in a row, then one week off for 4 cycles. If you have interest in driving to and from Boston and are free on Sundays or Mondays, let me know and I’ll send you a sign up.

As for other help, I have no idea at this point what I am going to need but I’ll try to promise to let you know :).

Now for Fun Stuff

David’s dream pre head shaving: “We are walking around the back yard at Rindge. You show me where you buried your hair near the well. The small area you dug up was smoothed over and fresh cut yellow tulips lay upon the spot.” Such a lovely image.

My thoughts re breast reconstruction: if I don’t have it done, do I get to go shirtless like boys? I still remember the day when mom told me I had to start wearing a shirt. I was devastated. I couldn’t understand what was different today that wasn’t the case yesterday. So, yeah, yard work sans shirt!

Bison Visitation

Buffalo Burl

What does this mean? I’m glad you asked! “If a bison shows up for you, it may indicate opportunities to manifest or move toward manifesting abundance in some area of your life. This has hidden within it several cautionary notes though. This is not a time to push or force. Follow the easiest path.

The appearance of the buffalo also implies that the law of synchronicity is operating with in your life at the moment. Things will happen in the time, manner, and means the is best for for us if we allow it.

If the bison has shown up in your life, look for opportunities for abundance and increase. Also ask yourself some important questions. Are you honoring that which you seek? Are you remembering that the divine is essential to all thinks in the physical? Are you giving honor to yourself and to the efforts of others within your life? Do you show gratitude for what you already have?” -from Dictionary of Totems ala David

Good questions for all of us.
