Day 8

One week down and two to go!

The Doctor came in today and did another physical and went over my blood work. No other cancer markers were found except for my thyroid globulin was extremely high. Go figure. He actually said these words, "I could just kick myself for not taking a picture of it (my tumor) right when you got here. It has gone down considerably." Praise the Lord the great physician!

He said the only lymph nodes that were swollen were on the right side of my neck next to the tumor.

 We went to the beach again today, does wonders for my spirits. Isn't this beautiful?
How much fun would it be to ride a horse on the beach. We've seen it a bunch. Here and in South Padre but never actually done it.

 I put these pics up on FB already but posting them here for my non FB family to see.

I continue to struggle with the food here. It is part of my medicine and although its not a stretch from my normal diet, beside being completely vegetarian and vegan, the lack of taste is starting to get to me. They purposefully keep the food bland in order to make it easier on my detoxing body. Not to mention the premise of the Gerson diet is extreme protein and sodium restriction. Please pray for me. Thanks.

Danica is still congested in the mornings and continues to cough to get stuff out of her lungs but overall is doing much better. The doctor said that both of our lungs sound clear. Praise Jesus.

Thank you all so much for your continued prayers. We have a very long road ahead but we can already see the Lord working and healing.

  3. Wow, what a journey. Praise the Lord for peace and guidance he gives. So what does a "coffee break" mean? and would you be able to tell more of your treatment plan, is it out of country? Just curious. If you can't elaborate, i understand. Praying for cancer to be gone from your body.

  4. Great progress, Autumn. So wonderful that you are 1/3 of the way thru this time away. Thanks for posting the sweet pictures of darling Danica. Thankful she is able to cough and clear some of that stuff. Praying for good rest (for both of you) as she gets better. Praying for you to be able to continue the detox and tolerate the bland diet. And praising God for His work in your life, body and health. Step-by-step.
    ((hugs)) and prayers.
