Di does it yet again - she finds the most interesting websites and books. Be sure to check out her comments.

Well, I just came in from the back yard where it has begun to rain. I hope it keeps on raining instead of teasing me with the usual 2-minute downpour. My poor plants are barely hanging on. Even with the sprinkler system, the yard and flowerbeds look pretty dry. Thank goodness we put in the system this year, or they'd all be dead, I'm sure!

I've been so tired the writing hasn't been going very well, but will give it a stab again tonight. I have to pick up my son at 10:30 tonight as his car is still in the shop. I'm starting to get a little apprehensive about the test Wednesday. The only thing painful about my last biopsy was getting the shots to deaden the area, so I assume this will be the same. The nurse said they may give me that 'twilight sleep' where you're not really asleep but very calm. Sounds good to me.

I scheduled my doctor's visit today for Wed the 23rd in the afternoon. Will post here with my results as early as I can.

I've gathered up a list of naturopathic doctors and MD's who practice alternative medicine. Will start calling tomorrow to make appointments to check them out. So far the plan is to spend 8/24 through 8/31 doing the pre-diet. I have to stop eating all meat, fish, poultry, pork, dairy products, wheat, and a few other things I can't remember. Then on 9/1, I'll start the juice fast for two weeks. Then I have a 'coming off the fast' diet to do a few days and then I go forward eating 75% raw foods and 25% cooked foods. Still no meat, etc., until I get a clean bill of health from the doctor. Please forgive all my 'thens' in the previous sentences.

That's all I know for now, and of course, all of this is dependent on what my oncologist plans to do and what I hear from the nutritionist.

I'd better go get busy writing. I have a critique partner that likes to crack the whip!

More soon,

5 flies caught in my web:

I've been thinking about you, girl. You're doing a great job at staying positive. Sometimes I think that's half the battle.

pinkie: FYI, double check the formatting of the blog. I think the column width for your posts is off.

(Is it funny when I call you pinkie? I might call you that all the time now! I'll get Sean to call you pinkie. It'll be hilarious!)

Love you Mom.

I am having a TERRIBLE time formatting my blog. I think I need to get my daughter on the phone to help me!! This blogskin is supposed to have a lovely neon pink smoke on the right side, but it didn't come through. The email addy for the creator is no good - man!

Love you too btw!

I see the pink smoke on the upper right corner. I'll be thinking about you today and tomorrow.
