    second bout with Leukemia; now a bone marrow transplant

    Well, I figured I should let everyone know about the last 5 months.
    As some of you know, I had a second relapse of my leukemia.
    This particular bout was a lot worse and actually got into my spine and brain as tiny tumors.
    I lost feeling in both my legs and arms (including hands and feet).
    Oh yeah, also lost my ability to breath and swallow.
    Good times!
    After beating the odds (2% survival predicted), I relearned to swallow (totally craved a Hardee's Thickburger and shake!)
    Needless to say, I got my burger on the way home ;D

    Next step is an autologous bone marrow transplant at UNC Chapel Hill.
    At least there will be internet in room.
    www.mysct.net explains the process.
    I'll keep in touch!
    Its better to lose the first game than the last one.

    Re: second bout with Leukemia; now a bone marrow transplant

    Sounds like you are making great strides in your recovery.

    Eat pretty much nothing but organic fruits, grains, legumes, and veges for the next few months.
    This is a snippet of info from studies done at John Hopkins (You may know this already):

    d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruit help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

    e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

    12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

    13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls o f cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the ca nce r cells.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!
