Day 1

We had some internet problems so the post from yesterday published today but the internet is fixed now. Unfortunately skype only works with video or audio not both at the same time. At least I get to see my boys, oh how I miss them.

When the Lord led us down this alternative medicine route we knew it would be tough and to be completely honest it is really tough. Today we continued on the diet and the coffee breaks. If you want to more about those you can read about it here. My body started to cramp during the coffee breaks so I was quite uncomfortable all afternoon. I have finally gotten relief tonight, praise the Lord.

We walked down to the beach to watch the sunset, it was beautiful. I will post pics sometime. unfortunately we missed the surgeon who was came to put in my IV catheter. The Doctor will take me in the morning to the hospital to have it placed. I will be leaving Danica here with the nurses. Please pray her schedule works out so she will be asleep while I'm gone.

I received my first injection today, in my hip. Owww!!! When the fluid went in it was quite painful. The severe pain lasted about an hour and now, 3 hours, later I don't feel it. The nurse will give it to me in the morning and she promised that she has a more gentle touch. Oh how I hope so!

The Lord is so faithful and has blessed us with a wonderful staff. Upon arrival the doctor's wife, who is the sweetest woman, prayed over me. Other nurses have offered up prayers for me. I truly believe just like all the other struggles we have faced prayer is the most important thing.
