Hot out, but no Hair makes you COLD! July 17, 2010

100 Degrees and Mel in Ski Cap!

Today’s been a better day with no radiation.  I’m grateful for a couple days off.  We are still waiting results from biopsy, hopefully Monday or Tuesday.

It cracks me up that I’ve been cold in this heat!! I found this great quote reading the LDS Church News today.  The Article on the back entitled “Weathering Life”  (Which feels like what I am doing right now.)  President Henry B. Eyring said, “Life has it’s storms, but we can and must have confidence…A foundation built on truth and illumininated by the light of God will free us from the fear that we might be overcome.”

We are doing this!! and I’m grateful for the miracle of another beautiful day.  Love all of you….Melanie

    Max and Caleb like to wear hats too when it’s 100 degrees out — which is probably a good thing since they don’t have very much hair either and the hats keep their little heads from burning in the summer sun. Please know that we are thinking of you and praying for you daily.

    Here’s a quote from President Uchtdorf: “It is your reaction to adversity, not the adversity itself, that determines how your life’s story will develop.” We often wonder why our Eliza was born with a bad set of lungs. As a parent there is nothing more painful than seeing a child suffer and not being able to do anything about it. I came to learn that the above quote is true. We love you and pray that His tender mercies might accompany you today and tomorrow and all the days of your life. Lots of love to you and your family.

    – Carl and Family

    Melanie, I was researching on detoxification and came across these recipes for detox baths, which may help . . .

    This bath counteracts the effects of radiation, whether from X-rays, cancer treatment radiation, fallout from the atmosphere, or television radiation. 1 cup of baking soda and 1 to 2 cups of ordinary coarse salt (or epsom salts or sea salt) to a tub of water. You can soak for 20 minutes.

    This bath opens pores and eliminates toxins and also helps to eliminate pain. Stir one cup of epsom salts and 2 tablespoons of ginger in a cup of water first, then add to the bath. Do not remain in the tub for more than 30 minutes.
