It was a Snappy Birthday

I had a great time on my birthday; a few "sistas" came out from Regina for a sleepover, and a couple of the local gals joined us. We ate, drank and had lots of laughs! The rain stopped so we could enjoy a fire outside. 

Thankyou girls for all the gifts and your precious company. Laughter IS the best medicine!

 There is no more pain in my boob, so the nasty culprit got lasered. 

As for the possible swelling, I guess I forgot that one boob is bigger than the other. Silly me!

 I'm on the road for the next few days so until then.....go green! It's good for you!

I Can't Drive ... Fifty-Five!! Can I?

Finally home! I've been on the road for a week.

O.K. everyone, I know you are waiting to hear about the concerns that I've been having..........Wanna see my Happy Dance again?

I got checked out by the medical intuitive while I was home for my niece's wedding. What I picked up was giardia, which is a parasite that usually comes from water. The parasite settles in the ascendant colon and goes to the weakest part of your body and in me it was my left breast and she also found it in my muscles. So, 2 rounds of laser took care of that.

She also found zinc oxide in my liver. Zinc oxide is found in underarm deodorants which I don't use so I don't know where I picked that up from.

I'm pretty sure that I know how I picked up the parasite from water. In my village, I go to the town water building for RO water.What I don't do is javex my jug every time, so I will definitely do that on a regular basis.

  She checked me out from head to toe. There is no inflammation, no cancer, no nothing...I'm good to go! Yeeehaw!

My day starts with a glass of barleygreen (I prefer the powder mixed with water). Next is breakfast, which is always a super green smoothie.

In my smoothies are  3 large kale leaves (cut out the stems), 1 inch of ginger, about 5 stems of parsley, 6 inches of cucumber, 1 avocado, 5 tbsp of hemp hearts, 1 cup of blueberrries, 2 tbsp of lime juice and a cup of water or almond milk. That blender is packed! It makes 2 big smoothie cups and I drink it all!

  My neighbor and I went together and ordered the sea minerals; they have arrived and I had my first taste today. 1 tsp a day, you dilute it with water or doesn't taste that great but I don't care. When the order came, added info was in the package telling us to also add Barley greens to our diet, which we already do, and of course to eliminate red meat, soy products, alcohol and smoking.

I'm not going to live in a bubble, but obviously what I'm doing is working!

I do enjoy a glass of red wine and I still haven't beat those stinky cigarettes, but someday I will conquer that addiction.

I am going to book the pet scan for sometime shortly after the 17th of August, as that will give me one more checkup before I go.

I feel terrific. I have also started jumping again on my rebounder (mini-trampoline) to oxygenate and strengthen my body. I'm sitting at 115 lbs, no aches and pains, it's all GOOD.

I'm off this week so hope to get caught up with house and yard stuff.

I turn 55 on Saturday. It can't be; just yesterday I was 20! My oh my, how life is speeding by.

I'm working some fairs and exhibitions this summer, so if I'm not reporting in on a regular basis, you know that I am working.

Until next time, have a super green smoothie and put a big smile on your face. Have a great week everyone!

P.S. My surgeon's office still hasn't got back to me. I guess I'm not a welcome patient.

Delaying the Pet Scan

I was going to book the pet scan today, but will put it off for a bit. I've had the odd pain in my left breast and have been watching it closely every day. It looks a wee bit swollen and that doesn't sit well with me.

 So I am going to get re-checked by the medical intuitive and will repeat the protocol that I followed before. I need to be sure about all of this, and am not wasting all that money on a pet scan until I feel satisfied with all results.

  Sorry I haven't been writing much but have been so busy trying to keep up with life. Will write more at the beginning of next week.
