6 Month test results!!!

Good evening!!! I just wanted to pop on here and let you know that I had another milestone! My 6 month check up!!! Everything went great! All my tests came back good!!! What a relief!!! I panic every time and worry until I get my results back!
I also got to meet my new Dr. He had a sense of humor! I like that! I still miss Dr. Pro, but at least there is a nice dr. to replace her!
Our ritual for the test results is my hubby always goes. I don't ever want to go by myself for those. And we always get a cappuccino macchiato. Here is a pic of us right before we got the news.

And here is a pic with me and Dr. Younes

So I am good for another 6 months!!! Woo hoo! :)
Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes! :)

6 month check up 9-2-10

Hello! If you are reading this I appreciate you coming by!
Tomorrow is another milestone, my 6 month check up. It will be all day "violations" as I like to call it and drinking yucky stuff. I have a new dr since my dr moved to Pa. to practice there. I will be meeting the new dr. next week.
So much has been going on lately. A friend of mine Kat died last week of breast cancer. She was a primmart friend, and I actually met her at the convention. She was a sweet person. Because of that and my mom's bday was the day before she died (and my mom died of cancer in 93) it has just sent me into paranoid mode. I just want to get this day over with.
I haven't felt like crafting lately. I had listed some dolls on ebay and they didn't sell, so I wonder why bother? Well it is what I love to do! I feel like part of me is dieing when I don't create. It is who I am! Plus it keeps me sane, if you want to call me that lol! Most people just call me Nutt!
I signed up for the Primmart ornie swap and didn't have any idea what I was going to make, but I signed up anyway. Well I think that was the kick in the butt I needed! With a dead line it makes me focus on the finish line. Today I sat down and drew out a pattern! I stuffed my 1st one! We aren't allowed to show pics until all the ornies are delivered or I would share pics here! I hope they turn out like I hope!
Sorry to rant! I have kept a lot bottled up and I feel better now! :)
If you could say a prayer for me I would appreciate it!!! I will update as soon as I find out anything!!!
Thank you for your continued support!

Below is an email I received. This was not from my mom as she has already passed. Having had cancer and knowing how scary it is I thought I would pass on this info to others. Who knows someone may just benefit from it. I know I craved brocoli, avacadoes and blueberries and all 3 are cancer fighters as well!
It is worth a shot!

My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style
asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in
the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did
this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3
lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week.

Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3 months.

Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a
friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy of
an article, entitled, Asparagus for cancer 'printed in
Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it
here, just as it was shared with me: I am a biochemist,
and have specialized in the relation of diet to health
for over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned of the
discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus
might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked with him on
his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable
case histories. Here are a few examples:

Case No. 1,

A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.

Case No. 2,

a successful businessman 68 years old who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. Afte years of medical treatments, including radiation without
improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 months,
examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had
disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

Case No. 3,

a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he was put on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it By August, x-ray revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared..He is back at his regular business routine.

Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of
years with skin cancer. She finally developed different
skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting
specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting
on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin

looked fine and no more skin lesions. This woman
reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her
kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10
operations for kidney stones, and was receiving
government disability payments for an inoperable,
terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of
this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.

I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of
material medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the
University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was
used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even
referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of
asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!
We would have other case histories but the medical
establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of
the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to
spread this good news and help us to gather a large
number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical
skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.

For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before
using, and therefore canned asparagus is just as good as
fresh. I have corresponded with the two leading canners
of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that
these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives.
Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to
make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the
patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and
evening. Patients usually show some improvement in from
2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a
cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on
present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do
no harm and may be needed in some cases. As a biochemist
I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can
prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I have been
using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We
take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste
with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my
wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a
practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our
regular checkups. The last blood survey, taken by a
medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional
approach to health, showed substantial improvements in
all categories over the last one, and we can attribute
these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink.
As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all
aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a
result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better
with the latest theories about cancer.

Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called
histones, which are believed to be active in controlling
cell growth.. For that reason, I believe asparagus can
be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth
normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and
in acting as a general body tonic. In any event,
regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a
harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from
using it and it may do you much good. It has been
reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that
asparagus is the highest tested food containing
glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most
potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.

Pond fun/decorating! and baby ducks!

This is what my hubby and I have been working on! The kids are going to have so much fun this summer! We are going to have our own water park in our own back yard! LOL
We have an island in the middle with 2 large oak trees on it and a bridge that goes across. We are building a gazebo over the water. The kids can get in their tubes and circle the island! Now we have a rope swing they can swing out! We still need to get an ariator for the back of the pond. We love the water tower! (my hubby made it!)It ciculates the water and sounds so nice! My hubby also finally got our swing up! OMG! I love sitting out there and listening to nature! It is so calming! We are working on a waterfall as well not only for looks but to circulate the water as well!
Here are some of the pics:

Here is the swing! Hubby added 2 seating areas to the sides and laid some brick down for our feet!

And last but not least here are our 15 baby ducks! They are growing so fast!

Finally got some mojo back!

I have missed sewing more than I can tell ya! Now that I work outside the home, there just isn't enough of "Me" to go around! We have been working on our pond on my off days so that has been taking time away from my me time as well!
I had made this 3D doll a while back, but wasn't satisfied with the frame. It needed something more. Well I finally figured out what it needed! Some rusty stars paint and staining! LOL The only problem I am having is how to ship her? Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated! If anyone ever ships paintings and knows how to package them PLEASE email me or post! TY! :)
Here she is!

I also finished up a Bear and 4 5 1/2" Raggedies as well as a stand up Raggedy. Still not sure if I want to list them on Feebay or just post them here or on my website! Heck if you see one that calls to your heartstrings, shoot me an offer!
Here are their pics:
