Full Disclosure

The final report from radiology came in late yesterday.

There was a small piece of cancer in my left breast – something unexpected.

So while I am still thinking I may be cancer free because of the bilateral surgery, I know I need to bring more energy to my recovery.

My son is suggesting organic brocoli sprouts. I don’t think it could hurt to try them.

It’s been more than 5 hours since my last pain pill. I’m working towards healing without pain. I think that’s the approach that will work best for me.

I’m opposed to pain. But I know that pain leads to growth.

Truly I think I’ve grown quite enough.

    I thought of you when I read this quote today in a BeliefNet email:

    “Trust has nothing to do with moral courage.
    It occurs when we have nowhere else to turn,
    when we reach the end of our need to control. ”

    You know this well, True Wisdom. Trust in the benevolence of the Universe and feel cared for and peaceful. Of course, do all you feel drawn to do – broccoli sprouts sound wonderful. (Trust in the Lord, but row like hell!)
    Meanwhile, healing light and energy surrounds you, and you are well and safe.

    It is a big relief to read you are home recovering and that your pain is manageable. Don’t wait too long between pain medication doses; you don’t want the pain to get ahead of you. The lower the pain level, the quicker the recovery. You will need less in the long run. Overcoming that state of denial that envelopes people in the face of bad news saved your life. It’s human nature to deny anything is wrong. We hear every day about someone ignoring signs, unable to cope; they put it all aside and do something about it only when it is too late. It’s tragic and wrong with such high cure rates now. When you are up to it, would you consider exploring the topic of overcoming denial and what you think spurred you on to seek a diagnosis knowing you could receive bad news?

    I would bet your son meant organic broccoli and not the green stuff with chemicals in it and on it. Do you have one of those machines that liquifies veggies and fruit to get the full benefit from the raw state?

    I am so happy to see you writing! Get well very soon!
