UK - Oxon - Blenheim Palace Gates By Darrell Godliman
as we travel back & forth from home to the Texas Medical Center for
radiation treatments I have much time to reflect on, well, almost everything.
REK's driver is up front with him and I sit alone in the back with Rush Limbaugh's radio program running. I do quite like Paul Ryan, btw.
I think how far medical technology has advanced in the last 30-40-50 years
and reflect that so much of it was because of NASA
and their contractors, and now NASA is closing.
I think how fortunate we are to be in Houston with
all the greatest cancer facilities 30 minutes away.
then I think our positive mind-set is a part of the treatment too.
& so is good nutrition, hydration, good sleep, and having no stress.
does anyone know how to accomplish this?
my patient receives the best care, has a household full of help so he is, in fact,
in assisted living :)'s
he's positive & so am I, so are his adult children
I am learning much about foods, the real values of eating a super high-protein diet,
that nothing can replace real cow's milk (even no fat milk, lactose-free milk, etc.)
because of the calcium & protein.
that radiation makes people really really tired as the treatments go on,
so the stressful thing for me is that I keep all stress from him, you know?
& a new medication for pain, a nasal spray, called
Lazanda, a fentenyl spray, super fast-acting in about 5 minutes, lasts up to
1 hour. REK has bad back pain when he lies on the metal radiation table, it
is agonizing. 2 sprays of this new Rx takes ALL the pain away.
it is a miracle drug.
why Blenheim Palace's photo...
because it looks peaceful, a quiet place for reflection.
all in all I am doing OK.
take care of yourselves, my friends.
if you haven't before, begin today.
it makes a huge difference in your future.
love to you all....
