I don't need any details

The phone call actually caught me off guard, I had gone to my Nurse Practitioner, the day before and been given medication for what I convinced myself was the problem. It was not to be. My friend called,"go to the hospital," she said "they are expecting you; you're not depressed; your hemoglobin is 5.8." So began a new journey....... So many words to learn, Myelodysplastic Syndrome, MDS for short, formerly known as preleukemia. For the last nine months its been all about counts, red, white,and platelets... but what an adventure I have been on, God is so good, He has been with me each step of the way.
Monday, January 11, 2010, I begin the life saving treatment of a stem cell transplant at MD Anderson, Houston, TX. This blog will be about my journey.....my husband sometimes say to me, "I don't need to know any details", so my hope is that I will not get mired down in the details, but leave you with the hope and peace I feel because God loves you and me; and He hears our prayers and I am living proof of those prayers.

God willing, until tomorrow.....

So glad you did this for us - those who love you. If you don't mind I want to send the link to the girls in both my classes. They are prayer warriors and they will have your back!! Let me know. I think if you click my picture it will link to my blog. It's mainly just for me--my ramblings and a place to write them down---but if you are bored. HA!! I love, love, love you. Expecting great rejoicing in the days ahead.

HI again....

Dr. Robert O. Young



The other thing that is amazing and working really well is this Alkaline program. Right and left people are healed of Cancer!! I was into Raw foods at one time and came across this man.

This is a Dr. who uses foods and supplements to bring your body and blood in order. In order to stop and cure cancer you have to go off all sugars and keep your Alkaline above 7.4. You check your morning urine every day with PH tape. By drinking certain Green juices and PH salts all day long you can reduce the tumors and get ride of it. Also you can turn any type of disease around! Below are some info by the Dr. (he has a clinic as well)
and one mans healing journey.

My prayers are going up for you and for LIFE!!!
