I was determined to make it to my friend Chloe’s wedding. I knew how important it was to her for me to be there for the day and so I wanted to ensure that I made it.
I had an appointment with my GP first thing in the morning so that I could update him on how things were going. I told him about my visit to Cornwall and that I had been able to process some of the shock and he said that I appeared calmer this week than last week. We discussed my pain levels and the side effects of the chemo and agreed that it is a good idea to keep my pain meds topped up in my body at the moment as I am suffering with the pain. My liver is very swollen and you can feel it protruding below my ribs. I also told him about my fasting plans, which I will reveal just as soon as I have discussed them with everyone that needs to know first and he told me that he wholeheartedly supports me.
I then got myself showered, packed and ready to travel to Kent for Chloe’s wedding and went to the hospital to get my PICC line dressing changed. Ioannis then dropped me off at St Pancreas to catch the train. He was coming down later for the evening.
The wedding was lovely and Chloe looked so beautiful in her dress. I was so very happy for her. I had to pop off for a nap during the meal as I was exhausted, so I missed the speeches. I went back into the reception once Ioannis arrived. It’s quite eye opening seeing your friends drunk when you are sober! OMG! Now I know how bad I was when I was drunk!! These are some of the friends that I have partied the hardest with in my party girl days.
Ioannis and I went back to our room about 10pm. He was absolutely shattered too. It’s hard work both physically and emotionally for him running around after me and coming to terms with all that is happening with me. He is an amazing man.
We made our way back home this morning after amusing ourselves at the state of everyone at breakfast nursing their hangovers.
Tim came over for a chat and a smoothie and to give some boy back up to Ioannis… I got ganged up on! Ha.
Then it was time to get packed and get the train to Norfolk to come and stay with my Mum for the weekend. I have been looking forward to seeing her all week and spending some quality time with her. She has been in the kitchen cooking me wonderful, nutritious organic, vegan food and I am so very grateful. It’s lovely to be looked after by my Mum.
I wanted to leave you today with a post from Dr Kim in my blog comments. I thought it was very worthy of being in the main body of the blog as it far better explains the energy frequency of foods and drugs that I was trying to explain in my last post.
“You are a great student and a wonderfully courageous and inspiring being Hannah – It is a privilege to work with you – I wonder if it would be helpful for me to clarify a little the content of our exchange?
You and I are very clear that there is nothing inherently good or bad about the drugs of the foods. What we are working with is the realisation that the chemicals require energy to be metabolised and then cleansed from the body by the liver, kidneys, skin and other organs. All material is energy – energy of different density and frequency – this is simple physics. The chemotherapy, the pain killers, the mood stabilisers, they are all drugs with particular signatures and modes of action, targeting particular cell types and areas of the body and mind, and they all require specific chemical reactions and cellular processes to be processed by the body safely, All this requires energy.
Foods are of different qualities. Those that are highly processed, packaged and changed may be those that we find hard to give up because they are addictive. Generally such foods require energy to be digested and made safe within the body, rather than contributing useful energy that makes us feel more alive and lighter in spirit and mind. Dormant foods on the other hand are those things like grains such as rice and oats and some herbs that activate when chewed and taken in to the digestive system. Living foods are those that are just killed or picked and that are had fresh and as soon after harvesting as possible – their frequency (which can be imaged nowadays) is higher – and the more pure and fresh the fruit or vegetable, the more energy it contains and the higher the frequency of its vibration and so the greater the impact on your body and health and vitality.
So, when undergoing the chemotherapy as you are – wisely in my view, and as you said poignantly, currently buying time for the other work you wish to do, it is important that we do all we can to optimise the function of the body’s organ systems to process the chemotherapy and its consequences as best it can without totally draining it. This is simple biochemistry and physiology – good medicine and good health practices – the two systems working hand in hand. That is why the juicing is important every day for you at the moment, and why it is important that it is all as fresh and organic as possible – nothing “foofy doof” about it.”
Thanks Kim for clarifying that so beautifully.
Until next time….
Love Hannah x
