Update on the treatments

I began saying we were choosing an alternative treatment. I should say that it chose us. We were in the process of trying to be accepted by John Sealy UTMB when all processes of communication with them was stopped by the offices and no appointments were made. I had found from a wonderful herbalist friend of a Doctor in Italy, Dr. Simoncini,who has a very informative website. I started trying to implement his treatments at home but began to have questions. I emailed him when what to my surprise, he emailed me back. What a blessing in our lives. He hadn't any reason to communicate with us...we haven't paid him any money, but he has continued to assist me in making decisions along the way. Two weeks ago we began the treatments of Bicarbonate of Soda IV. At first we were not sure that they were being effective, however, we began noticing that there were definite changes going as the week went on. Although Dr Simincini did have us stop for 2 days when my hero's temperature raised to 100 degrees. The 6 days of IV treatment was followed by 6 days of enemas of warm bicarbonate of soda solution. This treatment is what causes most of his discomfort. We have seen tumor passed and a continued increase of strength so he has only missed two days of work. Not to say he hasn't been stressed. He has lost 35 lbs, most of which he was able to do without! But has started lifting small bar bells to restrengthen his arms.

A Continued Journey

The family has fussed at me for not posting enough...They are right I have been amiss. There is much that I have not been good at documenting.

This last spring my daughter won a major battle in her effort to stay sober from drugs. ( At present she has been sober for 1 year and 3 weeks.) She got her little son back that had been denied her by an unrighteous in-law. Bryan is a jewel. He can twist you around his little finger with just a glance. Yes, I am a proud grandmother. We love having him with his mother and
being able to spend time with him.

In April, my Wonderful husband, who is so much a real part of me, was diagnosed with colo-rectal cancer. Apparently considered stage 3 to 4. We had Cat-scans, biopsey, etc. done.
We do not have insurance. With this consideration, and the knowledge of the sloooowness of the medical paper work system ( I am a retired RN), we decided to seek assistance from our friends who have knowledge of natural treatments.
