Quick Update: Consolidation 1B

I'm back in the hospital, but just for 24 hours. I'm receiving a new type of chemo this week which may or may not make me nauseated. So far I've been lucky. Let's pray my luck holds, shall we? This chemo will be given as an outpatient, for 8 days, over two weeks (I get a 3 day break in between). And of course this will be in tandem with the sexy oral chemo 6MP. I'm not very happy to be back at the hospital, but I love the nursing and doctor staff here so much, it makes it tolerable. Plus there is indoor walking space here.

In other news, I can't believe how much better I feel since going alkaline. I'm a total convert. I wonder, if there is something I can do to bring FOOD to the hospital for the other patients. And of course the big question is, can they learn to love kale for breakfast? I sure do!

Song Bird

Speaking of bliss (and of course grace) some of you have asked for the song sung "Divine" by Sasha Earle at the end of the Silly Walk video. You can buy her album from her Myspace page—and hear the song there. Or, download this version of the song with instrumentation and vocals added by Randin.

By the way, someone put a very annoying song in one of the comments on Sasha's page, and it plays over her music, so scroll down and stop it from playing. Myspace. Bleh. By the way Sasha, love the "Kul-cha" and the very sassy 1920 beaded head piece!

Yes! Yes! Yes!

You never know just what will be the thing to change your mood. I never expected that a day in the hospital, undergoing a CT scan, a lumbar puncture with Chemotherapy, and a bone marrow sample would help put things back in perspective but, it did. I'm doing well, and I am very hopeful for the future. The LDS Hospital Blood and Bone Marrow rocks. I love my team! If you ever have leukemia, go here!

But the kicker was the package I found on my doorstep on returning home. My friend Jennifer Laffranchini Hane makes chocolate, or so I had heard. This woman does not make chocolate, she makes the most incredible shakti-packed morsels of bliss I have ever consumed. These items are magical, medicinal wonders. 

What ever you are doing, stop now. Order chocolates from Raw Chocolatier
