Mary, will be thinking about you today!  I don't have any information to help, but will send prayers and positive vibes your way.  Your Russian radiologist will do wonders, I am sure!
*Hugs*

Mary I am visualizing...
This is the Russian super rad beam Nikita (which means undefeated) zapping all those nasty cells to the far away world of Oblivion




Love,
Carrie

thanks Carrie & Kristin - fells SO GOOD to get this started!!  Got staples out of head from biopsy and fist treatment - blast of white light to purify the chemistry .  Love Nikita!!  Love my MD's Russian accent- so perfect for her role.  Came home to a car waiting out front with a huge pink basket of stuff from work.  I feel truly blessed now that this nasty cat is out of the bag.  Let the light shine in - Love Mary

(((Mary)))

Russian Docs are the best, because they have to go back to Medical School A-Z, unless they are the Creamiest Cream of the Top Docs in the USA...
SIL is from the USSR, as well as an assortment of "Doc's Assistants", who were almost always more knowledgeable than the doc... 

Zillions of colorful magic fairies, elves and brownies have come to surround our sweet Mary during these treatments...they will be singing happy songs, wishing wellness, and prayers of love to you...oh yes, and a gazillion-million fairy kisses...you look beautiful dressed up as a virtual column of pink, to help us celebrate the month of October:  Halloween-Breast     BOO        BOOB  

White Light is supposed to be a good thing, like in, Transcendental  Meditation, to achieve Nirvana...well, I did experience it once...as a passenger in the back seat of a Camero, in High School, a bad car wreck, and was in the hospital for three weeks.  In those days, people were kept in the hospital for observation.  It was Psychedelic...spelling?

Oh Mary, I wish you were going on a Painting Tour to Europe...and not this.  At least you are here with your family, and loved ones.  Come to think of it, you would have had to come back to the states...so, what about making FUN plans for the FUTURE, and when you are feeling great, go somewhere, oil paints, easel, and a refreshed new you will be ready to paint!!

Love,
Indi

Mary,
What a wonderful homecoming!  It is amazing how blessings can always be found, even in the midst of cancer treatment!  And your ability to find them and focus on them will help get you through, I just know it!

Continued prayers and hugs!
Kristin

SO- BIG DAY - treatment 2, feeling good - Irina gave me a little lick of ativan that helped me sleep the whole night last night- did wonders - I am on 12 mg of dexo not happy about that, but she says wait a while for swelling to go down - I am using the bosswellic, and stuff too - they did not exactly say no. 

Fairy painting trip on the loose - sounds like a plan Indie -

My sister Jane is an attorney working remotely from my FL house to VT.  So she gets an email of concern about me from one of her clients- who it turns out has her one BC edu site:  http://www.knowbreastcancer.net/  And she wants to be sure i am taking the D,  I reassured her you all set me up with that,  Isn't life interesting??

Had a crown finally put in over a root canal tooth today.  My DDS worked in Georgetown with head and neck cancer patients.  She insisted I had to get flouride on my teeth to protect them from the radiation, which will eventually ring them with decay at the edges - it is a phenomenon of some sort.    So I am going to  go paint my teeth and go to bed, Indie.

Gina,. could not make it through the flick - laptop cannot deal well with it - but saw some funny things along the way.  Thank  you for all your prayers and vibes, and LOVE - MAry

Thinking about you lots, and sending prayers, gentle hugs, and the few bonus eyelash fairy kisses. 
 
I visited the Knowyourbreastcancer.net site last night, and spent quality hours reading about environmental issues, soy, household products and mold mycotoxins.  Thank you for sharing!  About the teeth, I've had some of the same issues as your Dentist warned you about regarding decay...wonder if it was induced by rads...

Love you Mary, and HOPE is always within reach.  You are the best-est, most-est, greatest!!!

Love,
Indi

Thank you dear friends in breast land.  I just annointed my head with comfrey and burdock.  The rad Dr. said not to worry about the teeth - she was not going near them.  I guess it is when you have neck issues. 

I have to lay off the ativan tonight - I have been very woobbly all day - maybe from the Ativan, maybe who knows.   Time to rest -  long day - glad sister  is here and I have lots of sick donated days now - XOXOXO MAry  relish all love and fairy drizzzle - M

Wow g, so beautiful and relaxing.  I've always loved butterflies, they have fascinated me since I was very young. 
The amazing way these beautiful creatures come out of their cocoon, and emerge into butterflies. 
I actually named my middle daughter Vanessa, which MEANS butterfly!

Oh yes ... my dentist told me my current dental issues are a result of having had chemo and rads (3 years ago already)

You are on my mind and in my prayers throughout the day.  I hope you are able to get some good sleep tonight to allow your body to heal and fight off the SEs of the treatments.  Sleep well.
